September 2015 calendar desktop wallpaper: Satpura Ke Ghane Jungle

September is here and so is our September 2015 Calendar desktop wallpaper for download,  from your friendly neighborhood desi Traveler.

Most of us when we go to jungle, focus on the big cats and return totally disappointed if they are unable to spot tigers. Don’t  get me wrong, I love tigers,  but in our country our love for tigers is very similar to our craze for cricket. Just like cricket crazy fans do not talk about any other sport, no matter what our sportsmen may achieve in other sports, same way wildlife for most of us means Tigers.  Now that is wonderful but as I always say in your quest for big cats do not forget other wonderful birds and animals around you. Every India jungle has fauna that if observed closely will give you oppurtunity for some excellent observation for wildlife, some memorable photographs and in my case September 2015 Calendar Desktop wallpaper.

This particular picture of a Sambhar was clicked in the Satpura National Park in Madhya Pradesh. Like I mentioned in the post Satupra forests are unique among all the forests in Central India, for many reasons. Right from being a combination of open grasslands, hilly terrain with different kind of flora found in different parts of the forest and combine that with the backwaters of Tawa Dam that play host to a variety of birds both local and guests from cooler countries.

Anyways let me talk about this picture of the Sambhar lurking from behind the magnificent mixed forest of Satpura. Just from the bark you can find Terminalia elliptica   or the Crocodile Bark Tree, known for storing water inside its stem.

Then you can see Teak tree right in the foreground in left, Mahua,( Madhuca longifolia ) , whose fruits are relished by sloth bear and when the fruits juices ferment in the Bear Belly the bear roam around in an intoxicated state and unfortunately often are caught by poachers.  Don’t forget to look at the grasses and creepers around some of the trees that give Satpura Forests their unique character.  Can you name the other trees seen in this picture ? No wonder Pandit Bhavani Prasad Mishra penned his immortal poem about Satpura Ke Ghane Jungle or the dense forests of Satpura. If you know how to read  Hindi, may I suggest you read the complete poem and decide it is written by a poet or a naturalist.

सतपुड़ा के घने जंगल 

        सतपुड़ा के घने जंगल।
        नींद मे डूबे हुए से
        ऊँघते अनमने जंगल।

झाड ऊँचे और नीचे,
चुप खड़े हैं आँख मीचे,
घास चुप है, कास चुप है
मूक शाल, पलाश चुप है।
बन सके तो धँसो इनमें,
धँस न पाती हवा जिनमें,
सतपुड़ा के घने जंगल
ऊँघते अनमने जंगल।

सड़े पत्ते, गले पत्ते,
हरे पत्ते, जले पत्ते,
वन्य पथ को ढँक रहे-से
पंक-दल मे पले पत्ते।
चलो इन पर चल सको तो,
दलो इनको दल सको तो,
ये घिनोने, घने जंगल
नींद मे डूबे हुए से
ऊँघते अनमने जंगल।

अटपटी-उलझी लताऐं,
डालियों को खींच खाऐं,
पैर को पकड़ें अचानक,
प्राण को कस लें कपाऐं।
सांप सी काली लताऐं
बला की पाली लताऐं
लताओं के बने जंगल
नींद मे डूबे हुए से
ऊँघते अनमने जंगल।

     मकड़ियों के जाल मुँह पर,
और सर के बाल मुँह पर
मच्छरों के दंश वाले,
दाग काले-लाल मुँह पर,
वात- झन्झा वहन करते,
चलो इतना सहन करते,
कष्ट से ये सने जंगल,
नींद मे डूबे हुए से
ऊँघते अनमने जंगल|

अजगरों से भरे जंगल।
अगम, गति से परे जंगल
सात-सात पहाड़ वाले,
बड़े छोटे झाड़ वाले,
शेर वाले बाघ वाले,
गरज और दहाड़ वाले,
कम्प से कनकने जंगल,
नींद मे डूबे हुए से
ऊँघते अनमने जंगल।

इन वनों के खूब भीतर,
चार मुर्गे, चार तीतर
पाल कर निश्चिन्त बैठे,
विजनवन के बीच बैठे,
     झोंपडी पर फ़ूंस डाले
                गोंड तगड़े और काले।
जब कि होली पास आती,
सरसराती घास गाती,
और महुए से लपकती,
                मत्त करती बास आती,
गूंज उठते ढोल इनके,
गीत इनके, बोल इनके

सतपुड़ा के घने जंगल
नींद मे डूबे हुए से
उँघते अनमने जंगल।

जागते अँगड़ाइयों में,
खोह-खड्डों खाइयों में,
घास पागल, कास पागल,
शाल और पलाश पागल,
लता पागल, वात पागल,
डाल पागल, पात पागल
मत्त मुर्गे और तीतर,
इन वनों के खूब भीतर।
क्षितिज तक फ़ैला हुआ सा,
मृत्यु तक मैला हुआ सा,
क्षुब्ध, काली लहर वाला
मथित, उत्थित जहर वाला,
मेरु वाला, शेष वाला
शम्भु और सुरेश वाला
एक सागर जानते हो,
उसे कैसा मानते हो?
ठीक वैसे घने जंगल,
नींद मे डूबे हुए से
ऊँघते अनमने जंगल|

धँसो इनमें डर नहीं है,
                मौत का यह घर नहीं है,
                उतर कर बहते अनेकों, 
कल-कथा कहते अनेकों,
नदी, निर्झर और नाले,
इन वनों ने गोद पाले।
लाख पंछी सौ हिरन-दल,
चाँद के कितने किरन दल,
झूमते बन-फ़ूल, फ़लियाँ,
खिल रहीं अज्ञात कलियाँ,
हरित दूर्वा, रक्त किसलय,
पूत, पावन, पूर्ण रसमय
    सतपुड़ा के घने जंगल, 
                लताओं के बने जंगल।

भवानी प्रसाद मिश्र

poem copied from : Kaavyaalay


How minutely the poet has captured the essence, and the mood of the jungle from the creepers, to the birds playing around to the fear that the darkness of the jungle invokes in you. He compares the Jungles of Satpura with the infinite Oceans that have no end or beginning. He has documented the jungles like a naturalist from the endemic Gond tribals to the yellow Mahua flowers and the giant webs of spiders. I am not translating the poem as I don’t think I will be able to do justice to the words. But if you do want to understand the poem visit the Jungle of Satpura, you may start your journey as a nature lover, but you will come back as a poet.  Though sometime I feel they are the same .


So  I hope you like the September 2015 Calendar desktop wallpaper, available in 3 sizes for download. To download the size you want just right-click on the picture and choose the option – ” Save As” and it will be downloaded on your machine.
