It was nice to see many youngsters taking part in the trail.It was also nice to see MBK joining us. Its always very enriching to spend time with experts like him, as even on a brief meeting one can learn so much.
Someone in the group had also spotted a woodpecker and had the picture for the same.Its a request to pl. confirm that id .
I am ever thankful to Swami Vishnumayanadanji for letting us all enjoy the beautiful forest he has created around the mission school and beyond and also thank him for his hospitality as almost all of us could relish the hot cup of tea, lovely breakfast and few of us could even enjoy the tasty lunch.
