Kashi has age old traditions. One might have heard the story of Raja Harishchandra, Dom Raja and the cremation ghats of Kashi. Late Shri Jagdish Choudhury (wearing gamchha) ‘Dom Raja’ has been conferred #PadmaShree posthumously this year. #PadmaAwards #Kashi
Frequent seizures of live pangolins or their scales indicate that we need to make locals more aware about the looming threats on this species. Role of stakeholders is quite important and fight against organised wildlife crimes can be won collectively.
Sessa Orchid Sanctuary in Arunachal Pradesh is one of the rarest protected areas dedicated to orchids of eastern himalaya and a worth visiting place. A young officer @AnkitKumar_IFS has done a great job to popularise it by involving local communities. @PemaKhanduBJP @CentralIfs
'Onomatopoeia' is a kind of word that phonetically mimics, imitates, resembles or suggests the natural sound of the thing it describes. It comes from a compound Greek word for “the sound/name I make.”
Example? 'Hoopoe' is named based on the sound it makes. @IndiAves
Chhattisgarh police arrested a person with tiger skin in Dhamtari district. Another taxidermied tiger skin was caught in Kolkata and three persons arrested. Wildlife crime and trans boundary illegal trade is the fourth largest crime across the globe.
#India🇮🇳 is home to 75% of the world's tiger population! Efforts of officers like Ramesh Kumar Pandey of Dudhwa Tiger Reserve help the Tiger to flourish. Congratulations for getting @UNEP's 2019 Asia Environmental Enforcement Awards for fighting transboundary environmental crime.
Thanks for the honour @UNEP. Overwhelmed. Humbled. Grateful to each and everyone.
