“How could I look my grandchildren in the eye and say I knew what was happening to the world and did nothing” – David Attenborough

Ignorance is truly bliss. When you don’t know much about what is happening to the environment, how much of Nature is being destroyed everyday, how many development projects are getting cleared at the cost of losing several species, how rapidly we are losing all the other living beings with whom we share this Earth with, […]

“Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing” – Clive James

“It was a sunny morning at Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary, and just within moments of entering the park gate, my eyes fell upon her. Her curvaceous body glistened with the droplets of the morning dew, and from water in the pool. As she lifted her lovely face, her sensuous lips emerged from the pool. My jaw […]

“Three Things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth”- Buddha

It’s not difficult for days to go rolling by. The Earth rotates, there is day and night, and before you know January has become June and June has turned into December. The moments that add up to all of this feels like it is slipping away, either into the patterns of the past or the […]

“In order for connection to happen, we have to allow ourselves to be seen – really seen” – Brené Brown

Where have I been the last four months? In fact, a few people wrote to me and asked me why I had stopped writing because they were really enjoying the posts. A conservationist and writer whom I really look up to, asked me if I had abandoned my blog because I had lost faith in […]

How alone am I, when I am alone?

“No water, no life. No blue, no green” – Dr.Sylvia Earle, HER DEEPNESS

Every once in a while the Universe gives birth to visionaries. Someone who can shine light on a space that until then the human species knew little about.
