Inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream of a ‘Digital India’, a zoo in southern Hyderabad city is facilitating free Wi-Fi for the people who can click pictures with the animals and post it online instantly.
Thought the service is partly operational in Nehru Zoological Park, it will take two to three months to enable wi-fi in the entire zoo if it is found not to be harmful for the animals.
The visitors to the zoo on Sunday (July 26) seemed excited to avail free internet facility.
“It is important for people. They can use Wi-Fi, take picture with animals and send it to friends right away. It is important for India to start such services. Now, the telecom has increased in India. There are many companies like Airtel and Vodafone. They are improving rapidly. I hope the best for Hyderabad for this service,” said a visitor, Rashil.
The Zoo has a large variety of animals like Asiatic lions, royal Bengal tigers, panthers, Indian rhino, bears, deer, antelopes, birds and reptiles.
