Udaipur Man and His Wild Friends

The old man feeds the animals twice a day. They know when to expect him and he never lets them down. Spotted Deer, Wild Boar, Pigeons, Indian Peacocks, they are all there. The wildlife sanctuary on Lake Pichola, Udaipur, India where the old man has worked for over forty years was once a hunting ground for tigers and wild boar. The Sarus Crane, tallest of the flying birds was abundant, now it is a species at risk. How things have changed yet man’s desire to relate to wildlife remains. Man and Nature.

    Do you have any contact information, or address, or place of work for Mr. Singh or the wall painting you picture him with? The painting is very similar to one I am writing about that was painted back in the 1880s, and I would love to find out more about this painting too!
