Spiny Babbler At My Doorstep

We had early morning breakfast at the cottage in Upardang Gadi and then we followed the small trail that led us to the forest.

We heard the call of numerous birds at the either side of hill just before the edge of the forest. Our binoculars and telescope were positioned to focus on the birds to have a glimpse of those tiny but beautiful birds. Warblers, prinias and bulbuls were fidgeting under the bush singing melodious song.

School Art Program

When I asked little kids to make art of their choice on white paper with colors, they stared at me with puzzle look.

Santa sir told that they were doing the painting for the first time. Apart from pencil drawing of different figures in their copy, school kids in the remote hills are not familiar with painting with colors in large white sheet.
