The Wise One!Wonder why are the owls considered wise? I am sure its definitely not cause they sleep during the day, else many of us would also have easily got the title of wiser or wisest 🙂 These ones got the title bequeathed as the ancient Greek goddess of wisdom, Athena, somehow turned to have an owl as her symbol!
In India, Mahalakshmi, Goddess of Wealth comes riding on an Owl and so for many seeing this bird counts lucky and they take it a premonition of wealth coming their way. Trust me I have seen many from the ones who are resident Indians, the tourists who come here to take a break from the chilling winter back home and the non residents but my bank account is a real proof of this fallacy.
As all 5 fingers are not of the same length, not all Indians have such good thoughts on seeing an Owl. They consider it unlucky.
Nevertheless, am in love with this creature of God. I have considered myself lucky to have come across many of them and they do always give a good shot. Perhaps the love is mutual I guess:) Just look at them moving their head 360 degrees and you will fall in love with them.
Its a Owl Day, love them, save them and let them prosper in this land. You may never know the Goddess of Wealth may consider stepping in your house for this good deed of yours!
Better be good to me or I show my ugly side and scare you:)
Amazed with their precision of not bumping into one another when flying so close to each other. And appreciate this skill much more when it’s landing time when they pick their spot well. Some of our airline can put the pilot community under training with them to operate smooth and no dash flights 😊
A skin shade lighter or darker has made humans in the past treat the other with reverence or abhor them. Some considered this a mandate to boss over the other just for a shade difference in the skin colour. Over the years with the spread of education and equality this fallacy is being wiped out to some good extent, except some sporadic event where the light of both the E’s has not touched yet. Only diversity and inclusion can take this humankind ahead and to the path of progress!
This picture clicked in Cambodia was something special. Seated under the Banyan Tree and in deep thoughts was this child.
The ruins can produce great thinkers and the Banyan Tree under its shade has seen men attaining enlightenment.
Hope this little one too gets a fair share of fame and wisdom!
March for a Cause: We all have gathered here for a mighty cause. We the two legged and the winged ones have a grouse with another breed of two legged and the one who consider themselves as wise as they claim to have bigger brain!!!!!
They have captured the water that we used to wade, dirtied and polluted it and now the greed is increasing day by day where they turn the water to land.
These breed are called mankind. Beware of them. Seem they have something called a heart but unfortunately it only beats for $$$$$$$ and nothing else 😦
Christening gone wrong: Me, they call a Black Shouldered Kite! I wonder why I was named as such? Was the ornithologist who saw me first was colour blind and missed the ruby red eyes. He could have named me the Ruby Eyed Kite or Precious Kite….Phew!!!!
Let me not be judgemental. Guess I may be snoozing when he spotted me. But if that’s the case I would have preferred the name Snowy Breasted Kite 😉. Humans sometimes make terrible mistakes and we birds have to bear it for the rest of our live and carry such ignominious name. Birds and Beasts are not the only one to bear this brunt always!!! The trend is continuing and now they also try weird names on their offspring too😄😛😉😂
When the journey of the sun is about to end for the day, it burns the sky to amber and at this moment silhouettes come to life to speak a story for themselves.
The camel man can speak of his adventures, the toy elephant 🐘 may share its woe on its existence devoid of life, the donkey on how it can too eclipse the sun and so on…..
Illusion: you don’t need a magician to trick you and get two heads attached to a trunk.
All you need is a camera and be at the right place and time to create such magical beasts😊
