Destination: Jungle Book

When Rudyard Kipling wrote his lovely little story featuring a man cub and wolves and a tiger and a hypnotising snake, he was actually talking about the Kanha National Park. Situated in the state of Madhya Pradesh, right in the heart of India. It’s a vast stretch of forest housing tigers, sloth bears, deer, monkeys and birds. However, there were no hypnotising pythons with jaws … Continue reading Destination: Jungle Book

Into The Night!

“The darkest nights produce the brightest stars.” Said John Green once. Night time has a different definition for everyone. For some, it is the end of the day, lights out, but for some others, it is the time they come alive. Alternatively, not everyone has night at the same time so that makes the issue even more twisted. The concept of ‘night’ maybe debated among us … Continue reading Into The Night!

Natural History Museum, London

Here’s some food for imagination: What if dinosaurs never went extinct? I mean, that would be a world where you’re on a nice little road trip down a winding, forested hill and suddenly, instead of a deer crossing the road, there’s a full grown Triceratops trotting across tar to the other side. Also, there would be no chance of scuba diving if our reptilian predecessors … Continue reading Natural History Museum, London

London In Museums!!!! Part 1

‘A museum is a place where one should lose one’s head.’  Said Renzo Piano once. And then he went and built The Shard. In truth, he was talking about Versailles or the French Revolution Section of any museum, where more than one person lost their head but right here, right now, we’re gonna cross the Channel and take the Tube to Tottenham Court Road and … Continue reading London In Museums!!!!
