Reeta had asked me to post a favourite picture on my blog..I couldnt select one, there were so many – so I have modified the tag and posted a video – my first on my blog – a glimpse of an elephant in the wild in Masinagudi near Mudhumalai Wild life Sanctuary – nothing dramatic , but I was excited nevertheless .

Its my turn to tag and as a rule, I do not force please feel free to post your favorite picture or video or anything that interests you

    Masinagudi….sounds so much like Malgudi!!.. nice video. Is it really a wild elephant? I’ve been to kerala, periyar sanctuary but cud see only tamed elephants. It is kind of exciting when they aren’t tamed…

    Being in the wilderness watching wild animals in their natural habitat is sheer pleasure. This video made me recall my adventures in the Bandhavgarh National Park. Thank you for sharing a great video. 🙂
