Himalayas - 266 ...

... on our way back
from the Medical Camp
... we usually stop
at a spot ... on
the Highway ... from
where one can see
perennial snow-bound
peaks of Himalayas ...

... as well as peep
into the forest for
any chance sighting ...

That day .. we couldn't
see much and were
turning to get back
when a very fair
... hazel-eyed middle
aged man approached us ...

He must have been
there watching us ...
but somehow we had
failed to notice him ...

You like to see some
Jungle fowl ! ... was
his query ...
... drive down a diversion
going deeper into
the forest ... and
you will see ... and
many more birds, too ...

Without a moment's
delay we were on to
the narrow road ... going
deeper into the high
altitude jungle ... full of
sonorous calls ...
the sine-qua-non
of spring
... and
barely a km and half
into it ... we found
this ...
