Central Park after lockdown in the Monsoon has grown completely wild and beautiful 😍.
Most of the paths are covered by foliage.Zillions of frogs are roaring from the swamped undergrowth.
With restricted entry there are no walkers in sight. One lone birder with his camera was being harassed by the flocks of birds 🐦in revenge for earlier intrusions now that the tables are turned
We could have been in dooars or north andamans or rawanda and not the heart of Kolkata. The snake that slithered away added to the feeling
Entry is restricted to a few hours only, if we produce certification for double vaccination. Being Bengali , we are a little extra conscious of our rights, and a gentleman was vociferously arguing with the poor guards that regulation says vaccination, not mask, and thus he refused to put on his mask. It was a matter of principle after all.
The forest guards in raincoat and masks looked like ww1 soldiers in gas masks, or from some dystopian sci fi film
My favorite morning walk location is open at last
