of the more disgruntled and less imaginative elements of the population have recently been clamouring for the jungle on the site of the Ghana to be cleared and the area to be thrown open for growing crops; or alternatively that the water from the Ajan Bund should be diverted away from the Ghana and put to better use than 'providing duck shooting facilities for the Maharaja and his friends'—a charg [...] No sooner have the first showers of the monsoon filled the ditches and hollows in the bed of the Ghana than the water birds begin to move in evidently over considerable distances of the surrounding countryside in many instances and the scene is soon fi.ansformed into one of bustling activity. [...] The strengthening of the existing organisation by the addition of a few extra guards more vigilant overall supervision and tightening up of current restrictions would probably meet the case as far as the safety of the birds and animals is concerned. [...] The vertical band at the nape and the blotch near the base of the anal fin persist. [...] stage the commencement of the dorsal fin is distinctly nearer to the base of the caudal fin than to the tip of snout.
