Kabini Blog

Kabini! An ancient land molded by modernity but also strangely left untouched by it. A land of myths, legends, history and pristine wilderness. A place where sages were born and mythical characters sought and found refuge. In these jungles, life beats to the rhythms of nature who unfolds her secrets one page at a time. The secret to success in this venerable realm is an ability to wait and watch.

In this Blog on Kabini we take you on a long and leisurely journey through this ancient land which has been witness to mainstream and tribal synergy with a dash of colonial legacy thrown in for good measure. Explore the jungle which has its share of thrills and spills punctuated with long intervals of calm. As fellow travelers we invite you to share your own experiences of this journey of discovery.

A Fight to the Finish!

Vikram Nanjappa

I have written a series of posts about the extraordinary bond that exists between a mother and her offspring in the wild. Most often this special bond is not visible to the casual observer, especially in the case of the deer family, as it is quite challenging to read any emotion into their faces. However,…
