@aseigeThank you very much indeed for setting my orientation right. The reference map that we were following (distributed by the army at the festival) showed Jahaz Banda and Jhandri village right on the Utror-Thal track. So I assumed that this pictured Forest Department resthouse lies at Jahaz Banda. The Jahaz Banda meadows, as you folks mentioned is atleast 15 kms crow-flight away from the photgraphed Resthouse. I now stand corrected. But in anycase, I will have that printed map scanned and post it here, which caused all the confusion in my mind.

The raging rapids of Utror / Gabral River on way to Utror.
Looks like a newly built concrete bridge on the Utror track.
This section of the Utror track is full of sharp rocks / shingles. Two Toyota Corolla taxis passed over it a few minutes earlier!
