“Amidst various birds, the peacock, on account of its magnificent constitution, multi-coloured feathers, curved blue neck and well proportioned construction, stands supreme, unsurpassed, unparalleled, and unmatched. Its grace, its pace, its dance and its movements captivate the onlookers. To see a peacock dancing all alone in a forest is a joy for eyes. Out of two thousand species of birds, the peacock has rightly been chosen as the National Bird of India" (K. Lal, Peacock in Indian Art, Thought and Literature, New Delhi, 2006, p.11).
