In Loving Memory of Julee

February signals the end of the painfully cold winter, with the gentle warmth of spring gradually ebbing its way through the cities that dot the north Indian plains.

It has been many years since we welcomed Goldie into the Agra Bear Rescue Centre. He was rescued from a Kalandar community settled in Sahibganj, Jharkhand.
