Article and Photo
If you follow my blog, you'll notice that all my posts are about me, presenting my (often flawed) opinion. This post is not about me. This post is to extend my gratitude to friends, family, colleagues and subscribers who have supported and encouraged me in my crazy (often obsessive) hobbies.

A couple of days ago I saw some of my photos in print for the first time, I thought I'd share these and my joy with you all.
A Bengali wildlife magazine (BON - means Forest in Bengali) kindly printed my Gir lion photos with a accompanying article based on my blog post. It appeared in the 3rd Edition.
Many thanks to Mr. Goutam Biswas, Mr Hironmoy Maiti and Mr. Sibbrata Basu for making this happen. The print quality is fabulous, and print articles on forests, conservation, birds, insects, endangered species and fauna with generous space for photos ( I cannot appreciate the writing since I cannot read Bengali, but those who have read it speak highly of the written content)
If you can read Bengali and are passionate about wildlife, this magazine is definitely for you. If you want to know how to subscribe to this magazine, please drop me a mail / comment and I will put you in touch with them. They dont have a website yet.

If you're wondering how my photos came to be printed in a Bengali magazine, the credit goes to Amalesh Dasgupta Uncle, who is our family friend, who befriended me one day as I was taking some photos on our terrace. Many many thanks uncle!
Many thanks also to my friend and colleague Ayan Kar who took the time to go through the Bengali article and read it for me :)
