The life of a forester is full of exciting experiences. An Indian Forest Services (IFS) officer shared a photo that shows a glimpse of that life. It shows a leopard walking in front of a forest rest house where he was staying.
Like a Ruskin Bond story, this one met outside a Forest Rest House and we spent a lot of time last night in each other’s company. So much natural history in the walls of this 120 year old FRH of Katarniaghat pic.twitter.com/IbIDz7pRfw

Officer Akash Deep Badhawan said in the caption that the encounter reminded him of a Ruskin Bond story.
“As a Ruskin Bond story, I met this one outside a Forest Rest House and we spent a lot of time last night in each other’s company. So much natural history in the walls of this 120-year-old FRH of Katarniaghat,” the IFS officer said in his tweet.
The post has received more than 3,000 likes on Twitter. The users are quite surprised when they see the photo.
“Must be looking for a spare room,” one user commented. “Great way of life,” said another.
“Want to live in this house. And go for a walk after dinner,” noted a third user.
Ruskin Bond is an Indian author of British descent. Aubrey Alexander Bond, his father, was a Royal Air Force (RAF) officer in India. In Shimla he attended the Bishop Cotton School. The Room on the Roof, his first novel, won the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize in 1957.
In 1992, he received the Sahitya Academy Award for his novel in English Our Trees Still Grow in Dehra. The author has written a large number of short stories, essays, novels and children’s books. In 1999 he received the Padma Shri and in 2014 the Padma Bhushan.
