Kaziranga

That’s a beauty of a place as mentioned here an year back after a trip to North east! what with Rhinos and so many species of birds, it is a great place to tour..
When we visited that last year we were told about the forest dept acting very responsibly and winning the locals by educating as well as distributing sops for not tampering the nature/forest.
But then we have politicos right? Its just not good people, ordinary citizens and some baddies, but this nasty villains called politicos ain’t? and so here we had 2 such guys (grt.. grt.. MLAs at that) who ganged up and trespassed in to the forest. The dutiful officer (rare variety that!) when tried to prevent these 2 goons & party from carrying out prohibited activities in the forest was beaten up.
A small solace is our visual media (prolly bcos this forest officer was awarded CNN IBN real hero of the year in the recent past) did cover this stupid act. Atleast bringing to light of such incidents esp at election times can infuse some sanity, hopefully.
