Chenoumi: Please note that the English sentence defines "endemic" as "ocurring naturally in area X." There is a reason that parenthesis are being used. By collapsing the two sentences in the Creole translation, you have written a grammatical sentence in Creole but you have not been entirely faithful to the original. But, the question was about India, so please accept 4 points and my thanks.

  -> Thank you.

agree  roody barthelemy: But I would remove the hyphen in the demonstrative and simply go with "sa a"

  -> The functional suffix -a is part of it and NOT a separate entity. Besides, native speakers, including yourself, do NOT pronounce it as a separate "thing". So, it should not stand loose. There are many linguistic explanations for this correct spelling.
