What’s New

CANINE CUDDLES: Passengers flying from Mumbai airport’s domestic terminal at T2 have a great reason to get to the airport early: cuddly, comfort dogs just waiting to be played with. More here.

WILD THINGS: It isn’t easy photographing wildlife. In addition to skill, one needs patience, persistence, a keen understanding of animal behaviour, and a bit of luck, as most participants at the Nature InFocus Photography Awards 2016 will testify. See the award-winning photos here.

NEW UNESCO SITES: Last week, UNESCO recognized the heritage value of three more sites in India: the Capitol Complex in Chandigarh designed by architect Le Corbusier, the ancient Buddhist ruins of the Nalanda University in Bihar, and the Khangchendzonga National Park in Sikkim, rich in biodiversity and spiritually potent to communities in the region.
