Dr Rahul Bhagwat is Gujarat's ace bird photographer. He is a visiting lecturer at Gujarat Forest Rangers College and his photographs have been published and used in wildlife sanctuaries across India. He also holds a doctorate in Indian Classical Music and is a tabla player. In this episode of The Write Creed, Eisha and Dr Bhagwat talk about birds, photography, eco-tourism and conservation. Dr Bhagwat tells Eisha that he's comfortable in Hindi only. Eisha tells him she can't talk about birds in anything other than English. She asks her questions in English, he answers in Hindi. The words flow without the need to translate them. This encapsulates the beauty of conversation in India, multilingual and boundless. #birdsofgujarat #rahulbhagwat #birdphotography #wildlifephotography #cameras #instagram #facebook #tourism #pandemic #tadoba #gir #ranthambore #vadhwana #conservation #ecology #wildlife #tiger #jimcorbettnationalpark #nationalparks #india #gujarat  Birdsong: Orange-headed thrush recorded by Dr Rahul Bhagwat
