If I were a bird....
If I were a bird, I would like to be one of the small species, cute and beautiful.
I would love to be a tiny maina which is beautiful, tiny and above all, it is a bird that people can keep as a pet. I would love to stay with people, study their ways and enjoy their company. It sings like a human being, has a sweet voice and, above all also has a great capacity to learn whatever it is taught.

If I were a bird, I would like my life to be a beautiful blend of freedom of flying in the high skies. I see the advantages in this situation and find it difficult to make a choice.
My ambition as a bird would be able to fly high as high can be, like any other bird. This would give me an insight into what exists in the atmosphere. I would also be able to assess the life of birds as a community, the advantages and the disadvantages they live with. I would share my experience with my kin and understand the difficult ways of life.

Though I would love all this, at the same time I would love to become a pet in a nice family. This family would keep me closed in a cage. Here, in the family I would learn to be controlled and restricted.
Here, at home, I would be served food in a platter, water in a dish in a right royal style.  What a life that could be for me. Hunting for food and being frightened of bigger birds attacking me would not be a care for me. I would be a loved one of many – what a wonderful feeling it gives.

While living with a family I would also be able to learn a lot about people. How they live, how they behave, and what their attitude is towards birds. I would be able to understand everything. Together with all these advantages, living with human beings, my art of talking like a human would get encouraged and I would get several chances to talk to the family.

If I were a bird, I would like to get the blessing of this combination to be set into my life. It would give me a healthy and relaxed sojourn in a family, together with free flights to the sky, trying out my skills there.
