 Hi,

 We  in  Bangalore  are  hard  workers.  We  are  already  on  it.
 We  want  all  the  roads  and  I  mean  all,   in  Bangalore  to  resemble  the  rush  hour  in  dadar.
 We  have  already  achieved  considerable  success,  what  with  Azim  premji,  Narayan  Murthy  etc  threatening  to  shift  their  business  elsewhere.
 
 But  we  in  Bangalore  are  a  modest  lot  and  don't  like  to  boast.  Chuckle   Chuckle  
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 Fast  local  from  Ambarnath  on  platform  #5  is  the  most  challenging  one.   Very Happy  
 
 I  have  seen  many  irked  commuters  pushed  inside  and  forced  to  get  down  at  Thane,  wanting  to  get  down  one  stop  before.   ROFL

 Well,
 
 All  arguments  aside,  it  is  difficult  to  beat  a  modern  metropolis  having  nearly  50  mammal  species  including  big  game  like  Leopard,  barking  deer,  crocodiles  and  Sambar  within  municipal  limits.  Very Happy
 
 @Banjohead  -  Sorry,  I  was  not  planning  to  do  a  listing  of  fauna  of  the  park  but  since  you  ask  -  yes,  plenty  of  snakes  -  I  have  personally  seen  cobras,  rat  snakes,  russels  viper,  green  vine  snakes,  checkered  and  striped  keelbacks,  python  most  of  which  can  be  found  even  in  larger  cities  in  India.  Others  have  reported  a  much  larger  variety.  Lycodon  can  probably  elaborate  on  the  more  exotic  ones  found  there.  Apart  from  this  a  huge  variety  of  birds  -  we  have  clocked  nearly  350+  species  in  and  around  Mumbai.
 
 @Shankar:  I'll  soon  have  you  getting  even  more  nostalgic  when  I  put  up  some  pics  of  a  fishing  trip  I  did  in  your  old  stomping  grounds...  Wink
 
 Regards,
 Venkat

 Hi,
 
 Rules  of  Battle,  People  of  same  stature  can  challenge  each  other.
 That  eliminates  me.
 So,  Trevor  where  are  you?

 Venkat  (and  others  too),
 
 I  spent  a  good  four  years  in  the  idyllic,  sylvan  settings  of  the  IIT  Bombay  campus.  Personally,  I  have  seen  a  Leopard,  been  haunted  by  the  vision  of  a  few  crocs  -  both  in  Vihar  and  the  Powai  lakes,  and  was  almost  bitten  by  a  cobra  in  the  wee  hours  of  the  morning.  Sadly,  I  haven't  found  any  of  that  in  the  midst  of  Ulsoor,  Bangalore  :-(  Even  though,  I  support  Bangalore  in  whatever  the  war  of  the  cities  is  on.  But  personally,  I  doubt  whether  I'll  ever  see  a  real  wild  leopard  on  the  rooftop  of  a  Professor's  apartment  in  the  midst  of  an  educational  campus.
 
 As  far  as  fish  goes,  I  don't  think  anyone  can  beat  the  number  of  Tilapias  in  Powai  lake  -  especially  with  regard  to  the  amount  of  mercury  they  hold  in  their  veins.  Those  guys  are  more  clinical  thermometers  than  pisceans.

Some  say  to  have  heard  of  a  tiger  near  Canheri  caves.  How  true  is  this?                

 
 Canheri  Caves  has  become  really  spooky  area  in  recent  times.  Not  heard  of  tiger  but  you  will  definitely  spot  leopard  if  you  stroll  around  in  the  area  for  a  while.  
 Even  BEST  had  halted  its  bus  services  to  Canheri  from  Borivali  Station  long  back.

 A  couple  of  years  back   (2006  -  I  think),  a  tigress  was  spotted  at  the  Nagla  block  of  the  National  Park  (Northernmost  boundary  of  the  park)
 Later  pugmarks  were  also  discovered  by  the  forest  officials.  It  is  presumed  that  she  travelled  over  the  Tungareshwar  range  which  is  somewhat  contigious  to  the  park  at  the  northern  end.  
 
 This  sighting  was  crucial  in  getting  the  Tungareshwar  range  declared  as  a  sanctuary.
 
 It  has  however  not  been  seen  again.
 
 @Shankar:  I'll  put  up  the  pics  this  weekend.
 
 regards,
 Venkat
