Tejdeep Kaur Menon is a busy bee these days. For the uninitiated, she happens to be the former director-general of the special protection force. However, these days she is busy using her skills to protect bio-diversity in and around the city. During her free time, she pens poetry and feeding birds at home or organizing cleanliness programs at Ameenpur and Fox Sagar lakes and sometimes Anantagiri Hills.


For Tejdeep, it all started in 2017. She was with the Special Protection Force Academy and she used to stroll around Ameenpur Lake with birdwatchers and she eventually turned it into a hobby. She reminisces, “Every time I went I would see illegal water tankers, fishermen using crackers to shoo away birds feeding on fish and land encroachment. She decided to do something about it and that’s when she got the attention of the government and made them allot funds.


The then irrigation minister granted Rs 10 lakh for her mission which she used to create a nesting habitat for pelicans. She also organized awareness drives for villagers to help them understand the need to preserve their natural habitat.


Tejdeep also worked for the rejuvenation of Fox Sagar Lake in Jeedimetla with the help of the World Wide Fund (WWF). Thanks to her efforts, the government allocated Rs 50 lakh for the task. She also took up the cause of ending illegal sand mining in the area. Fox Sagar Lake is known for its 121 varieties of bird species.


The former cop also worked with the local temple management to gauge the damage being done by vana bhojanalu at Anantagiri Hills in Vikarabad, which was destroying the natural habitat of the region which happens to be the origin of the Musi river.


She now enjoys her time watching and playing with birds along with her husband Amarnath Menon. Tejdeep has also penned an anthology The Porous Earth which was adapted as a Bharatanatyam ballet, choreographed by renowned guru Hemamalini Arni. Incidentally, four of her anthologies have been converted into Bharatanatyam ballets.
