Web of Life

What do you do when you retire from your twenty-odd year comfortable job?, or when your kids grow up and don’t need you anymore?, or when you have but just those few hours in the day when you want to do something different despite your crazy schedule? Or when time and tide are not on your side and most would consider your productive years are over?
……..Well, you put on your walking shoes, buy yourself your first pair of binoculars and a few field guides and make sure you pack a delicious breakfast ( a sure fire way of making eco-buddies) and of course carry along with you oodles of curious enthusiasm …and venture into the wilds!!

That’s what they did ……….
Meet Katie, Sheila , Usha, Shubadha, Hutoxi Sr., Hutoxi Jr., Renee….

They are also Founder members of the Save Rani Bagh Botanical Garden Action Committee (created to oppose the turning of a Historical Botanical Garden into a concrete amusement park.)
