BEHIND THE GLASS
Nature doctrine's is my Religion and Tiger & Wildlife Conservation is my life's only goal!
I am a Conservation Photojournalist, Founder and Editor of Jungle Rhythms. I communicate the emotions of the wildlife in pictures! I love to say their truth silently.
"I am committed towards saving the last few wild fragmented pristine habitats left in the Indian wilderness. Softly listening through tiger habitats across Indian jungles, I try to communicate ‘the voices of the jungle’ direct to the people through my photojournalism & films.
My Life Line: Please. Save my TIGERS!

Mohurli village is a forest village located on the boundary of the core zone of Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve, gateway to the real land of the tiger. Children here had been studying with the very basic facilities in the 'Zilla Parishad Uccha Prathamik Shala'. As,conservation of wildlife and forest lies solely on awareness and love for nature, we as a part of Jungle Rhythms, had the privilege of spending few key hours with our young brigade and instill in them, love of their own forests and their denizens. We conducted a very small art competition so that children could draw out their feelings about the forest and key species they love. Many drew the charismatic tiger, some the elegant peacock, some parrots and some the entire habitat they live in. It was such a lovely feeling to see how passionate they feel about their wild neighbors and how their sense deeply lies in co-existing harmoniously.
It would not have been possible without the efforts of our tigerman - Sanjay Petkule, respected teacher - Vitthal Tatghare and principal Ashwani madam who motivated the children to participate wholeheartedly during their happy enjoyable vacation.
The entire event was beautifully anchored by our honourable director - Pravin Kumar and great support from our dear collegues and friends - Ashutosh Dixit, Rajesh Krishnan and Rohit Malkani.
