It was midnight when our bus reached the gates of Hemalkasa. A group of people were visible in the shed located in a corner. It seemed like they had made a temporary shelter of this place.

As it was very late we were taken to the guest house. It was a simple and clean building with basic amenities for few human beings to stay peacefully. After a delicious free dinner we were taken to the auditorium where a short film on how “Hemalkasa – Lokbiradri Prakalp” came into existence was shown. A quick bath and our group of 20 tired people were in deep sleep that night peacefully absorbing the silence of the forest surrounding the place. A silence that is unknown to the city life.

Our bus moved slowly across the tall sunlit trees in the afternoon. Farms of cotton were visible every now and then. The guide who accompanied us told that we were near Warora in Chandrapur district in the state of Maharashtra. As we moved ahead, the board “Grampanchayat – Anandwan” started becoming visible, and with it one could witness the selfless services few human beings had to offer to the society. I had never in my wildest dreams thought that there could be people so deformed and unwanted by others until my visit to Anandwan.

Welcome to Amte’s Animal Ark at Lok Biradari Prakalp, Hemalkasa! Seen here is little Arnav, grandson of Dr. Prakash Amte, playing “horsey” with a fully grown leopard! These leopards are not captive in a zoo, but rather they are orphans whose mother died when they were just babies.
