Life in the wild has always been and will always be about survival of the fittest. The race to live starts from the very moment of birth. There’s no breather, no mercy, no second chance - new born has to sprint from the moments of its birth - be it a lion or a gazelle - status holds no bar.
One such instance presented to me during one of my wild endeavors. A day old Gazelle was chased by a bunch of Jackals - a race to survive which Gazelle almost won, until it took a wrong turn and ended up diving right into the mouth of an unsuspecting Lioness. As surprised as the lioness was, it sure didn't mind a quick evening snack.
However sad it is to be witness to the cruelty of nature, yet it's the circle of life which has been in motion since the beginning of lifeforms on our planet.
‘Kuishi’ in Swahili translates to ‘Survival’
