In Bandhavgarh, comparatively more sighting of tiger is in Tala zone. Thanks for appreciation. Does your brother upload pictures in INW. If yes, tell me his name.

Nandu Ji, Thanks. One picture for you to stare at the eyes of the beautiful tigress called Dhitti (my beloved one), who was walking towards my gypsy, when i was dissapointed? Write the story later.

Here is the picture.

My goodness, what a spectacular shot. This moment has to be the most electrifying, and possibly terrifying for anyone as all that muscle starts moving toward you. Brilliant picture, magical !!

Bandhavgarh is beautiful. It caters to the needs of everybody. I mean it has beautiful Landscapes, insects, birds and mammals. Now, you need to decide, what is your interest.

Some photos from the third drive.

Wow Subrat, truly spectacular. The butterfly shot is gorgeous against that lovely backdrop, accentuates the subject so well. The Tiger looks so relaxed and restful, that look on her face looks like she feels least threatened and at peace. Alert to her surroundings and ever watchful. Briliiant shot, almost looks like you took that from a log cabin window.

What is that red and yellow fern?flower? never seen something so beautiful in the wild. So beautiful.

Love the shot of the tiger stretching, such a private and relaxed moment.

Your talent in taking pictures is so obvious, great work

@nandu^ thx for letting us know this was a Tigress !

Amazing work Subrat. Seeing your pics I can imagine your experience is shooting the jungle. One question what do you feel about people queuing in front of the tigers? Will it not be awkward for the tigers to see so many intruders?

Anyways I am glued to the thread. I cant stop wowing at the tigers.

Thank you so much. About your question. Hmmm! I do not have the answer. I too confused. You are asking about the question about whether we should allow tourism or not?

1. We should allow restricted tourism. When inside the park we should restrict ourself from getting too close to the animals. We should give them thier space.

2. Many a times, it happened that, the tiger coming towards your gypsy and you do not have the option to go back cause many gypsies behind you, so the tiger itself change its way.

3. Always i wanted to be in the wilderness, so read lots of books about these national parks and problems etc. by various authors namely Valmik Thappar, Jim Corbett and inheritance of Bandhavgarh by Bittu Saighal etc. Almost all books highlighted that the rate of Tiger dissaearance is mostly during monsoon, when the park remained closed.

So, request you all viewers to please behave responsibly, when inside the park. To get a good angle for photography, we breach the limit. Try to stop people getting too close. Point out if somebody throwing anything inside the park like gutkaa wrappers, chocolate wrappers etc. I want to spread a message through my log and photography and hope you all take this message to next level and create awareness among others.

Visiting to jungle does not show that you are a nature lover. What you are doing that is more important. Keep the jungle surroundings clean. Please do not take it personally. Some of the things i find awakard, When people smoke the moment came out of the park, do not you all think it is polluting the surroundings. Drinking alchohole, smoking and chewing tabacoo should be banned in all resorts and surrounding areas. Now think how many of you are nature lover and want to visit parks, if these things come up.

Lets get back to the log. Some photos from the drive.
