The rapid expanse of urbanization across the globe is forcing mankind to distance itself from nature. The world now appears to be more suitable for humans than all other species. Humans are the only species who have adapted themselves to every geographical condition known in this world. From the South American rain forests to the Arctic zones, man is busy creating conditions suitable to his life. The ways of life too are rapidly changing, even for those who stay very close to nature.
Keoladeo Ghana National Park in Bharatpur, Rajasthan, India is one of the well-known bird sanctuaries of the world. Not long ago, the Siberian Crane used to winter here along with many other species of ducks migrating from various parts of the world. Not only cities have sprawled up rapidly around it, but demand and supply of water too has been a key issue for the last few years. The migratory birds are looking for alternate sites, probably in some other countries even and the sanctuary is slowly falling prey to the results of urban expanse.
Sarus Cranes are quite popular in the northern part of India. They can be seen mostly around cultivation areas. Some of these cranes can also be seen in Bharatpur bird sanctuary. Like all other cranes, the Sarus too is very social and many stories can be heard about its loyalty. I consider myself to be extremely lucky to be able to witness such behaviour. Their Story of Love is created to feature the simple message of life that can still provide inspiration to all of us and help us understand the need and urgency to not only save our forests, but save our world and thus save ourselves.
