Junglimericks: In the Crazy Wilds of India
Traveling to nature reserves and wildlife not only inspires many to be photographers, naturalists, bloggers but also brings out poetic skills in some. Asani Bhaduri, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Molecular and Computational Biology, takes to poetry to share his jungle experiences with Saevus readers – ‘Junglimericks‘, as he aptly calls his poetic expression.
In a pebbly mossy stream
A froggy was having a dream
Mantis, Beetle, Hoverfly
Oh no a python! It woke up with a scream
On top of a Chhatri at Orchha stays a Vulture
Adamant to inspect the food through aperture
My friends were wiped out
Due to Diclofenac rout
Before eating meat, always check for bacterial culture
The Lion King was taking a siesta
Noon at Gir, Loony and Sunny Vista
The White Gum Tree
Was feeling Lonely
The Grasshopper said let’s go to Barista
The big pink-legged Flamingo
Was unable to fathom the local lingo
Chilika’s little cormorant
Putting its head in a shame on sand
Angrily asked, who is this long Gringo?
Once upon a time in Mawsynram
A clouded leopard received a feline telegram
Rains (STOP) receding
Climate (STOP) changing
Pack your claws (STOP) Come to the party at Mizoram
Crawling came the Tarantula
Midnight at Tambdi-Surla
I said Boss
Do the Floss
Let me catch a few Tadpola
Chhatri – Cenotaph,
Orchha – Situated in Madhya Pradesh, India
Diclofenac – Painkiller drug which almost wiped out the population of vultures in India
Gir: National Park, Gujarat.
Chilika Lake: A brackish water lagoon at Odisha.
Mawsynram – Meghalaya, one of the rainiest place in India.
