Hi Kshama,
Nice picture of this beautiful bird. I'm not sure if it is a Dusky eagle owl, as i think it is widespread in north actually.
I am wondering if it might be a brown fish owl (juv), but not sure.

It's a very mysterious owl. I think it might be a Fish Owl. I saw one a couple weeks ago on this site. It's nicely framed with nice soft light and wonderful green coloured leaves. A great ambient moment. TFS Trevor
