Thanks. Well I had West Sikkim [Varsey-Pelling] and the remaining part of North Bengal [Jaldapara and Buxa] planned up in the later half of this year. But then Namdapha Forest and Central Arunachal in December has me all fired up [though finances being the big, big hurdle as of now], will be passing through Siliguri and North bengal though.

Lets see what happens but anyways going up to Siliguri side at least by this year only.

Sure, it will be equally good for me to meet you up and looking forward to it as and when it happens. I do spend a day at my cousin sister's house in Pradhan Nagar, Siliguri.

Thanks, definitely it was. At least Kuldiha is something that can be done over on a weekend from Kolkata, and on the plus side it is still totally so unknown.

Great travelogue, I enjoyed reading it and the pics as well. I am a big fan of nature and wildlife. Your travelogue reminded me a lot of some of my own travels (though they were to other countries), but your pictures show me totally different areas than the ones I have seen. Overwhelming! I think I will have to go there myself one day, that's how much I was impressed.

Thanks, and the best part is that these areas are very less travelled plus we took all the forest roads by the map that were possible, with noone to talk about any restrictions. This is an impossibility with the more known wildlife sanctuaries/parks. This trip will remain as one of my best trips so far.

Also, definitely all of us here would eagerly await some of your own journeys.

And this is what makes this so attractive! To see the real wildlife not just some touristic place. Trust me, I have already added this place to my list.

I was actually thinking about it I'll guess there is a good chance I will start writing a bit about them after my holiday to India!

The interiors of State of Orissa has always been less travelled and will remain so because of its position. These two are best wildlife parks in Orissa:

1. Simlipal Tiger Reserve - totally wild but the big red flag being malaria and thats why still left for me to travel. The malaria is of an unique kind - a intense fever and the victim dies in 2 days, quite a few tourists have perished over here, one of my own relative. Definitely a course of anti-malarial drug before going, but their efficacy has been doubtful.

2. Bhitarkanika - It is a spectacular site of mass congregation of Olive Ridley sea turtles. Exactly right now is the month the turtles are coming up on the shore. Plus mega-sized salt water crocodiles, birds of all hues and colour, and washed up beaches as desolate it can be - with noone around.

Last night, TheOne® asked me to read your travelogue and now I can see why. Thank you. That was lovely.

It seems she now wants to see Orissa's Forests.

Please don't mind, I took the liberty of slightly correcting this beautiful picture

to this.

I personally prefer a little less haze, slightly cooler/bluer picture and I cropped off a little of the sky and increased the contrast.

Oh never, in fact it could not have come at a more opportune moment!!!

I am, after getting to know and trying all the functions of S3 IS, have just downloaded the Picasa software 3-4 days back in order to know about the different things that can be done through software - and then move on to learn about the more complex Elements or Photoshop. So I am myself trying out the different settings in Picasa and your editing has just been like a tutorial.

Thanks much
