Spotted Deer, Also, known as Chital is a deer found in the Indian subcontinent.The species is sexually dimorphic: males are larger than females, and antlers are present only on males. The upper parts are golden to rufous, completely covered in white spots. The abdomen, rump, throat, insides of legs, ears and tail are all white. The antlers, three-pronged, are nearly 1 metre (3.3 ft) long.

Chital are active throughout the day. In the summer, time is spent in rest under shade and the sun’s glare is avoided if the temperature reaches 80 °F (27 °C); activity peaks as dusk approaches. As days grow cooler, foraging begins before sunrise and peaks by early morning.

Barking Deer

Also, known as the Indian Muntjac, a common deer species in South and Southeast Asia.

It has soft, short, brownish or greyish hair, sometimes with creamy markings. This species is omnivorous, feeding on grass, fruits, shoots, seeds, birds’ eggs as well as small animals. It sometimes displays even scavenging behavior, feeding on carrion. It gives calls similar to barking, usually upon sensing a predator.

The male Indian muntjac has small, unbranched antlers which grow to about 15 centimeters (5.9 in) in length. The antlers grow annually from a bony stalk on the top of the head. Males are extremely territorial and—despite their diminutive size—can be quite fierce. They will fight each other for territory using their antlers or their (more dangerous) tusk-like upper canine teeth, and can even defend themselves against certain predators such as dogs.

They never wander far from water. Also, males usually have their own territory, which may overlap the territories of a few females but not of another male.

 

 

Gumsuda

Sharing One Of my Poem I had written may b in 2004..(Ghazals Effect)

GUMSUDA HO GAYE THE HUM KAHIN,

DHONDE SE BHI NA MILE HUM KAHIN.

NA JANE KAHA KHO GAYE THE HUM.

DIL MEIN THI USKI YAAD HARDUM.

 

TANHAYI MEIN GUM,

ZINDIGI SE THORA THA HUMNE NATA.

PATA NA THA KAISE HAI GUM BANTA JATA.

KHUDA NE INSAAN KO KYUN BANAYA

BANAYA BHI TO YE DIL KYUN BANAYA.

ZINDIGI MEIN KHUSHI AUR

GUM KA EHESAASH KYUN DILAYA.

 

AYE KHUDA KHAHAN JAUN

DOSTO NE DOSTI KA NATA THORA

GUM NE MERA SAATH JORA

SOOCHA NA THA YE DIN BHI AYEGA,

JAB USKA BHI SAATH CHHUT GAYEGA.

SAACH BOLNA KOI GUNAH TO NAHI,

KALYUG HAI YE MEINE SOOCHA HI NAHI.

AYE KHUDA, MUJHE GUM DEKAR KYA PAYA.

TORKAR DIL MERA KYA TUJHE MAZZA AYA?

PATA HAI IS GUM NE MUJHE BAHUT TARPAYA

EK JINDA LAASH BANAYA.

 

BAS GUMSUDA HO GAYE THE HUM KAHIN

DHONDE SE BHI NA MILE HUM KAHIN

NA JANE KAHA KHO GAYE THE HUM

DIL MEIN THI USKI YAAD HARDAM.

Trip to Diveagar

We started from pune at 7:30 a.m. on 22nd Sept 2016.I was travelling with my Family-My Mom and Dad, My Hubby and my 21 month old boy.We decided to take the Tahmini Ghat Route as that’s the fastest route.It was drizzling on and off.

Till Mulshi the roads are good except for some bad patches after paud Village.But once the Ghat Started Wooh!!! The roads are tooooo bad…Big Big Potholes.I was really feeling bad for my car..Though the scenery was awesome..Beautiful Waterfalls,beautiful climate,Whatelse One can expect….

Bad Roads …No not again.. was ruining our good and happy mood.Many Big Heavy Vehicles had a breakdown…The Ghat Road Stretches around 45 kms,though there are no sharp turns but the ST buses are the matter of worry.As, there was a forecast of very heavy rainfall,we did not face it on the Ghat but mostly had Zero Visibility due to clouds and Driving was very risky, we could not even see 20 meters beyond …

The above Picture was taken when we halted for sometime time as we couldnot see due to heavy fog..Can u see our car on the other side of the road..

Well,You’ll see Hotel Orchard Cafe on your right and you know Tahmini Ghat is done and you will be relieved to drive on good good at least for few kms. The SH Roads are in good Condition.Again Once you reach the Mhasala Road the roads are bad..And You have to cross another Ghat before you reach Diveagar..It took around 5 and a half  hours to reach Diveagar..We had booked hotel at Hotel Exotica Beach Resort…I was a superb Stay there.

The beach was secluded but not that clean..The Water was blackish and dirty..No Stalls,No maintenance..You will find water sports..

Another disappointment was the Suvarn Ganesh Mandir in Diveagar..I mean, is this a joke..There is no maintenance.,no proper flooring, water dripping down..Only a photo hung on the wall of Suvarna Ganesh..

Overall, a much hyped place in konkan..

Keep your city Clean….
