Of Mouse and Louse

Louse is one of the members of the insect family, leaves in moisterous but warm place. It loves to live with the living beings to keep itself warm & comfortable. It has no ears to hear, no eyes to see but its favorite place for living is the human head preferably in the women’s dark bushy hair. They thrive mostly in warm head but not in hot heads. They can not stand by hot & extremely cold space, it again can not feel comfortable in nasty space neither in the hot headed women’s head. In an environment congenial for their breeding they breed in innumerable numbers. Within a short period of time they grow big & bigger only to suck blood from human skull silently. Unfortunately for them they do not have any other alternative as food other than human blood. The difference between the tigers and this little bug is that tigers eat up both the blood and the flesh of the prey & this poor louse is satisfied with a little of blood only. Yet then the human being is so intolerant to them that they find out so many means & ways to kill them.
Mouse belong to the mammal group of the species. They are cousins, sisters, uncles & unties of the rabbits, guineapigs etc. They do not stay in one place, they roam around the cities, towns, hales & dales , valleys & villages, in the hedges ,bushes, in the fields, river banks in search of food. They are again very much restless in nature, eat much , breed much of off springs at a time. When they are deprived of their food they do eat every thing.They even do not hesitate to eat each & everything including rags, papers. Above everything they impose a share on humans’ food items like paddy, wheat, so many other edibles. In each harvesting season they take a toll of more than half a million tons food grains. Their activities are not confined within eating only, they destroy another half a million of items of human consumable food in the domestic area, in storage , silos & in transit god owns. Peoples’ endeavours are going unabated to keep them under control through different means & ways. But all the methods are proved to be found futile & useless. Chinese in inspite of their being so much smart & dynamic in inventing rat killing medicine and devices could not make major break through. We now need to hire a Pide Piper of Hamilin to drive out all the rats from our soil to save the crops & to save the humans’ life from a disease called plague.
