In praise of Nature…

Nothing gives one more enthusiasm in the process of writing or researching than true appreciation… Over the last few years I have documented researched and presented data about the flora and fauna of the ‘Kalatope Wildlife Sanctuary’ located in Chamba district of Himachal. As a mark of blog appreciation, I was nominated for ‘The Versatile Blogger’ award by a fellow blogger…..
