Biodiversity

        The IIML campus is very green, perhaps too green. It is an 'ecologically rich' place. There are lots of different kinds of insects and other fauna here.
        Just as I was watching an inter-hostel football match under floodlights, and then talking on the cellphone, a kind of insect with a hard shell and pointed legs went into my T-shirt and came out with some difficulty. This happened four or five times in 15 minutes. Then on the way back to the hostel, I saw a big frog on the pathway. On my approaching, it took a really big jump to clear half the pathway and straight into the bushes on the side. Paraphrasing Neil Armstrong: 'that was a small step for a man, but a giant leap for a frog' :).
        Small black light-insects and moths can be seen in the morning in the bathroom and have to be cleared. Even in our class, a small frog has dropped twice from the A.C. vent, leading to some commotion.
        There also exist big wild lizards here, which people here call by the name 'vish-khopda', though I have not seen any so far. And then there are snakes. Again I have not come across them and they are probably not venomous (unlike in Surathkal where they could be deadly).
