I am no Henry David Thoreau but every pond of Haryana is a Walden Pond. There is no Ganga in Haryana, but every water irrigation channel is as sacred as the holy river to me. Nature dresses and undresses my countryside. Every outing is a new illustrated chapter of live birds. My aim is to write my experiences as a birdwatcher's journey in his neighbourhood. And this should be true for other states as well.

My village pond on 27 Sep 09
Water Lily flower, Pond Heron, Golden Oriole.
I do not know the name of the insect who made this. But this looks wonderful, gluing the thorns around.
A village boy collecting Water Lily flowers on the request of Dr Sudhir Oswal who wants to plant them in the water pond of his farm house near Badkhal Lake, Faridabad.
