Ramanagaram – yes, a place famous because once Basanti danced there on the call of Gabbar Singh. Forget the past, this place holds the most critically endangered life of India and Pakistan. This is THE place for those critically endangered Vultures who reduced in 96 percent in their count in last 15 years. In the last few years, we have noticed that vultures count have improved in Ramanagaram. Don’t want to go into the details of Vulture dead. But Diclofenac medicine – the real cause for death has been banned as well.

Don’t know the action of Government but at least they declared the place as Vulture sanctuary.
