Most Beautiful Bird Sanctuaries in India.

“The bird is powered by its own life and by its own motivation”- A.P.J Abdul Kalam.

Owing to its varied geography, climate and presence of a long coastline, India is the dwelling house to several species of bird sanctuaries. Not only can you spot many regional birds here, but scores of migratory birds also make India their temporary habitat. Bird sanctuaries in India are therefore a hot spot for nature lovers and bird watchers.

The sanctuaries offer a dwelling place for these birds, but the true beauty is not in the habitat but in the inhabitants. Birds may be considered small creatures but they are majestic. Their colors, their build and their sounds. Every bird has a purpose and watching a bird in its natural element is a different experience altogether.

With more than 1200 species of avifauna present in India, it has forever been one of the most favored destinations for tourists. Among the most distinguished bird sanctuaries in India, the following are the most visited ones:

Nal Sarovar Bird Sanctuary, a well known sanctuary of Gujarat is a true bird paradise harboring over 250 bird species.   It is situated west of Ahmedabad near Sanand Village, in the Gujarat state of India. Mainly populated by migratory birds in winter and spring, it is the largest wetland bird sanctuary in Gujarat, and one of the largest in India. It harbors over 250 species of wetland birds. Ducks, geese, pelicans and flamingos are seen early in the morning and in the evening. The best time to visit is at sunrise, as the lake is peaceful, surrounded by a flock of birds in their element.

It’s something about the call of the birds, their numerous conversations that you don’t understand, but it still enthralls you. It’s a way to look at the species we share nature with, how they live, how they eat and its moments like these where we don’t feel that different from them.

Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary, also known as Pakshi Kashi of Karnataka  is the largest bird sanctuary in the Mandya District of the state of Karnataka in India. During the months of January and February, more than 30 species of birds are found and it is truly a breath taking sight. About 50 pelicans have made Ranganathittu their permanent home. During winter months, as many as 40,000 birds gather in this bird sanctuary and some birds travel from  as far as Siberia, Latin America and parts of north India.

Karnala Bird Sanctuary, is located in Panvel Taluka of Raigad District, outside Mumbai, India near Matheran and Karjat.The sanctuary is open to visitors from sunrise to sunset. The bird sanctuary is an admired destination for bird-watchers and hikers in the Mumbai area. The sanctuary provides a habitat for 150 species of resident and 37 species of migratory birds that visit the sanctuary during winter. Three rare birds, the ashy Minivet, three-toed kingfisher and Malabar Trogon have been sighted here. The Karnala fort is located on the top of the hill in the sanctuary and is a popular trek for hikers.

Shrimp Papad Roll Anyone?

The Chinese have spring rolls well, we just came up with the shrimp papad roll of your dreams. Crunchy papad filled with tender, juicy prawns, a kick of green chili with some tangy lime, finish it off with some juicy tomato and freshly grated coconut and you’ll find yourself going for seconds. It’s finger food without all the fat of Kentucky Fried Chicken! And it’s quick and easy to prepare.

All You Need

Shrimp -0.100 Gms

Onion- 0.06 Gms

Tomato- 0.04 Gms

Freshly grated coconut- 0.03 Gms

Garlic- 0.010 GMS

Ginger- 0.005 Gms

Chili powder-0.005 Gms

Coriander powder-0.005 Gms

Turmeric Powder- 0.004 Gms

Garam Masala            – 0.005 Gms

Salt- 0.002 Gms

Pepper-0.002 Gms

Oil- ml, For Frying

Papad- 6

Green chili- 0.003 Gms

Juice of 1 lemon

Coriander leaves- 0.003 Gms


The filling

  • Put the Shrimp in a bowl, remove the head and shell. Cut the shrimp down the back to remove the center vein.
  • After you have cleaned it, marinate with oil, turmeric powder, and lemon juice and keep aside.
  • Heat the oil in a pan and sauté the garlic, ginger and onions till they turn translucent.
  • Add the freshly grated coconut and sauté for another two minutes till it turns a light brown shade. This will add a toasty flavor to the dish. Add the chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and Garam Masala
  • Add the chopped shrimp and sauté for a few minutes until it turns lightly white or a blushing pink color. It is very easy to overcook shrimp, which only makes it taste rubbery. Make sure you do not keep it on the heat too long because it will be cooked a second time when it is deep fried.
  • Sprinkle over some coriander leaves, remove from heat and let it cool.

