Fly Away From Here…

I’ve always wanted wings. Some of my friends say I’ve always had them and no, they are not clipped. Yet I just can’t seem to take off. Imagine, I am even struggling to keep this blog afloat with just one post a week! Well, fresh off a vacation I did manage to put in two…

Hum A Happy Song

Hummingbird, the smallest among all birds, symbolizes lightness of being, swiftness, independence, courage, sensitivity, determination, love, beauty, endurance, wisdom, vitality, hope, and enjoyment of life.

Birds of a Feather

Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in…

More Crow Art

More from the installation on crows that I spoke about yesterday. Hope you enjoy this one too!

Crow Art

While I have seen this scene with real crows too, this installation at the Kala Ghoda Art Festival was amazingly well recreated! It surely made me and my camera glad. What do you think? Did you realise this was fake too?

While I don’t know the reasons, maybe this link can help. Needless to say I find this practice of selling peacock feathers inhuman, but I know that the stunning bird sheds…

The Flight to Freedom!

Pigeons are a very vivid part of our landscape. There are times when we need to de-stress in the busy and crazy city, so you would find people feeding these winged rangers. Some of us just want to repent, or seek closure in life,  others just don’t appreciate the fact that they need to fend…

the Grace and Glory of a Swan

Thanks to fairy tales, most of us tend to like swans as compared to ducks. But its only when you see them together that you realize that the bias isn’t unjustified, swans do looks prettier than ducks. May be it is they pristine color, or gaiety movement, they do make for a pretty picture!
