  3. Kudos to Dr. Hari Viswanathan and all members of the Viswanathan family for their systematic efforts in studying the environment around them. They go a long way in maintaining the balance between Man and Nature. The pictures of the bears are very clear. The fascinating aspects of their activities have been captured in minute detail. Such videos/ pictures are very useful in adding to the knowledge bank environmental studies. I wish the entire Viswanathan all the very best in the success of their eco- related activities.

  4. These videos are absolutely amazing! I had seen some of the still photographs before…but not the videos. I found myself drawn in …watching the different bears’ nocturnal behavior at the two ponds. I especially loved the young bear scratching his belly and so obviously enjoying the water. Thank you, Hari!
