J is for Jungle

The deep, dense, dark, holding so many secrets which are still unexplored.

The word jungle originates from the Sanskrit word Jangla meaning uncultivated land.

Jungles cover a major part of national parks and sanctuaries which are protecting and taking care of endangered and other animals, birds, reptiles, flora, fauna etc.

There’s an unspoken beauty in jungles which is still covered and beautifully protected.

Jungles from ancient times have been helping humans in varied ways, even today people depend on the forest for paper, timber, fuelwood, medicine, fodder and other ecosystem services like soil improvement, preventing soil erosion, shelter beds etc.

It even gives many medicinal herbs, essential oils, fruits, fibers, rubber, bamboo, cane, types of woods etc.

They are home to animals and plants of great variety. They are the lungs of Earth, they help to stabilize the environment.

Be it any when you enter the jungle the sounds, the feel, the thrill, the howls all excite a lot. There is an adventure, there is a thrill, there is knowledge, there is nature calling.

Be it Amazon or Tarzan’s, Be it Papua or Mowgli’s, jungles have always fascinated me, and always long to trek and explore them.

Be it any metaphor, or any law of jungle one can never have enough of it, they still have unexplored secrets deep within them and that is what inspires me, the unknown truth about them. It has uncontrolled and untamed nature.

Same is our creativity it is still unexplored till we try and explore or find them. there is so much inside us we need to show it the path.

The Jungle book was always my favorite cartoon, book & now the movie too.
