While I was away...
…..the husband was at play! With birds. Birds with wings, I mean. He had come to drop us at the airport and pulled a sad face, saying how much he will miss the baby and me and how empty the house will seem. It is another thing that I never received a phone call from him after I reached Guwahati, my maternal home. Instead, whenever I called him, he would be out somewhere busy clicking birds. I would further get rattled when he reported spotting birds that I was dying to catch a glimpse of.
So, in other words, the husband had a gala time while I was busy working at home for office and looking after a cranky kid. He had gallivanted all around our favourite birding spots in Bangalore and driven as far as Maidenahalli/ Jayamangali Blackbuck Sanctuary as well. Around Bangalore, he visited: Cauvery Wildlife Sanctuary, Galibore, Mavathur lake, Valley School, Hoskote lake, Hessarghatta, Ragihalli, Hulimangala, Rampura lake and TG Halli. He had also gone to Manchanbele Dam and Thattekere but the areas were closed to public for reasons unknown.
Let’s make this a ‘While I was away’ series. Starting with Galibore. Enjoy the show!
