Full day searched for the leopards and nothing happened until the last moment. Had a news from someone that a Leopard is sleeping bit further from water place in Thelabugaswala. Almost 5 PM from Medapara Junction. But decide to go there and try. This is what the luck is. Once we stop there, suddenly the Leopard - "J" Start walks in to the water place and had a drink. What a moment. Drive back to the gate soon.
