Cinematic Storytelling

“At the upper end of a valley a clear stream, which grows in volume as it progresses, gushes from a cave in which a python lives from under the roots of an old jamun tree. This crystal-clear stream with its pools and runs is alive with many kinds of small fish on which live no fewer than five varieties of kingfishers. In the valley grow flowering and fruit-bearing trees and bushes that attract a multitude of nectar-drinking and fruit-eating birds an animals, which in turn attract predatory birds and carnivorous animals which find ample cover in the dense undergrowth and matted cane-brakes. In places the set of the stream has caused miniature landslides, and on these grows a reedy kind of grass, with broad luch leaves, much fancied by the sambhar and kakar.”
– The Second Jim Corbett Omnibus
