The looser ...

World's biggest
Kingfisher ...
(... along with
Giant Kingfisher of
Africa )
_____________

This spot ...
on river Shipra
... is now
over-exploited ...
... tourism-wise

but ... grossly
degraded ... ecologically
... environmentally

Hardly any species
are seen now ... where
we captured some
very uncommon
ones as well ...

That is the progress
and development
... Vs
environment
... in a decade
