May the Forest Be with You


May the Forest Be with You



arlier this month, I was driving my family back home to Nainital after an out-of-town trip. As we approached Kashipur, my daughter started chuckling, pointing to a large sign across the road that displayed names of places along with distances. There was Kashipur, Ramnagar, Nainital, and Zim Corbett National Park. I was aghast. In a nation where English wine shops have been selling “child bears” for ages, a mere spelling error is hardly out of the ordinary, but one zimply does NOT misspell the name of Jim Corbett in our part of the world.
