Urban forests

Lets look for nature ‘s  magic close to our homes.

I call them “Urban forests “.

Parks, little puddles, gardens, agricultural patches within cities are all urban forests.

A little terrace garden and a single tree are  the building blocks of urban forests.

Each human can experience  being  brushed by the Hand of God.

Its a fantastic time now as during the rains plants really grow, you can actually see the changes daily.

Sharing pictures of the wonderful and fabulous Sarus cranes near Noida in the NCR.

Can you imagine within 30 minutes of  Delhi near the Formula 1 Stadiums you can see these fabulous gifts of Nature.

They are the largest cranes (  Grus antigone)  going upto 6 ft or 180cm.

They lay eggs during the Monsoons and their mating dance is a sight to see.

In close proximity are the forest where EKLAVYA ( Mahabharta times) once  practiced Archery  and there are temples to date dedicated to Ashwaththama ( son of Dronacharya and cursed by Lord Krishna) .

This is just the tip of the iceberg of  FUN and JOY.

Want to form your groups or need help, send me a message.would love to help.

      1. I didn’t see anything that looks terrible. But I know what you mean. I’m republishing some articles I wrote 20 years ago and I certainly have had to even out some of the writing.
