On my wife’s birthday we planned a trip to Manali, a hill station which is located in Himachal Pradesh – North India. While moving towards our hotel we discovered a Bird Park on the road side. At one shot she asked driver to stop and got down from car and moved towards the park. Once we entered we saw small cute amazing colorful different shades of birds kept in cage. In each cage there were 2 birds. Only in one cage there were 4 birds. One bird was inside her shelter and other were seeing her. All were talking to each other but were not happy. They were stretching their hands to fly but were unable. This moved me, how such small beautiful creatures are able to express their feeling to each other by ignoring who ever was watching them. This touched me a lot and thought to capture this feeling of their no FREEDOM.
