Had been for a study trip to the Andaman Islands (which is, BTW one of the most gorgeous places on this earth!) and one thing one can’t help noticing is the diversity and loveliness of flora and fauna in that region. When you get underwater, it is another world altogether! All the nemo's that swim by you and the unimaginable coloured fish that are so curious that they actually follow you around. One begins to think that the word 'UNNATURAL' should just be removed from our vocabulary because all that needs to exist is already there! Let it be the bright neon blue bordered fish or the octopuses that camouflage by changing their texture into whatever they are put on or the complex systems that these fish have underwater. Some of them are more civilised than humans! They stand in lines and wait for their turn to be cleaned by the cleaner fish while the corals have their own trip going! Nature is just AMAZING and we have a lot to learn from it.
