Hey everyone,This is Ashish. I was born and brought up in a small City and after my Studies I got an industrial job, sounds dull, but but but the most beautiful thing happened to me was my workplace was surrounded by huge jungle. My residential quarter was just few hundred metres away from the dense forest. So I started soaking up the nature and observing animals. We used to see snakes, bear, foxes, Hyena, and so many reptiles,bugs and other beautiful species. I really started to feel the love for nature and animals. I really want to confess, if my x-bosses are reading this, tht we friends used to pack our food during lunch time and used to go to the forest to have our food. Most of our Sundays holidays and even after-job time were spent in the jungles, small picnics to near by water falls and small road trips. Even most of our night parties venue was near by hill top in the middle of the jungle. In few of our random night clicks framed some beautiful snakes as well. feeling nostalgic!!!
So when I decided to leave my job, the most difficult part was... yes I didn’t want to leave behind the nature and animals.
When we came back to my home city, I had a flat in the middle of the city. Me and Divya didn’t want to shift there and everyone else was like, are you mad who leaves the place like this and a nice property and all blah blah.... after few days we managed to find our dream place in outskirts of the city, ground floor flat surrounded by the place for gardening.
We started to create our small own little jungle all around and after 4 years managed to get some beautiful birds and bugs and snakes around .me and Divya feel really fortunate to found this beautiful place. Now living with our 8 dog - kids, and I am part of the NGO of the snake helpline. People say it’s far from the city , but just tell me one thing can you buy Nature ? You can buy a flat worth millions but can you buy the surroundings, can you invite those birds and animals by spending money?? .....
So yes not able to match the same jungle feeling but now our little garden gives us pleasure, and oxygen to survive in the city . It’s our gardening day friends.Happy Sunday everyone !
