Visiting deep inside the Sundarbans & spent days with Bawali - Episode #11

in #photography6 years ago

In the last October-November I visited Sundarbans, the world's one of the largest mangrove forest. It was also declared as world heritage site by UNESCO in 1997. In this forest a numerous wildlife species exist - birds, reptiles, fishes, amphibians and also the king of the forest "Royal Bengal Tiger". The ganges dolphins & crocodiles are also living in the canals of Sundarbans. Chital is a one kind of spotted deer living in this forest. The rural life in the area of this coastal forest is also very attractive. They basically maintain their lives by collecting honey, woods and fishes. In the native language they are called as Bawali. I spent some days with them. Here I share some of my tour photographs of Sundarbans and Bawali --

This is a photograph of "Gunin". Every Bawali team has their own "Gunin" before starting journey to the jungle. Who is "Gunin" ? Gunin is one kind of wizard. Bawalis believe that their "Gunin" can protect them from any danger (specially dangers from Tiger) during collecting honey, woods & fishes in Sundarbans.

Nice pics
It seems like the place is a haven . Sometimes I wounder if living in the forest would be cool. There will be no worries and one can live off the land. It might have its own challenges like no electricity , tap water and internet.
I think living there would be a great stress relieve .You will be able to enjoy the fresh air . Each day can be an adventure.

Jungle life is always attractive, but, we can't live for a very long time there.......
Thank you :)
