Those are black necked cranes which breed around Tibetan plateau and can be found across India mainly in the northern part especially.

Guess the "S/F" Tag will soon disappear with the status conversion but pretty good job slotting in 4 different languages into the name board.

A trip report to the Mecca of RF's
The Preparation :
Started January 2013 onwards
This has been a trip which I wanted to do for a very long time and for some very known reasons, I was never able to do this at all for almost 5 years. This year come what may, this trip will happen and that is how I prepared myself. This also turned out to be a nice excuse to get all the things that I wanted for a long time. Well you will know that this is an overkill if you see my list below
1. Nice Swiss Champ Knife with 32 functions. Is it really needed ?
2. Super Fenix Flashlight with 650 lumens output (It lit an entire 15 x 12 room like a fresh and new tubelight). Is this really needed ?
In addition to these, I got high end rainwear, footwear, backpack and a whole lot of things which in reality is not an absolute necessity, but well make hay while the sun shines.
Aug 1 2013 :
Got my salary a day ago, but the excitement apparently does not seem to stem from that fact. 24 hrs to start for my long awaited trip, lots of undecided loose ends. We will stay at DDS, but where ? no idea. No idea if we will trek from CLR to DDS. No idea if we will stay at DDS. No idea if we will get a lift to Kulem. Oh no.. forget trek, shall we get down at DDS instead of CLR. Lots of questions, no answers. Well we decided to hell with all, lets all just go home and pack and get ready. It was a hectic day and lots of stuff to buy. We needed food for 2 days and after lots of deliberation, decided that 1 day stock should be enough. Your sub conscious always tells you .. "Arrey Bhai.. Just in case.." and you always sub consciously listen to the sub conscious and ended up getting food that would last a family for an entire week, some of which are still at home !!.
2 hrs of shopping and 1 hr of planning, I ended up with a list like this. Clothes, Cosmetics, SLR, Point and shoot, Charger for SLR, Charger for P&S, Cell phone and charger, Extra batteries for SLR and P&S, extra SD cards, Rain Jacket, Rain trousers, Ankle shoes, regular shoes / sandal, blanket, sleeping bag, medicines & first aid, flashlight, swiss knife, loads of food for 2 days, cooking utensil and well what not. Packed them all and found that I would need one more person to carry it for me. So off goes a lot of stuff and somehow managed to pack them all nicely into a single backpack. What really amuses me is that we pack so perfectly and once you start taking out things from your backpack, you find no place to put them back in. Somebody needs a lesson on free energy here ;)
It is 10PM now and all set. I want to sleep. I am desperate to sleep and in the excitement I did sleep around 4 am, when my body could take no more. Still those unanswered questions remained unanswered. Some wild instinct told me it will all fall in place. With that in mind, my body slowly took over my brain and dozed me off to a much needed rest in preparation for an exciting 2 days. Stay tuned for more
To be continued ...

Always fun to put the boys in the wagon and walk a few blocks to the tracks to see a train go by. Seeing how big my oldest is in the wagon reminds me that we need to make these memories while we can. Thanks to the conductor for the big wave!

If close to 100 Berths are available in a given class,you are DEAD CERTAIN to get a preferred Berth of your choice,say for example Side Lower.That's not to say that you won't get a SLB if only 20 - 30 berths are left but your chances are close to 100 percentile if Berth availability is more in getting a specific berth with a small request/pleading ;)) at the time of booking at PRS which i keep reiterating and i always end up getting a SL :) Good luck.
