Conservation India...

A very enjoyable trip to Gir (even though often fraught wich too much eventfulness for my liking...being slapped on the head by an arrogant guard at the Somnath temple, and nearly missing our flight back to Bangalore because of an incompetent cab driver....made sure I could just about find time to check my email, and not post anything to LJ...but a recent photo of mine is on the Conservation India photo gallery (I don't know if they accept all photos or not)..

to see it.

Will be uploading photos of the Gir trip soon....those of you who like lions and other mammals...and some birds...stand by!

Steps and seat....


What scenes have these steps seen?
Who are the people who've sat upon that seat?
How many have rested their backs there?
On the steps, how many feet?

How many suns have cast their light
Upon the steps and the seat?
How many misty winter mornings?
How much of summer heat?

How many quarrels or scoldings?
How many newspapers unfurled?
How many people have used seat and steps
To get away for a while from the world?
