Alipore Zoo - 30 years back, 10 years back and today! During childhood, for a few years, the zoo visit was an annual ritual, headed by our grandfather and performed during the last week of December. In those days, Kolkata used to have only a short lived brush off with winter and not the real winter.
People used to flog maximum around the lion cage and we actually used to get scared by its frequent roaring! We also used to feed peanuts etc. While growing up, this ritual ceased to exist, until ten years back I decided to revise it with a kid sibling.
Though whatever little we saw sufficed the awe of my sibling, I was in for a great shock as the zoo was almost barren. There were very few animals, very less public and in many places, the zoo smelt of urine! After reading and hearing about the zoo restoration activities, this year I dared again to visit the Alipore Zoo with my kid nephew and other family members.
And this time, the zoo visit was a pure treat! The zoo is much better planned than before. A kind of natural habitat has been built for three lions.
Quite a few new bird species have been introduced. Each cage is double fenced so as to discourage food feeding to the animals by the visitors. There are guards though very few to ensure this as well. Signs and maps are placed at right places to guide the visitors.
Quite a few toilets, dustbins and water taps have been introduced. There are a lot of grass patches and couple of kiosks where people can rest and have their food. However, you are required to get your own food.
Only ice creams, water and a couple of snack items very oily are available for purchase inside. You will find these bats a few steps towards the right from the zoo entrance.
