Living on the Edge
A desert fox Vulpes vulpes pusilla pup warily raises its head out of its den as a truck, possibly carrying materials that promise to destroy its fragile home, approaches. As India proceeds to emulate western countries in its race to ‘develop’, it seems to have forgotten lessons taught to us by our ancestors that the only way to a safe and happy existence is to live with and respect nature as a supreme force to whose imperatives we must bow… not the other way round.
