Please help identify this bird

(Nilgirs, India)

A large brown bird about the size of a duck. White stripes under the wings which are visible when it is flying. It has a duck like beak but not as big as a ducks. We have seen it a few times in our garden in South India and have never seen it before. Unable to get a picture yet.
