Two of the most basic requirements for life….as typified by this photograph:
We had finished the day’s birding at Ragihalli, and were wending our way homewards when I said, “So sad, we haven’t seen a single raptor yet, apart from the BLACK KITE.” So immediately this ORIENTAL HONEY BUZZARD flew out over the road near the first gate/watchtower…
In my last post, I had said, “I do want my mind to be like the lotus on the pond…even when moving because of the water currents, not losing its mooring, and looking calm and serene. Born in the filth and stagnation, it is yet so pristine and beautiful, and instead of looking at the mire in which it took birth, it looks up towards the sun, and draws its sustenance from above as well as from below.”
A huge fortune awaits the person who can show people how to completely control the rush of their thoughts….
And finally, all the birds of Thattekad….and some of the scenes we saw.
