At Wildscreen

I’ve been at Wildscreen Festival this whole week and last evening my long time dream came true. I finally met David Attenborough in person and even managed to show some of my photographs to him. Pretty much everyone related to wildlife in some way or the other is here and today is the last day of the festival. More soon …

    Very impressive Kalyan! You met two of my idols – Jane Goodall and now Sir Attenborough. I do recollect Jane G asking you join her program. What was Attenbouroughs reaction to your photographs? I bet it was positive.

    I do recollect Attenborough making this comment few years ago in response to George W.
    “I don’t think whole populations are villainous, but Americans are just extraordinarily unaware of all kinds of things. If you live in the middle of that vast continent, with apparently everything your heart could wish for just because you were born there, then why worry? […] If people lose knowledge, sympathy and understanding of the natural world, they’re going to mistreat it and will not ask their politicians to care for it.”

    I wonder what his reaction would be to Miss Caribou Barbie’s theory of – “God hugging us closely” 🙂
    Sorry for going off topic but couldn’t help myself.

    It was really wonderful. His naturalist side kicked in and took it as a challenge to identify some of the birds and mammals that I was showing him
