    This one portrays the gigantic size better in my opinion. Truly a reminder of the era of the "ruling reptiles". It looks like you had a tough time composing it from the moving boat, what was the focal length used?

    'Ripeness is all...' The photo brings to my mind a sense of 'calmness' and 'resignation', but a resignation coming not out of a feel of helplessness but through contentment.This giant sits quietly,as if trying to say that oft-quoted line--'I am the monarch of all I survey...'

    Thanks for sharing sir,

    Indranil,
    You seem to have inherited some of the writing skills of your dad. You should cultivate it.

    I had read the poem Bandira atma katha during my school days in Oriya. Though, later on I read it in english as The Solitude of Alexander Selkirk, the oriya version always comes to my mind.

    In Sundarbans, looking at the vastness of the landscape, where the sky and see appeared to meet, the same quote flashed across my mind "I am the monarch of all I survey" (Oriya version: dekhaee netra jaha chau digara, se sarbara aatai mun adhiswara).

    However, immediately, I felt that it was megalomania. I am just a speck in this vast landscape, and nature is slowly unfolding its grandeur infront of me. The unseen shark, the massive crocodile, the mysterious tiger which didn't bless us with its appearance, the powerful storm... all I felt was being a part of it. There was neither a feeling of fear, nor a feeling of possession. I feel blessed living in this country.
