India is a place where seeing footprints in the mud makes people wait for hours just for a glimpse of a striped tail, where capped languor swing effortlessly in the trees, and hoolock gibbons bellow at dawn only miles away while leopards wait in the dense tangle of trees. Storks larger than any of the monkeys fly over busy streets splashed with the color and shimmer of elaborate fabrics and crops. The trees become scarce as buildings multiply and tea plantations grow, but India is a home to people who care; people who live as ambassadors for the kings, the acrobats, the singers, and the flyers. India is a place where rhinos can graze together and elephants have sanctuaries; a place where the wildlife has a chance for a bright future.
