The Indian Rhino-Our Pride

Indian RhIndian Rhinoinoceros-Also known as ‘The Great One-Horned Rhinoceros’ widely found in North-Eastern India’s Assam state and some areas in the foothills of Himalayas.Also listed as a vulnerable species meaning they are in the danger of Extinction or Endangered Species.

Generally found in The Kaziranga National Park,Pobitora Nationa Park and now some being transferred to Manas Tiger Reserve.Due to high concentration of Rhino in Kaziranga they are now being shifted to other protected areas.

Now the serious part-What if such a Beautiful creature become extinct?Have we Guys ever Rhino Kazirangathought about that.No one is bothered about their existence,they make us proud,India proud.

Through this blog post I want to raise awareness among the People on India and Especially among the people of NE to come up together and try to stop the atrocities happening on them not only them but all the other beautiful wild creatures.

Indian Government along with Assam Government are doing there bit which I suppose is not enough and I think being citizen of India we hold responsibility to do our bit too especially when the so-called ‘Rhino’ species is about to extinct.

Few days ago going over the net I found about the India: IRV2020

This programme is specially designed with an aim to increase the Rhino population to 3000 by the year 2020 which is a very good initiative by Assam Government and WWF  in fact this project can become a huge success if we the citizen and locals offer a helping hand and co-operate with Government and WWF.

The main aim of the IRV2020 is:-

One horned Rhino

  • To improve security in all rhino areas in Assam
  • To expand the distribution of rhinos to reduce the risk of catastrophes
  • To the concentration of Rhino in one place i.e. transferring them to other protected areas.

According to recent census Rhino population is on the rise with over 2200 Rhino found in Assam,though poaching activity is there but compared to earlier days such activity has come down with tremendous effort from Assam Government and the locals.

With more and more effort from the Government Of India and Assam,with help of the local people’s,and creating more and more awareness among the citizen of India I believe we will be able to keep our pride-The Rhino in a nourished way.

The Land Where I Belong-Assam


Hello Everyone,

So here it is..My first Post describing the land I came from Assam,

As it is usually known as the Land of Red Hills and Blue Rivers…actually it is much more than that I believe.Not only Assam the Entire North-East India comprising of Assam,Arunachal,Meghalaya,Nagaland,Manipur,
Mizoram,Tripura and Sikkim is a delight to watch and travel.Assamese is the main Language of Assam and also is considered  lingua franca of the NE India.

To start with, Assam is the only gateway to NE India with a Narrow corridor running through the foothills of The Himalaya that  connects the State with West Bengal and Rest of the India.

Assam and the entire NE is generally famous for its rich Natural Heritage..With rich Flora and Fauna one finds themselves pretty close to the nature.Different Cultures,Different Traditions mixing up pretty well in NE makes a basis of wonders to others.From The Mighty Brahmaputra(Prime River in NE) to Blue Hills to Never ending Natural Heritage..Assam has all.

The main City of Assam is Guwahati formerly known as Pragjyotishpura(meaning ‘City of Eastern Lights’) located between the banks of the Brahmaputra river and the foothills of the Shillong plateau,  which is also considered as Major Commercial and Educational Hub of entire NE.The city is a major center for cultural activities and sports in the North Eastern region and for the administrative and political activities of Assam. The city is an important regional hub for transportation.

Assam and its environs are rich in wildlife with several rare mammals such as Asian elephants, python, tiger and primates and even The Indian Rhinoceros.The bird-life in and around Assam is also rich and diverse.

Getting To NE India

Now here it is if Anyone is interested in Visiting NE India after reading my not pretty good Post about Assam…

NE India and Assam is very well-connected with the Rest of India By Rail,Road and Airways.The main Transport Hub is of course Guwahati. Best Time to visit Assam is between April to October  as these months offer a mild and moderate climate with pleasant and sunny days and cool nights.
