“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 […]

“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” ― John Muir

You sometimes hear of ordinary work transcending to extraordinary. You start to explore the story of its creators. You realise if you begin to use words to describe this, it will still limit the magnitude of what’s been accomplished. You know that they have become a re-source, flowing directly from that Source, an invisible energy, […]

“Although we are in different boats you in your boat and we in our canoe we share the same river of life” – Chief Oren Lyons, Onandaga Nation

There is always one place in nature that brings out your true self, where you feel 100% aligned. For some of us it’s forests, to some its beaches/sea-side, some love heading to the mountains or to the hills, so on and so forth. It’s where your energies tune in completely, and the minute you step […]

The Lesser Known of Leakey’s Angels: Birute Galdikas

The entire year of 2009, I took a deep interest in learning about `primates’. The curiosity started with Ya Kwanza, the gorilla I had adopted at the Durrell Zoo. As I discovered how close the human DNA is to our large primates – gorillas, chimpanzees and orangutans (between 95%-98%), I saw `hope’ in us human […]
