One more trip to National Zoological Park Delhi with kiddo

I been to National Zoological Park, Delhi in October 2014 after that unfortunate accident of White Tiger killing a man inside zoo, though since then another trip to the same place remained pending until now.

The last trip even though wasn’t really related to the trend of visiting the place just after it came into light, but due to the fact that I was actually chasing places to see White Tiger. Just in August 2014, we even trekked to Nainital Zoo looking for one, only to get disappointed at the end knowing that there was no white tiger in Nainital zoo since last 2-3 years. So when the news broke in about white tiger in Delhi zoo, then I was surprised to know that we had one in Delhi itself.

The last trip pictures were also taken with Nikon P600 just like this time though kiddo was still younger to make out the names of the animals. I was just waiting for winters to spread their wings so that I can visit the same place again.

Considering the sudden foggy days post 15th January in Delhi\ NCR and other things, it was lazy Sunday and we would have been up by 0800 hrs. Still we didn’t leave for the place till 1130 hrs and when finally we reached, took tickets etc, it would have been around 1430 hrs. We been hearing announcements that during Winters, Zoo remains open till 1600 hrs only, so we didn’t had much time in hands Sad smile


I literally never get proper photos of the flying birds in Zoo and this time wasn’t different either. For the same, one need to be focused on the task while here I was with kiddo so focus wasn’t the first thing in mind.


Kiddo was excited to take a look over Giraffe but for her bad luck, she was removed in last year itself. We somehow managed to convince her that tiger ate that Giraffe. Sorry Dear Tiger to put that blame on you, but we didn’t had any choice. Only you been having a reputation there.


And this was the Royal Bengal Tiger. These Tigers, Lions and Leopards do look royal if you watch them closely the way they carry themselves and so is the attention of onlookers over them.


Here comes the famous white tiger. Like I commented at the time of accident, he didn’t looked any aggressive or like that and in that incident, it wasn’t fault of his either. She was sleeping when we reached at her place but to our luck, she woke up for a while.


Next stop was for Leopard. She looked royal as always and was kind enough for posing as well. Only if I was well prepared then I would have caught a precious pose of her while taking the jump to rooftop which I missed awkwardly.




There was some self posing as well before its ended and then we were off to another battle of getting our car out from the parking. Trust me, it wasn’t any less wild than walking inside some jungle. Never underestimate wild instinct of Delhi/ NCR drivers.

A good Sunday ended…


MTNL Trump 3G Jadoo Card Experience

Update: For people looking for better rate for data usages, there are many available plans out in Delhi region. As per my view, there are three, which should suit people in the following ways:

  1. People with occasional usages:  Rs. 450/- for 1 Gb
  2. People with good usages: Rs. 1500/- for 15 Gb Currently not available
  3. People with high usages: Rs. 2500/- for Unlimited usages 

Like Chandan said in its Review over MTNL 3G, even I was not having a positive feeling about PSU Telecom Products. Although I have seen like my colleague B. S. Negi said what goes with Government Product that once set to work, they will work flawlessly, although you have to wait endlessly in case any fault occurs in the same.

I have used BSNL Dialup in Azamgarh, BSNL Broadband in Allahabad, Idea Internet (GPRS, PC) in Azamgarh, New Delhi, Mumbai, Varanasi etc., Aircel (GPRS, PC) in New Delhi and I could say that I got BSNL Broadband and Idea only good enough to rely on till now. Till now, I was on Idea Internet, even after they raised prices (earlier it was 5 Rs. per day for Unlimited Use and now its 20 Rs. per day for Unlimited Use) as its the best option, if you have edge in your area. All other options are more costly, if you are a heavy user.

Anyway, I was writing over MTNL 3G. I bought it from a local shop as the MTNL guy didn’t showed up for 2 days and then it was a total one day wait for getting the SIM activated. The excuse was server problem. Pretty funny!!! for the company giving first 3G for connectivity. 🙂

Initial reception was good and I was able to get around 350 kbps download speed and relatively poor upload speed of about 50-70 kbps on my cell. Although still remained was connecting it to PC. After searching over Internet, I got Chandan’s link and it resolved the issue. The solution was to use Nokia PC Suit and choosing to configure connection manually and putting pps3g as access point and leaving all other fields blank.

For the people, not using Nokia PC Suit, I found another get around.

Go to Control Panel, then Modem, Choose modem and put [at+cgdcont=1,"ip","pps3g"] without brackets, then simply create a dialup in known way and you are set to go.

What I am still feeling trouble here is the UMTS network reception in my room. I get all network line or most of them, but still I guess, I am not getting proper network with MTNL UTS here. If I put it in UMTS only mode, then I could actually see when 3G network is dipping. That’s causing one more issue heating up my cell as Network is constantly interchanging or discovering mode. These trouble are holding me to recharge the cell for unlimited data plan which is costing Rs. 2500/- per month, although other options are available like Rs. 250 for 0.5 GB and Rs. 450/- for 1GB.

Although for the users who want to go for it and searching that whether it will work in their area or not. Here is the 3G Map provided by MTNL Delhi

map_3gAlthough still I get the famous Error 734: The PPP link control protocol was terminated (Thanks to poor network reception in my room) while connecting to internet. This is an error from Server Side, if you are not getting proper network reception. With this error, I guess you can’t do anything about except waiting to get it resolved on your own or restarting your cell again and again 😦

Relieved from the above mention error after changing the area. Now, if I face any trouble then I check the balance. It has been happen sometimes that services might be down, but seems to be stable than early days now.
