My Times Today. Roughly two decades ago, Doresanipalya forest research station, on the outskirts of Bengaluru, found itself ambushed by a ring of glass and concrete monoliths. Borewells on the 91 acre campus turned into a paradise for butterflies. The Bangalore butterfly club decided that this oasis of green must to be put on their butterfly spotting map.
Every fortnight Rohit Girotra a management professional gathers a group of enthusiastic and merely butterfly curious. The free guided walks through the campus usually take three hours. Those with cameras crouch, bend and hold their breath to capture the frisky beauties.
