Hello guys! and welcome to my blog,
Hope everything is fine at your end! These few days have been a roller coaster of my life, my Mother had to go under the knife yet again and this time for Gall Bladder stone.So I had to rush to Kolkata,leaving my work behind.I came back to Dimapur yesterday after my Mother got home safely from hospital.My blog was taken a back seat due to this medical emergency,but now that everything has settled down I’m back with an another compelling post.
It has been raining like hell all over North East and Dimapur is no exception. It is really impeding my work because I can’t able to be on schedule,this rain is delaying everything.Few days in kolkata reminded me everything I have ever hated about a city life! you know exactly what I’m talking about yes!pollution, rat race, crowd and what not.
So,after all these above said atrocities I faced in Kolkata I was in no mood to visit some place similar. I needed a break and peace which Mother nature could only provide me.
As a kid I always enjoyed visiting places where I could actually feel like connected to the flora and fauna of our ecosystem. I don’t know but places like this take me back to the primitive or stone age era when humans and animals live together on this earth without any boundary. The zoological park of Dimapur was always on my to-visit list but I would not know that the visit would get so early.
I started to get that jungle safari sort of vibes all over again. the park is located about 6 Km away from the main town and with that short notice I could not arrange any vehicle for my travel so I had to go for autorikshaw which is lifeline of Dimapur as I could see.It took me more than an hour to reach the park and 300 INR.
Here is a small suggestion do not opt for autorikshaw as I did because this place is in the outskirt of the city and you could hardly get any public sort of communication.I suffered because no one was there to tell me but don’t worry I’m here for you,book a cab in advance so that everything gets easier and better.
This park is colossal with a total area of 176 ha. inaugurated on 28th of Aug,2008 the main objective of the Zoological park in Nagaland is to instill and evolve a sence of tender towards the immense flora and fauna blessed by the Mother nature to this beautiful place on earth.And also to promote awareness and educate the people of the state to conserve and embrace the gift of nature.
The zoological park is a place where you can find wildlife(tiger, elephant,lion,crocodiles,monkey,bear etc) that is flora and fauna together housed in an enclosure with enormous amount of beautiful trees surround all over in order to make them feel like home.It actually helps us to maintain ecological balance and with large number of trees rainfall is sorted.
It is our duty to conserve endangered species and no place is better than a park to protect the animals and make them feel like home.You can definitely shoot but not with a gun only with a camera.period.
Now, coming to this park the topography of the area is like gentle hills at altitude or a rolling plateau with low-lying area suitable for many species like birds.The forest like habitat is making it acceptable for Hornbills which are the most gigantic of forest birds and spectacular of all.They also play a great role in forrest ecosystem.You can find their species here.
The park is so big that I could not finish it in a single visit and as I mentioned above about the climatic condition of this place yes you guessed it right! it started raining soon after an hour of my visit and that stumbled and jeopardized my photographs,mood and everything I planed.So this post is about half of the area and I’ll cover the whole in another post.And please forgive me for the pictures I’m bringing to you because the rain ruined everything and also I promise to take good pictures on my next visit to the park.
Here comes the mighty cat…
That’s all I got from my first visit because soon after it started raining and I was forced to stay in for nearly 2 hrs.And, when it stopped it was the time for the park to get closed.But, there are many more things to see and which, I’ll definitely accomplish in my next visit.
What I wore(how I wore my fringe pant part-2)
For a safari(which I felt all the time that this is not a park but a jungle)like this one will definitely follow the rules and go for some khakis,browns and greens in order to stay neutral and blend in with the surrounding.But, I’m here to defy this because it is already green everywhere why go for more rather stand out.
So I chose this multicolored stripes top because
- It is stripes( all stripes are my weakness)
- Off-shoulder(I love this trend and summer is all about it)
- In order to add color some color
And,for the pant I styled it previously in a different way( if u have read it you would know) so i tried in a new way this time and merge my this post with the part-2 of the “Denim Fringe Pant”.
Off-shoulder and Denim Fringe Pant combo, which I feel looks perfect together.But, will you please tell me(in the comment section) whether it is cool or just like every other look?.Your suggestion is really appreciable.I’ll be waiting.
I did not accessories much this time but a bandana( my fav of all accessories).
