My guide at Bharatpur said in an excited voice to me “dekho [look] war headed geese.” At least that is what it sounded like to me. And I was quite confused as to why are they called war headed, I thought may be they are too quarrelsome. That flock was quite far away to make for a decent picture with my lens.
We then met this flock and he said again, they are called ‘war’ headed kyon ki sir per ‘war’ hai. And then it occurred to me that he was saying bar headed geese. But I have to say hats off to WWF (World Wildlife Fund) which trained the rickshaw pullers as guides and some of them like mine are so knowledgeable.
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
