My caricature, my family and the artist Harish.
It was one of the busiest day after 1st of September when I climbed up this tree. Around 170 people from schools, colleges, NGO’s, came to visit me.Among them was an artist and with his students he made a few caricatures and paintings for Junglistan.
The most important visitors was my family (mom, dad, brother and sister-in-law). My mom was asked by the crowd about how she feels about her son living on a tree for a month. When she spoke she came out notches higher in inspiring the audience.
After the hustle bustle of the previous day, this day was fairly quite. Spotting small creatures is still a big deal for us. I don’t know how we will react when we finally see something big.
Junglistan Nivas has become the latest ‘hang-out’ for the children from the near by village. The swing made under the tree house is a big draw for the local kinds who walk a minimum 2 kms to come and have a good time.
Around 70 junior college students landed up in the morning to find out how coal mining is destroying the tiger habitat. We had a long discussion and where I explained what all coal mining can possibly destroy.
Time’s moving really fast in the forests and October’s almost here. Sign the petition if you haven’t already.
I’ll leave you with a fun picture.This photo was taken by a 10 year old Rohit from Bhatadi village.
