I spent last week end in the dry forest of Sasan Gir National Park, watching the desiccated leaves scurry across the parched earth in the hot, dry breezes. The sun beats down mercilessly there, as this corner of India anxiously awaits the coming monsoon - still months away. Even so, the regal Asiatic Lion holds sway over their kingdom, camouflaged perfectly for this landscape. I took three safaris and was lucky. Eleven lions sighted, included one glorious morning when I was blessed to see three lionesses and their five cubs on the prowl in their territory.
