Sir,
Since the time we have been back from Pench me and my hubby watch your pictures and keep placing them in the locations that we would have seen in the forest.
They are like a replay to our memories of the safaris we took in Pench.
Thank You for sharing
Regards

Each Species and animals anotomy differs, it could be the Larynx. I have on record(video) two Dholes being separated from their pack and were desparate and searching, all they could do was whine and make a sound like how a young dog or pup does calling its mother or master.

Heard a lot about you and your experience with Abheek. Your wildlife addiction is incredible. Superb photographs. Wow. It would be a great pleasure to experience jungle with you Sir.

I think, you have displayed Pench very thoroughly. Great job Sir.

Subrat,
Thank you, Unfortunately Dr. Ghosh and I have been together in jungles just twice, so many programmes canceled in between the two meets.

At home, I have one wife and two kids to come back to...or else I would be a visitor to Hyderabad and my home would be elsewhere in the wild. My whole family is addicted to wildlife and jungles, just a mention...my daughter who now is seven has been in jungles with us ever since she was a three month old baby.

Hope to meet you too and together experience the wild. Actually, there are quite a few BHPian's I would love to be with, in the jungles of India.
Regards,

Sir, we have lots of similarities. I too have two daughters (5 years and 2 years). All are travel freaks. Been to many places like snow peaked mountains, hill stations and sea etc. etc. When the younger was six months old we had taken her to Rohtang, Manali. During my November 2010 trip to Bandhavgarh, elder one clicked tiger with my Nikon Coolpix 5000 (P & S). After experiencing jungle, now they do not want to experience snow, hill station and sea. They want more of wild experience.

About me: Rotting in the concrete jungle (Mumbai) and booring banking. Given a chance, would love to spend entire life in the wilderness.

Thanks

Subrat

Subrat,
The worst part of a trip to a forest, is the return back to city, it is so depressing the noise, pollution, traffic etc. We still are lucky and privileged to have whatever forests left in India, by default or just luck.

This generation of kids could in all probability be the last to see the the free roaming big cats.

At the rate the forest are shrinking is alarming and the last chance to change or reverse it is lost.

Sir, Its human nature to take privilege for granted which is sad. Indeed we are lucky to cherrish what Earth is all about.
Good thing is that with our passion we can help understand our family and neighbours about it.
Definately, it would be not the year 2020 like terminator or 2050 like harman baweja's movie but there will be a time when THE day will come. Sadly, it's all about what we learnt back in school, "survival of the fittest" and we the humans are on top of the pyramid (a privilege)

I would urge some of you extraordinary photographers to now start documenting the damage and threats that loom large over the continuation of these very forests we are so passionately documenting.

The story that really needs to be told over and over again is that of the decimation of India's natural heritage. Sadly, and this is a conclusion I have come to after a lot of effort to elicit a response from powers that control these environs, there just isn't enough alarm in this country on what is being damaged permanently.

Perhaps forums like these can mobilise a lobby effort toward preservation of forests and wildlife.

DKG, this is where my thread got the "title" and you will soon see the concerns I discussed with Abheek Sir and steps to over come as the thread unfold.

Deepak,
India's total forests are a mere 4% of the country's land mass, is this enough to sound an alarm??

Now, for the vote bank, we are giving title deeds to tribals thus legalizing forest land illegally occupied years back, comprising lakhs of acres in A.P. alone.

You know what happened in A.P. in 2009-10 after the government announced its above plans and the chain reaction that followed...thousand of acres were grabbed and trees felled in anticipation of future legalization. Does this too not ring alarm bells for the authorities concerned?
Are they concerned?
Regards,
