Tree felling  
According to the Karnataka Forest Department, felling of most species of trees even in private lands is illegal. That's a pretty nice rule if everyone follows it. :)

I really like the second pic :)

One of the really cool things about all these photos is the feel of the regions that are not in focus. Really excellent.

The close up of the langur looks close to real and he (i presume its a he) looks so much like a human, especially the eyes.

Straight from the Ramayan the fellow in the second photo.

These ones I think should be sent to National Geographic without your permission by whoever it was who sent it to TOI. Good chances of being published there too;-)

Lovely photos Yathin. Enjoy your photos and your writeups. I am glad I bumped into your journal and added you.

the second one is different, the langur looking at you through the tree and you looking at it through the camera.

The FAQ section also mentions that keeping an animal trophy is also illegal.Once again a great rule, but no enforcement.

One thing that doesn't make sense is the fact that Karnataka forest department indulges in timber sale ? Now that is scarry. Why would they do that ? That is like inviting corruption with open arms. Aren't forest cover already scarce ?
