My Sister’s Wedding
The year 2012 started with crazy ride. I ended up spending most of the time in the field – photographing and filming across one of India’s finest jungle called JIM CORBETT National Reserve. We started towards the Core area popularly known as DHIKALA, which is 35 kms inside from the gate.
The habitats of the Dhikala grasslands at Jim Corbett national Park, are one of the finest treat to the eyes. You can watch them as long as you want as you will not get bored, THE GIANT ASIAN ELEPHANTS. My favorite mammal on Mother Earth.
The newly born little ones trying to learn the ways of the jungle. The playfulness of them bathing with mud is a wonderful scene to watch. Its playtime for the new ones.
The Muddy Bathing of the herd of elephants at the grassland of Dhikala is a treat to eyes.

Jim Corbett National Reserve is like a second home. It’s the most beautiful jungle I have ever seen in India. This summer 2012 I visited this awesome place.
As far as I am concerned, now Every-time I close my eyes, i see those colors.. every time I stop my breath, i smell those eternal scents…
Every time there is a silence, i heard those sounds from the jungle, and everytime i speak, its aboutCorbett.. My Birthplace! I preserved those eternal scents of the Corbett, enough to keep the memories fresh until my next visit.. Every time it becomes difficult to leave that place .. this time too it was no exception ..
Muntjac deer fall in the category of those deer that are shy and elusive. They are also known by the name of Kakad deer or the Barking deer in India. The reason for the latter name is their alarm call, which seems very much similar to the barking of a dog.

Ladakh is an exotic destination with plenty of high passes, steep mountains and valleys abound. The route to Ladakh by road is through several scenic Mountain passes, known as ‘La’ in the local Ladakhi language and ‘Ladakh’ therefore means ‘Land of Passes.’ You can find some of the highest motorable roads in the world in Ladakh, which traverse these high passes and take you to exotic hidden destinations high in the Himalayas.
