Why did they laugh at me?During my childhood days, we used to see sparrows everywhere. It was the most common bird in Kolkata. In Delhi also, sparrow was very common till the early 2000s. But now sparrow has become very rare in almost all Indian cities. Many experts say that the radiation from mobile towers is the main reason behind this phenomenon.
So, I was very delighted when I noticed that a pair of sparrows has been building a nest in the letter-box of my immediate neighbour. Most probably eggs are laid. Today morning, I met my neighbour and informed him about the nest in his letter-box. He was very perplexed. But when I left, I could hear that both husband-wife, as well as their children, were laughing loudly. I have no doubt that they were laughing because of my request to be careful about the nest.
Was it the real reason? Were they laughing at me? Was my request so ridiculous? Now, I am very perplexed.
