Fascinating life of the Indian grey hornbill
Baljit Singh
When it is time to lay the first egg, the female hornbill enters the chosen nest-cavity and does not step out into daylight again, for as much as 75 days later. This is one of the most fascinating marvels of evolution, which provides the Indian Grey hornbill a fair chance both against predation and for successful annual procreation of its species.

Raw beauty of Bastar
Life in the tribal area of Bastar in Chhattisgarh takes us back to our roots. Malabika Sen writes about her unique experience
The travel bug that bites us ever so often, prompted us this time to pick up the railway time table to decide our destination. So from Vishakapatnam (Vizag), we hopped on to the slow train to Kirandul a track not often circuited by regular holidaymakers. Our final destination was Bastar district in Chhattisgarh.

V. Gangadhar

The heroine, a local doctor, had her own sense of nationalism and pride. They fell in love gradually, squabbled often, but finally got married. Did the marriage work out?
