Birds at IIT Madras

Now for some Sunday leisure. IIT Madras is part of a forest reserve. Over the years, I had some strange encounters with the flora and fauna (read snakes) there. There was even a ‘beware of crocodiles’ (actual crocs  not humans!) sign not too long ago.  It is home to about 85 species of birds (including migratory ones). My wife is on a mission to photograph them all!

Here is a slideshow of some of the birds at IIT, Madras photographed by Rama Neelamegam (ignore what the first slide says). If you like it, you can follow her FB page, Pan-O-Rama

Want to conduct a sales-free "basics of money management" session in your office?
I conduct free seminars to employees or societies. Only the very basics and getting-started steps are discussed (no scary math):For example: How to define financial goals, how to save tax with a clear goal in mind; How to use a credit card for maximum benefit; When to buy a house; How to start investing; where to invest; how to invest for and after retirement etc. depending on the audience. If you are interested, you can contact me: freefincal [at] Gmail [dot] com. I can do the talk via conferencing software, so there is no cost for your company. If you want me to travel, you need to cover my airfare (I live in Chennai)

  5. Excellent pictures taken by Rama. Didn’t even know that so many birds existed and that too at Chennai.

  6. very good pictures, i am very happy to heard that very few peoples have such hobbies apart from having hobbies which have only financial interest. and i think pattu have also contributed for it.

  7. Kudos to your wife, Pattu on this mission. Indeed IIT Madras is a delightful place for wildlife.. I have enjoyed it immensly.. Couple of those birds black bittern, striated heron were lifers for me..!!

    Good, for a change finance was indeed made truly personal 🙂
