A Tigress Called Machhli - A Book By Supriya Sehgal

Book Review of “A Tigress Called Machhli” – By A Young Reader   We live in a world where the art of storytelling is at an all-time low while jumping high to post online is called content creation. Ok, I don’t want this post to be a rant but I miss good books that recreate a world that we are decimating one jungle at a time, sometimes due to our foolishness but mostly due to our greed. Now if you talk about books that can cater to young minds without being preachy or academic yet giving a strong message [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

My Latest Visit To Sultanpur National Park February 2019 Why I am writing a post about a visit to Sultanpur National Park that I did in February 2019 in April?

7 Indoor Plants That Are Hard To Kill By Neglect So my primary hobby is growing plants, traveling is actually second and travel blogging, in all honesty, is at third place in my hobbies and this I say again on my hobby travel blog.

April 2017 Calendar – Download Desktop Wallpaper Jurong Bird Park Singapore

Saddle Billed Stork on April 2017 Desktop Calendar Saddle Billed Storks are native to Sub-Sahara Africa, but our guy on the April 2017 Desktop Calendar is from Jurong Bird Park Singapore. The image was finalized last year when the calendars went out for print. But is it a coincidence or what that I was in Singapore twice only last week. Twice because once while going to Myanmar and once while coming back from Myanmar for Escapers 17, I had to enter Singapore twice. Now since I cleared immigration formalities twice this makes it as two separate visits technically. Not that [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

A Visit To Dudhwa National Park

Mystical Jungles of Dudhwa National Park The problem with Dudhwa is that it is far from Delhi so few people from Saadi Dilli venture there. Actually, wait a second, let me rewrite that sentence. “The Good Thing About Dudhwa is That it is Far From Delhi, so Few People From Delhi Go There. 😉 😉 ” Got it? Oh, I am going to curse myself for days to come to write this post.
