Travel India Passionate Romantic Destinations Lakshmi Sharath

Seductive Wilderness: Billigiri Rangaswamy Temple Wildlife Sanctuary
The Idle Schoolboy whistles the moment I enter the forest, almost a sign of appreciation for the carpet of green spread out before me. My tryst with BRT, as it is known among nature-lovers, started almost a decade ago when I spotted my first sloth bear in the wild. But in this tiger reserve, it is the Schoolboy or the Malabar Whistling Thrush that has always made me feel special. I would recommend BRT as the destination if your calling is to go and get wild!
