Urban Wildlife

There was a time when humans lived side by side with wild creatures. Now, thanks to the growing population and cities sprawling into the countryside, the natural wildlife habitat has shrunk. The habitat that remains, scarcely bears any resemblance to the areas that existed in the past. However, if you look closely enough, you will find a few of the endangered species springing up, now and then, blending into the urban existence - exotic parakeets, strange varieties of frogs, bright-coloured parrots hidden amongst the Krishnochura leaves and the deshi Chorui.
