Hello everyone,

At the end of the year, now it is the time to utilize some leave from my leave account, so without wasting much time i have booked ticket of flight on 10/12/2019 for 10 days to my beloved National Parks i.e. Jaldapara National Park & Gorumara National Park...This region of West Bengal is called Dooars (Dooar is a Bengali term, which means doors), there are 18 passages or gateways between the hills of Bhutan and the plains in India...

This region consists of many National Parks and Sanctuaries but these two are famous...last time when i had made a short visit to Gorumara National Park, the most remarkable view, i came across, was at the time of night safari at the Gorumara National Park, the forest land on both the side of the road was filled with fireflies which was truly incredible...I had tried to capture the moment but due to lack of proper gear and permission from the Forest Department, i failed in my attempt...So, keeping it in my mind, this time i have well equipped with the gears as well as taken earlier permission from the Department being a member of the Photographic Society of India...

I have also plan this time to give a short visit to Totopara (A region in the forest where Toto Tribe lives), according to the Census of 1991, the number of Toto population in India is 926...They live in 180 different houses which are constructed on the top of the trees in the forest to avoid unwanted conflict with wild creatures... Toto family is patrilocal in nature dominated by nuclear type...However, joint family is not rare...Monogamy is common form of marriage among the Toto but polygamy is not prohibited...If a man's wife dies, he may marry the deceased wife's younger sister, but a woman cannot marry her deceased husband's brother...On the death of a spouse, the husband or wife must remain single for twelve months before he or she is free to remarry...There are various ways of acquiring mates viz., (1) marriage by negotiation (Thulbehoea), (2) marriage by escape (Chor-behoea), (3) marriage by capture (Sambehoea) and (4) love marriage (Lamalami)...There is no custom of divorce among the Totos...Wikipedia...

There are so many other plans, i hope this time i shall get some good images...

Merry Christmas in advance to you all...
