Sharad Kumar Vats posted a topic in Your India imagesI have been doing safaris in India since 1990. But never thought i would get so lucky ever. It was December 2014, i was searching for Wild Elephants in Dudhwa National Park. Saw them at a distance of about 50 meters, it was late evening, dipping light, mist did not help, and i started to take photographs. Suddenly noticed some crouching movement between myself and the Elephants, Focussed and i could not believe my luck, a Tiger. he was stalking the baby elephant, maybe a month old, and the cow Elephant was very cautious. The Elephants would trumpet, try to scare the Tiger away, but he remained focussed, with a mission possessed, and did not leave his ground. Having watched the scene for over 20 minutes we had to leave the park as the safari time had come to a close. Left with a heavy and a praying heart that God save the baby. I left Dudhwa after 2 days, it was only after 7 days that my driver called and said, "' Sir the baby is safe, and i saw him today during the safari", was i releaved would be an understatement. Sharing the images here. Detailed article titled The Dudhwa Drama on below link www.naturesafariindia.com
Denizens of the Tiger Jungles Of India Just at the break of the dawn, a distant alarm call by a sambhar deer breaks the quietness and alerts the jungle folk of the presence of a striped predator. The tiger is on the prowl. The sharp senses of the guide picks up the clue and gets the jeep right there. After some tense moments appears the most majestic of all cats. You will never forget the awe of your first wild tiger encounter. Somewhere on a deserted road in the thick bamboo cluster a mother sloth bear returns to her lair with her young one. They were feeding on the wild fruits and termites the whole night and now rush to the cool of their den before the sun bakes the earth. In a maze of rocky hillocks a leopard, the most cunning of all predators sit on top and surveys the surroundings. At the very first hint of your presence it fades into the labyrinth. It has disappeared but still keeps an eye on you. Out in the grasslands the wild dogs, the whistling hunters have just had their kill and are now socializing with the pups. With their bellies full and the support of the tightly bonded pack of 17, there is little to worry about. Just as the sun goes down, one of the first creatures to appear is the agile jungle cats. It walks through the tall grass stretching every now and then and smells the presence of rodents. It stalks, jumps and fails yet again. probably feeling embarrassed, it gives you a last look and exits the scene as if nothing happened. Some of the best times I have lived are in the tiger jungles of India. it just never ceases to excite, stun and impress me. Below are just some glimpses of few moments spent with the 'Denizens of the Tiger Jungles of India' A tigress from the Central Indian Jungles of Tadoba The cub after a lot of hesitation finally walks up to us with his bold mother. Shot in Tadoba A sloth bear mother in the rush to reach back her lair, pauses and gives us one last look. From the jungles of Tadoba A leopard from the Wilds of Pench decides to fade away. The alpha male from a wild dog pack in Pench. The embarrassed jungle cats gives us the last look after a failed hunt before quietly exiting the scene. From the wild plateaus of Panna.

The caption might sound unrealistic, but the ground reality today is, that there are some serious efforts in the direction. The captioned statement is made by our new Environment Minister. Honestly, i am not sure if this will happen, but i quite like the confidence, intent, and positivity in his approach There are things beginning to happen on the ground, and i would like to believe the old saying, that, "We should aim for the moon, because even if we miss we will be among the stars". So, even if the population does not reach the intended double mark, but it will be at a good high.
