We are very fortunate to have Sanjay Gandhi national park, right in the center of Mumbai. I have gone to Sanjay Gandhi national park many times before but I’ve never gone there really early when it’s still dark. My mom and dad go to Sanjay Gandhi national park almost every day for morning walks and they always tell me to come, but I am kinda lazy to get up early in the morning so I just sleep while they go. Mom told me that I really should come. She said “You will really enjoy. You love nature and you can see many stars.” So I kinda got greedy and agreed to go.
I woke up at 4:45 in the morning, brushed my teeth, wore my shoes and was out of the door. When we reached there I was very happy and feeling fresh. It was very cool, and there was no scorching heat which was good. There were not really many stars; I figured out if I wanted to see the stars, I should have woken up earlier. But anyway, it was really dark and it was the first time I saw the park like that. It seemed like a scene from the Jungle Book. The birds were chirping and there was a fresh breeze blowing over my face. We had fun as we walked up to Gandhi Tekri and then mom and dad meditated for some time while I took pictures of the sunrise and flowers. Here they are:
This walk put a smile on my face and I will definitely sacrifice my sleep to go to the national park. 🙂
