Birds in Boxes

At a district railway station in Uttarakhand, I saw some ten boxes stacked up on the ground, full of colourful birds, and I found it worth sharing. We sometimes see latched-up exotic birds pleasing to the eyes with their prismatic feathers, warbling sweet notes through caged bars, but think back for a second. Us humans have always dreamed of flying, having had no natural wings; what would it be like to have your instinctive flight chipped off?

Set them free, these birds in boxes.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
