Indian Forest Service officer Sudha Ramen took to Twitter to share the beautiful scenery of fireflies glowing all over under the darkness of night sky. In the video that is shot in some unknown place, one can see the fireflies glowing with striking of lightning in the background. Sudha, while sharing the video online, wrote that she traced it from social media to take her followers over to forests.
While sharing the video, Sudha also informed her followers that the fireflies are commonly found in damp forests, marshlands and appealed to them for solidarity for all species. Sudha also pointed out that the population of fireflies, which she prefers to call 'Diya of Forests' is drastically reducing day by day. The 34-second-long video has already garnered more than 5,100 views since it was uploaded two hours ago.
