[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One reaches the other end of chaur (grassland) at Dhikala, Corbett National Park after crossing Ramganga river. This is one of the branches of Ramganga river which finally converges into the Ramganga reservoir. After crossing it a dense forest begins (as shown in this photograph); we were told to be very careful perse active big cats very much around. This photograph is dedicated to Bob Shannon.

Dhikala is the most well known of the destinations in JIm Corbett National Park. It is located at the edge of the broad Patli Dun valley through which the Ramganga flows in numerous channels. Dhikala offers an awesome uninterrupted panoramic view of the valley, with the Kanda ridge in the backdrop. This sight appears all the more imposing from the watchtower near Dhikala.

A drive through the numerous trails through chaurs (grassland) is rewarded with sightings of wild elephants, chital, hog deer and numerous grassland bird species and raptors.

CORBETT PARK, WHERE "JUNLE LAW" PREVAILS: For Jim Corbett, the law of jungle was different from what civilian society thought it would be. In his words, the jungle law is “the law that is older and infinitely better than man made laws. The law that permits each individual to live his own life and anticipates no troubles or sorrows for the morrow”. He refers to the post second world war comments of three of the greatest British men in which they had criticised the enemy and accused them of introducing law of the jungle. Retorting to this he writes, “Had the creator made the same law for man as he has made for the jungle folk, there would be no wars for the strong man would have same considerations for the weak as is the established law of the Jungles”.

You are a man who may be smaller in stature but very big in the area of cardiac:-) In other words you have a big and most generous heart....which is why I love your work so much....Some of your work may unfortunately go un-noticed even more now....many have left the building...but such is life...and you don't mind because you do it for the glory of spirit which is back to why I love your images so much...and you do wear your heart on your sleeve!
