What’s common between a cricket test match, an intensely smoky single malt and Corbett National Park? Plenty actually – they can all test your patience, are acquired tastes and even so are strangely favored by the ‘connoisseurs’.
Though named after the legendary hunter turned conservationist Jim Corbett, strangely enough only one of the maneater tigers he shot, the Mohan Maneater, was from these forests.Read More
Tranquil immaculate beaches, often isolated enough that you’re the only person walking on the shore with the odd local walking home, Kovalam was once renowned for spotless beaches and its endless shoreline. The hippies, however, ‘discovered’ the secret hideaway that...
