‘Jungle Book’ in the forest
Childhood days are always so pure and innocent where we imagine fantasy themes and want them in real life. Many of us would have dreamt to become ‘Mowgli’ for few days and stay in jungle. The exciting forest, Mowgli’s friends and his love for them was so divine. He would love to play with them whole day while they would save him from any adventure. Although, it is not possible to imitate Mowgli in real life, we can certainly live his life for few hours by visiting our jungles. The forests in India have preserved and maintained well by the authorities where isolation of certain species ensure their well-being in an appropriate habitat.
Either in the form of zoos, park or sanctuaries, these animal surroundings are open for tourists viewings. Photographers, wildlife enthusiasts, young and old look forward to safaris.
