KHICHAN’S DEMOISELLE CRANES

Airports India - - KHICHAN’S DEMOISELLE CRANES -

Imag­ine your­self stand­ing in a quiet, desert vil­lage with lit­er­ally noone around and sud­denly you see thou­sands of beau­ti­ful birds fly­ing over­head. Wouldn’t it be amaz­ing? Just like a scene from Al­fred Hitch­cock’s Birds, but these birds are pret­tier and kinder. This hap­pened to me in Khichan and left me mes­merised and en­thralled. Ra­jasthan sur­prises me all the time.

I read some­where that ‘Ev­ery­thing has beauty but ev­ery­one can’t see it.’ Not un­til I vis­ited Khichan did I know it is world fa­mous and the best place in In­dia to see the beau­ti­ful Demoiselle cranes. It all hap­pened by chance after I heard it men­tioned by my cab driver one win­ter’s evening, and de­cided on a whim to drop by this vil­lage on my way to Jaisalmer.

Hon­estly, this small, sleepy and then not-so-touristy town in Ra­jasthan, didn’t im­press me much ini­tially, as I found it
