Decided and planned to go on a excursion to ‘Heart of India’. Beauty of India, Habitat of Tigers, State of forest , Home of Pandavs and Touch of nature belongs to it.
Loaded the car weighing 100 to 120 kg. Set the engine into auto mode and speed at 100km/hr ,hoping everyone comfortable with the drive.
10 am we initiated our journey and ended our drive around 4 to 4 30pm at my first halt. Firstly we reached the historic city of India, city of Laxmi bai called Jhansi ,it is located on the border of MP and UP.The Jhansi fort is renowned for its lady Manikarnika, other name of jhansi ki rani though it’s a ruined fort established since 1613 however the location and surroundings are breathtaking and history attached to this make it a remarkable monument and tourist attraction.
Next day again we started our journey at 10 a m with a flawless drive on Highways and speed at 100km /hr. Experienced Enroute the river Betwa and Kalpi joins Yamuna to meet mahasagar ,are surrounded by hills, forest, streams flowing through the steep ghatis, jungle trails and waving farms of mustard, wheat, rice allowing the nature to breathe openly . Long trails of even roads made our journey more relaxed and comfortable.
Finally at 4 30pm we reached our destination but next day early morning again we have to start for the jungle ride to satpura forest tiger reserve. The jungle of Satpura scattered around 1500sqkm through out the central India enclosed by Satpura hills. Drive of 3 to 4 hrs was very adventurous, excited and full of enthusiasm ingrhalt us into a Satpura Tiger reserve, located in the mouth of Denwa river with crystal clear water ,in addition to this the O2 level is at peak and pollution level is zero, we were in no mask zone to inhale the pure air. Took the steamer and cross the river to hire gypsy for safari. The gypsy ride through out the jungle was like a roller coaster to us .Entering through the dark bushes where the brightness of sunshine sieve- in between the trees and wandering through the branches of fine wood sagun trees.Amid safari we came across many spider web, ghost trees, almond trees ,tendu leave trees, mahua trees and cuddoplant almond trees (chironji). Ghost trees was an eye catcher, flattered it’s white colour branches as if telling not to harm or cut.Trees are mostly common with the trunks resemble to crocodile and cheetah skin, standing tall like a protector of the jungle. Eventually ride came to an end with a wonderful sight of ‘herd of deers’ standing to protect themselves from the wild dogs.
After 2 hour of adventurous ride our day ended with the Bonfire, listening melodious music- sitting beside the river in a mild chilled weather,midst of all this the sound of water hitting our ears like taal of beena .Must say jungle is the best place to escape from Covid 19
While returning back we saw chambal ghatis which was our Enroute attraction. These ghatis is renowned ghatis of India for most popular dacoit Phulan Devi. It’s bright yellow colour tillas in the middle of chambal river, where people residing depict the serenity phase of the lives .
