A tiny bird sitting pretty proud on the heap of the small straws she has collected to form her home. She has every reason to feel proud of it as it has been done by her bit by bit flying helter skelter through every nook and corner of her reach in search of necessary material for it. Birds too, like humans, need a home, more so when they get pregnant, to lay their eggs more securely keeping them fully prepared to ensure that their off springs are duly taken care of before they grow to a level when they can fly in the open air at their own. Their upkeep is fully flaw less and, besides being provided with necessary food by their parents, they are given a proper training too by them (the parents) to move from place to place at their own. Theirs is a typical system of training which the humans should learn from them. When the off springs grow in full shape, their parents push them with a jirk outside the nest taking full care that in the event of falling down on earth they don’t get injured. Normally it doesn’t happen, and the baby birds are able to take the plunge after a few false flutters. After this lesson, they start depending on their own selves. We, the humans, lag far away behind the birds in many respects.
Thanks to Nitin Puranik, the photographer, from whom I got inspired to blog this photograph of his. His is the calibre in photography quite potentially rich in growing to much bigger a horizon.
