One cold afternoon, as we stopped our gypsy on a high ground, to wait patiently for those beautiful stripes to appear out of the jungles and walk graciously towards the waterhole right below the hillock, we suddenly became aware of the deafening sounds!!
But luckily, it wasn't that annoying urban sound that drives us mad, gives us headaches and ruins our health. This was the variety that soothes our senses, and calms our soul...chirping of hundreds of birds... different species and different colors. They came in a group out of the blue as if they wanted to cheer us up for their naughty tiger friend had decided to remain shy that day. And cheer us up they did with their song and dance, putting up a show for us on a hot afternoon.
