This 79 year old mausa( retired home guard ) has been feeding peacocks in the hills around Athagarh in Odisha. He says there are around 60 peacocks living in that area who come to feed daily early in the morning and at around 4:30 pm. These beautiful birds only respond to his call and are usually afraid of strangers who come to see him feed the birds. His only qualm is that he has to struggle to buy food for his peacocks and has received no help from any authorities.. He lives on the meagre money that visitors give. Its amazing how he does his bit to preserve the environment.
