A seating Chair Hidden in the Tree
On my visit to Satluj Park, Nangal; I came across this seating chair well hidden in the trees. I liked this seating arrangement because of its perfect location because there was always shade at this place and you were not clearly visible to others. To spend some peaceful time or for a romantic meeting, this chair can be rated as the best seating arrangement.

Beautiful Punjab Fields - Two Women Carrying a heavy load on the head

Tindan Wala Khoo (Persian Wheel Well) or Rehet still working (Punjab)

Here is a picture of Tindan Wala Khoo (Persian Wheel well) in working condition. Before the advent of electricity and diesel water pumps, it was common to see these wells across Punjab and in other parts of India. Today, it is very difficult to find a Tindan Wala Well in working condition. In Hindi, Tindan Wala Khoo is called Rehet. I saw such well before too, but that one was not in working condition. Rehets were mostly operated by animals; though, the Rahet which you see in the picture is made to be run by hands. I took this picture near Ropar Town of Punjab.

Samber (Female) Deer Picture from Kandi Forest (Punjab)

Here is a picture of Samber (Female) deer, which I took during my recent visit to a Kandi Forest area near Ropar town in Punjab. We can commonly see Samber deer in this forest. This was my first encounter with Samber deer in the forest. It is very enjoyable to see these animals in wild and open; then to see them in the zoo. I hope that we will learn to keep them in the wild then keeping them in zoos.

It is a culture in Punjab to put different kinds of statues at the top of the Home and sometimes, water tanks at the top of the home are given the shape of Airplane or other things.

An Indian Pond Heron Perfectly Hiding in Leaves till I spotted it at Harike Wetland (Punjab)

Here is a picture of an Indian Pond Heron Perfectly Hiding in Leaves till I spotted it at Harike Wetland (Punjab). These birds are very common; however, we hardly got a chance to see them because their camouflage so excellent that we can only notice them when we go very close to them. I hope you will also love to spot one in a nearby pond. The Harike is a wonderful wetland and we can witness many wonderful birds there.

Here is a picture of Oriental magpie-robin and his Shadow on the Wall. I was trying to take a picture of Oriental magpie-robin from the last few months; however, due to the shy nature of this bird, I was unable to take its pictures.
