Bonding for Life
In Kutch, in western Gujarat, the sarus crane is so revered that there is a local radio
programme put up by village women, in which the sutradhaar or narrator is Kunjal, a sarus
crane. The sarus crane is the world's tallest flying bird, with the male standing 1.8 metres
tall. Besides India, it is found in Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar and Australia. The sarus is
believed to live with its partner for life, so people consider this sign of conjugal devotion, a
good omen and welcome the birds when they nest in the paddy fields. The sarus, like other
crane species, performs a magnificent courtship dance. The male and female circle around
each other with wings spread out, bowing and leaping high into the air. Both fiercely guard
the nest when one or two eggs are laid. Today, only around 10,000 Indian sarus cranes
remain, because despite protection, its habitat has shrunk. The use of pesticides and
chemical fertilizers is another reason for decline in sarus crane population.
