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.
