Sundarbans That Will Turn Your World Upside Down

Sundarbans began in the English literature book of 7th Grade

Sounds a little corny from a listener’s perspective, but that is how it is. Being a non-traveler till the age of 19, I was never into exploring the nature. My family was already acquainted with the wonders of Sundarbans (Sundorbon, as they say, it). Before my mangrove forest quest, I had already begun travelling around the country on work related issues. Like any typical homesick person, even I never thought of considering Sundarbans as a trip to get away from the workload. Nevertheless, I definitely needed a push and my beloved mother was the one convincing me for the solo trip.Sounds a little corny from a listener’s perspective, but that is how it is.

So, I started off my journey on a weekend to get back my Monday. Now the return trip was too fascinating until I actually witnessed Sundarbans. Let’s not jump to the conclusion, though. I rented a car for my travel for the very reason that I can have the liberty to move around. I started off from my home, Kolkata, at about 7 in the morning. Without stopping, I reached my first destination at a place called Namkhana which is said to be the only land way to reach the Sundarbans. It was in the month of December, so the climate was in the favour of my travel. The rest of the journey to Sundarbans lasted for about 4 more hours considering the bad roadways. By this time, I was famished and definitely wanted to try out some Bangla Cuisines. I have a peeve of looking for extra hygiene which I did not find in the local food stalls. That is one disappointment I had, which might not be a problem for everyone.

 The first day had already started to get boring, but I wanted to make the most of it. Now, this is the part where my perception changed completely. I was amazed to find so much to look out for at the core areas of Sundarbans. I had recently developed the urge to click photographs, so it went like a feast for me. I had to engage myself somewhere by the end of the day and I feel good about myself that I used the last of my time at the Sajnekhali Sanctuary. Honestly, I do not know if my GK was poor or I was actually witnessing birds and plantation that I have never heard of before. Anyway, the first day took a great pace by the end. The Sunday was stacked for me, with the exploration of The Dublar Char Island and Hiron point and finally ending at a feeble exploration of the Wild Safari. The reason I loved the Sunday program is because I had never seen the nature in its truest form. Adding to the fascination, I was lucky enough to spot the royal Bengal tiger along with some other endangered species that lift Sundarbans’ charm.

Like all good things come to end, I had to come back as well. I came back with the hope to return one day. But for now, the memories would be cherished until next time.
