Starting Wild India

A new year and a new wildlife production. This time, we are working on two of the three part series named Wild India for National Geographic. The theme is to showcase India’s diversity along with how wildlife copes with extreme conditions. One episode deals with the annual flood in Kaziranga, one on prey-predator dynamics at drying waterholes in central India and the last one is on extereme heat of Gujarat, highlighting lions and animals of the arid region of Kutch.

Just landed in Ahmeadabad and pigged out on amazing Gujarati food. Our first stop is Kutch and hope to give regular updates on the film.
