Proud to be an Indian

Hi! Friends...!!!

"Independence day" is day after tomorrow. I just wanted to share an Incident... I met this french women working in France civil services (Like we have in India IAS) as we shared same interest and love for wildlife, we started speaking on the topic. She and her husband had just been to Africa and shared some pictures with me, I Appreciated the snaps she and her husband had taken and I shared my views that how mesmerizing the savannas are etc...

The reply that i got and the conversation then followed was like this...

Hi, Yes Southern Africa is an incredible place; But be carefull, once you went there you can't think anything else that going back again & again & again ...
I heard India was not that bad & I'd like to explore it too somedays ; I bet it's quite different from Paris & Europe !
Did you meet a lot of people threw the wildlife groups ?
Maybe We'll see your face in the future ?

Hi..Well...Definitely its completely different from Europe & paris...Its different world altogether..well, u see whole of europe,America, some eastern countries like japan, korea etc...have become quite similar to each other...they all have skyscrapers,lot of lights @ night..honkong is trying to b LA of south asia...In that India though has all the stuffs but maintains its uniqueness...

Allow me to let u introduce my country...Well we have the highest mountain picks on the north-east side...& sun sand dunes on the west side....Lovely beaches @ goa, kerela etc...forests @ western ghats with great no. of spp....Lovely Tea fields in the south...Mangroove forest @ mumbai,Tigers @ sunderban,khana etc...Lion @ gir...Cheetalh @kanha....In mumbai only we have more no. of butterfly than whole of the U.K...Then aquatic life @ sindhudurg, andaman.. Ohh I can go on & on...well a great traveler has said, "If u want to see India properly u got to spend at least 6 months..."
Of course i have not even talked about the festivals (Holi, Diwali etc) & palaces (Umed bhavan, Hawa mahal etc) & all....saving it for some other time.... I tried to give a sneak peek...
& yes..I adore...europe & paris...They r just awesomely beautiful...I got nothing against europe or paris...any country for that matter...I would like to explore them all....they all would have many things to offer..
See you...

Des parcs exceptionnels : le parc de Corbett : lieu de naissance du "Tiger Project", le parc de Kaziranga où résident les derniers rhinocéros indiens unicornes, et le parc de de Gir, dernier refuge du Lion d'Asie."
