The Elephants are back

   Posted by: admin   in Wild Life

So it finally happened again this year – 5th year in a row.  The elephants are back up here in my neighbours plot just below Acres Wild.  They skirted out place and went up to UPASI which is the tea organisation here.

There are 3 of them.  Would be interesting to check out if it is the same family that first came here in 2006.  Then they certainly have remembered and marked this place to visit each year.

The forest officers, I think, are trying to send them off down again.  This time I am a little concerned as we have made many more structures like gazebos and our vegetable fencing etc.  Have noticed they like to excercise  by pulling down anything standing vertical 🙂

Please lie down then asap!!

Joking aside, this sounds like interesting news. Looking forward to seeing pics, if you get to catch some of them.

How happy you must be to be in such an exciting place.

Hi, Mansoor!

Coming to your site feels like: I’m in a crowded Bombay office on a hot, humid day and I open a window – to find myself looking out on a verdant mountainside! 🙂

Great to know that you’ve formally started the farmstay. All the best for it!

And oh yes, please do lie down when the elephants come around again! 🙂
