      thanks madam ! so kind of you !but here is the sad part !

      Conservation status

      Endangered (IUCN 3.1)

      The Sangai faces a two-pronged danger to its life. Firstly, its habitat is steadily degenerating by reason of continuous inundation and flooding by high water caused as the result of artificial reservoir of the Loktak hydroelectric power project. Secondly, poachers are out there to trap and slay the deer at the slightest opportunity.

    I’d never realized there were deer in India … and to find them only to see they’re in danger is sad. A lovely haiku, thank you for this loving post.

        I’ll reblog your post and see if my muse will condensend to a poem inspired by your post if that would be acceptable.
