    Ah well sir, I am, to be honest, feeling surprised that such details have found their way on to the ISC platform at last and you of all the members did it! Really a big thanks sir for the information sir. Well, here's what Andhra Pradesh can boast of about state animal, object etc.

    State symbol:Poorna Kumbham
    State Animal: Krishna Jinka or the black deer as far as I know
    State flower: Something locally called as Kaluva Puvvu or Kaluva flower.
    State Game: Kabaddi

    Sai and Dr. Apurva,
    Nice to see the states coming up with their own important details about their states. So for we could see Tamilnadu, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra.
    I hope members from other state will also browze the net and post information about their respective states, to keep a consolidated record at ISC.

    Members, Please cooperate to add information to this thread.
