Humans of Ootkal #5 

I remember the floods of 1955, especially the night the water had entered the mud houses in our village causing them to crumble.

World Nature Conservation Day 2021: Poachers Turned Protectors; Odisha’s Mangalajodi Village Shows How it’s Done

Chilika Lake, the largest wintering ground for migratory birds in the Indian subcontinent, gets avian visitors from Caspian Sea, Lake Baikal, Aral Sea, remote parts of Russia, Kirghiz steppes of Mongolia, Central and South East Asia. Seasoned poachers of Managalajodi, who once used to kill migratory waterfowls and birds for a few bucks, have now turned conservationists.
