A couple of Sundays ago, Pradeep offered to take us for an early morning guided tour of Kol-dongri - another bio-diversity-rich part of the IITB campus. I am ashamed to admit that I had never been to koldongri as a student (even though I had heard of it from my more adventurous batchmates). So I was glad that we finally had a chance to go there and felt lucky that the wild woods still exist for our kids to enjoy - though unfortunately I'm not sure how long they will survive.
A bonus for us was some interaction with the local fishermen who use some innovative ways to fish in the Powai lake, and an impromptu market was set up!
