Wildlife Diversity in India

When you think about India and its varied wildlife, you cannot just miss out on the iconic Royal Bengal Tiger. Yes, today India is a proud host of 70% of the World’s Tiger Population but there is much more to Indian Wildlife than just the majestic Royal Bengal Tigers. From exclusive mammal species to rich avifauna and a wide range of reptiles and amphibians India is truly a haven for diverse wildlife. India is…

Gorillas in the mist

After having spent almost a decade photographing the cats, I decided it was time to capture some apes on film; armed with that will I stepped out into the land I had only read about in Dian Fosse's books : The Land of Volcanoes. A slice of undisturbed forest lies shared between the borders of Uganda and Rwanda; and is home to the last living population of the largest terrestrial mammal…

Back then I was still in my teens, with long hair running close to my shoulders minus the inkling of the scruffy forest on my face that I adore. For me this trip would be the ground breaking moment. The first visit to the Himalayas since I got head on my shoulders. The…

On most days there are just a handful gypsies in the entire park, the tigers are still shy of human attention & if you're lucky enough a Langoor will sound his alarm on spotting you as well.

The Tiger Dream

Last year's nascent trip to Ranthambore was a journey that made me fall in love with a place, I sort of despised. Always entangled in a dense web of controversies , Ranthambore still managed to be a favorite for inbound tourists; making things for us slightly on the expensive side in contrast to the Central Highlands. Every year I would visit Ranthambore, I would make it a point to start it off…

Dreaming at a Lake : BHIGWAN

When I was sleeping, my phone started ringing, I opened my eyes little and checked who was calling me,it was my brother from the room downstairs, to ask me to check if I was awake. It was 3:00 am and my brother was going to drop me at the pick-up point where everyone else was going to gather who were coming with me to Bhigwan but it was freezing cold outside…
