“A little brown bird
Living near a big airport,
Survival a chance.
Equal to its task in life,
Quietly searching for food.”

Many years ago house sparrows were a part of our daily life. They used to fly in and out of houses. I remember them building their on top of a clock in my grandfather’s house.  Much later when my children were small a sparrow flew inside our house and hit itself to the fan and died on the spot. My children burst out crying.  We kept the body in a box and had buried it in the yard. But over the years we are seeing less and less of them. They are vanishing. It is very sad. It gives me great joy when I get to see them. I saw this little bird just outside the airport.

By Lakshmi Bhat

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I used to go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. Covid-19 has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. Hopefully I will be able to go there again. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.
