pateluday, Thank you for practical information, pretty pictures and product lines.
You mention under the subheading National Park Tiger Reserve that no human habitation occurs in the Bandhavgarh core area. Would there be human inhabitants of the buffer area, and if so, what would they be doing there? Would they be people, such as arborists and naturalists, who tend the park?