The roll-

  • Place each papad on a flat surface and brush with beaten egg. The beaten egg mixture will help seal the papad and ensure the mixture does not fall out.
  • Place the cooked shrimp mixture horizontally on one half of the papad and roll it up tightly to enclose the filling. Make sure you do not over fill the papad as there is a chance the mixture might burst out of the filling.
  • Press the edges of the papad to seal the ends.
  • Heat the oil. A good way to check if the oil is hot enough is by placing a wooden skewer in the oil, if bubbles form around the edges the oil is hot enough.
  • Carefully slide in the Shrimp papads in the hot oil and fry till golden and crispy.
  • Drain it on a tea towel to remove excess oil.
  • Season with salt and pepper while it’s still hot
  • Serve it with some tangy laccha pyaaz and refreshing mint chutney


Do be careful, especially when you are deep frying, people usually use a throwing motion, but that only causes the oil to spit. Hold the papad on one end and gently slide it into the oil to avoid any oil splattering.

There you have it, a tasty snack all in a matter of minutes.  This is a lovely evening time snack and for seafood lovers, it’s quite a delight.

The Bangalore We Don’t Always Experience

When we talk about the city of Bangalore, the first thing that comes to our mind is the high-tech industry which the city harbors. The one thing we often overlook is the cultural heritage of the city. So if you can look past the technology and the overly modern aspect of the city, then you’ll see a very different Bangalore.

Bangalore, now known as Bengaluru, is the capital city of Karnataka in South India. The weather in the city is always quite pleasant, just like the city itself – always bustling with life. As far as accommodation in Bangalore goes, budget hotels are some of the most popular amongst both, the business crowd and the travelers who are just looking to explore the city. Budget hotels near Bangalore Railway Station are the most sought after, considering the convenience of their location. Staying at hotels which offer you a good deal on accommodation, has its advantages; saving a lot of money is one of them, money which can be used to explore the city.

So what are some of the best places to visit in Bangalore?

Some of the most beautiful attractions you simply cannot miss are the breath-taking parks like the Lal Bagh, a botanical garden built in the 18th century. Another popular park is the Cubbon Park, which displays about 6000 species of trees and plants – definitely a heaven for the nature lovers.

Now when we talk about the historical heritage of Bangalore, there definitely isn’t a shortage of sights to visit. The Tipu Sultan’s Grand Summer palace, now a museum, is a marvelous display of Indo-Islamic architecture. Another historical monument that’s worth visiting is the Vidana Soudha. The enormous building was built in 1954, it has four domes and showcases neo-Dravidian architecture. It also houses the Legislative Chamber of the Karnataka Government and many other government departments.

The sights in Bangalore are one thing, but the food is quite a different experience. If it’s an English Breakfast that tickles your fancy, then Hole in the Wall is the place to be. The restaurant is located in Kormangala and features an indoor and outdoor sitting area; the place is really popular with the younger crowd. There are also many budget hotels in Kormangala, which makes it a lovely place to visit. If you’re a seafood lover then Vembanad which is located on the rooftop of The Paul. The restaurant serves up some amazing coastal dishes like Meen Nirachathu, Erachi Pathiri, Chemeen Muringakai Theeyal, Chemeen and Koonthal Ularthiyathu and Thalasseri Kozhi Curry. The décor of the restaurant is an authentic Kerala style and is a treat for anyone who loves the flavors of Kerala.

Bangalore is, without a doubt, a city with a perfect blend of the modern and cultural aspect. It’s clearly visible to anyone who takes the time to immerse themselves in the culture of the city. Opting to stay at hotels near majestic Bangalore is the best way to explore the city since you’ll get a really good deal on your reservation.
