MY STORIES OF.....FROGS, MONKEYS AND ELEPHANTS

Every creation by NATURE, be it the animal, bird, forest, mountain or the river, has the right to live in its true pure form; but we, the so called most intelligent living beings are destroying or spoiling them for our benefits. I question,'Can't we live in harmony with them?' Then, comes...'The Darwin's Theory Of Survival Of The Fittest' to mind, one has to fight to survive! But fighting doesn't mean killing, at least now, when science has come this far. Being smarter ones, we can avoid causing any harm to them and still survive! Isn't that something to be thought over? And, again, for that balanced ecosystem all have to survive for the sake of all.

I want to save all the species on the planet but since it's a Hobson's choice, I have to choose these... my favorites. Favoritism prevails everywhere, I hope my other fellow beings on the list don't mind for not being chosen.

FROGS...? They sounded very interesting since my childhood. We sisters used to sit by the pond in our farm and watch the tadpoles make tiny hops and merry. The way they swam was truly delightful for us. So, for this reason, the unhappy me who doesn't see a frog around these days,
want to save them and their relatives, I mean the other species of frogs from all over the world.

The next ones are our relatives of past, Monkeys...! I heard stories about these naughty creatures snatching bananas, coconuts and even purses from people. Once they had taken an entry into my house through the back door while I was fast asleep on one afternoon. I woke up to see a family of monkeys-2 adults and two babies entering into my kitchen in a queue quietly. Petrified me, ran to the neighbors to get help and by the time I returned with my neighbor they were on their way back with the head of the family carrying my box full of flattened rice. Somehow my neighbor managed to take my box back! They had eaten my onions, potatoes and carried some sweet lemons that I had kept on the cooking platform. Yeah! They messed up my kitchen and ate my food and I still want to save them and their other relatives! Generous, me.

Elephants? I always knew as them as humble and friendly creatures. The movie buff me, saw them in every other movie as a pet and admired them a lot and....the story still continues. So, I want to save these, my all-time favorites.
