What attracts a visitor to modern Beijing is not
necessarily a visit to the Great Wall which lies a little West, but
its stupendous, vastness, the inspiring sites of old buildings and
modern architecture, its solid looking apartment blocks of huge,
grey, air-conditioned 'Sahaspura' like structures standing almost
every five hundred meters apart around the city.

Ingenuity of sunbirds:
Among our resident birds the Purple Sunbird has
earned a place for itself by the wonderful ingenuity it displays in
the selection of nesting sites. Not only that it is found to build
its pear-shaped nests of fibre in the most unusual locations, but
also to spend a blissful family life in them.
