In june 2005, A crow dropped a little bird in the garden of our house.The crow has caught the bird by its neck,so its neck we could see the bones in its beak and neck were visible out.I am not sure if its fractured but the way my mother, the aunty behind our house and myself fell i love with the bird.
Deep in my heart, i felt God has given me a opportunity to save the bird.and there by get his blessings.I made a hole in a small plastic can and used it as feeding bottle as we do for babies.
I kept my camera sometimes in hand and attimes in tripod while taking care of the bird.The neighbour aunty was treating the bird as child which i really admired.I too considered him as my brother and named him Ryan.
I was so happy that God gave me this opportunity to feed milk to a little bird struggling for life.The most memorable thing is that everytime we take the bottle near the bird, it will immediately open its mouth and say Ki...kiii..ki...kiii. As if the bottle is a bother offering food in its mouth the bird was reacting affectionately to us.
We kept the bird in a little pot with a netted hole because many crows were flying up to catch the bird again.I wonder if crows will eat such cute little birds.The touching part was the mother of this bird ( i guess its mom/dad ) was sitting in one branch of coconut tree all the day and shouting kee kee kee..It was watching what ever we did but feared to come down.It was as if a mother crying for help when her son has met with an accident.
I played with the bird for few minutes and thought its better if it knows to fly so that it can go back to its mother.When i lifted the bird in my palm, it sat calmly no matter how much i revolve.It sat quiet.Then i kept it down, fed milk again ,hided it inside the netted pot so that the crows wont catch it again and came inside my house for lunch with my cam.
After few minutes, i heared a sound of bird loudly which i ignored. In the evening we found that the bird was missing. Neighbour aunty said the servants brother, a 8 year old boy is from a place where they even kill birds and eat them.That boy was innocently looking at the bird when i was there but he has jumped down the compound, stolen the bird and ran.
The next day my mother scolded and cursed our servant and her brother saying its a sin to eat such creatures.The servant coolly said we used to burn these birds and eat.We all were shocked and felt too painful.I wondered how can such a small bird be of use to fill their stomach even if they are from poor family.The boy has stolen it and ran just because these people are addicted to the taste .
The entire experience taught me life .Some of us have a heart to save and heal others in pain while few others just steal and kill for a pleasure which wont last more than 10 minutes.
I was always telling the neighbour aunty that we both must make it a goal to save the bird and help it to fly with in next one week .This will bring us blessings from all the angels in sky.But God has a better plan.The little bird Ryan himself became an Angel the same day.
May God bless all who watched and reads this with a beautiful mind that heals others in pain. Spread the message of Love and humanity.
