The ABP Group is probably West Bengal’s most prestigious publication house. They certainly have near-monopoly in the best-selling category. Their house snags the ‘sure-shot’ authors, publishes the most-read newspapers, and runs the most-watched news and entertainment channels in Bengal. From this institution of excellence, comes this morning’s ground-breaking reportage:
The Palmilla is one of the best resorts on the Pacific shoreline. It is also apparently one of the twenty best resorts in the world. In winter, blue whales come to its beach to lay many, many eggs. Tourists from all over the world come to see this event.
The translation’s mine, but there you have it. Blue whales swim into the shallows, clamber onto the shore, and lay hundreds of eggs in the sand. Every damned winter. In fact, here’s a rare glimpse of a whale sashaying in to lay eggs on the beach. Too bad it isn’t blue. (Observe, also, the ‘tourists from all over the world’ who have clearly come to watch this miraculous event.)
I wonder what the turtles have to say about this muscling onto their turf.
