Photographer's Note

This is Jayanti, a beautiful river passing right through the Buxa Tiger Reserve, famous for its Royal Bengal Tiger and the wild elephants. While the river overflows its banks in the rainy season, in winter when this picture was taken, it dries down to a trickle. This tree devoid of its leaves, stands all alone right in the middle of the river.
The name "Buxa Tiger" has been derived from Buxa Fort 'Buxa Duar' - a fort at an altitude of 867 metres on the Sinchula Range guarding the most important of the eleven routes into Bhutan, which once was used for detainees during freedom movement of India. The Tiger Reserve has rivers like Sankosh, Raidak, Jayanti, Churnia, Turturi, Phashkhawa, Dima and Nonani criss-crossing its breadth.
