Read the following passage carefully. 


Legends will tell you that flamingos are no ordinary visitors to Kutch. They were the honored guests of king Lakho and he had forbidden the hunting of flamingos, which came to Kutch from various parts of the world every year to breed. For centuries the region has been a heaven for the migratory birds. Today, Flamingos city, is an island in the middle of Kutch, known to the world over as one of the biggest breeding grounds of the greater flamingos, is strewn with bodies of hundreds of flamingo chicks.

The parents of these chicks have fled from the island due to lack of food. Zooplanktons, algae and small fish that these birds survive on, are dying due to sudden increase in the salinity of the Rann water. One can ever see dead fish floating.

Flamingos need salt-encrusted, damp mud to build nests. The place where they build their nests has to be inaccessible to predatory cats and birds. It should also have sufficient food. The right mix of sweet brackish water in the Rann is crucial for the proliferation of planktons and algae that the flamingos feed on. Faced with starvation flamingos have fled from the island leaving their chicks to feed for themselves. Till date around a thousand flamingos have died.

 

On the basis of your reading of the passage answer the following questions in short: 


a. How did King Lakho look at the flamingos?

b. Where is Flamingo city situated?

c. How has Flamingo city become a mortuary today?
