Peacocks, Birdwatching for Urban birds in Lucknow, India

peahens india (1)

I clicked this picture from my balcony in Lucknow, last winter. Peacocks and peahens don’t mind our home in the dense green surroundings. They sit on my rooftop at times, and even come to feed on the roti served for birds that are more frequent in visiting my balcony: warblers, babblers, mynas,the lone coucal, pairs of pink flecked doves and crows.

In this picture the peahens and peacocks are sitting on a neem tree, laden with the Giloi (Amruth, Guduchi) climber.

I feel so lucky that Peacock, the National Bird of India, lives so close to me.

Rangi Sari, folk song from Uttar Pradesh by Malini Awasthi with lyrics

रंगी सारी गुलाबी चुनरिया रे, मोहे मारे नजरिया सांवरिया रे

पहनी सारी गुलाबी चुनरिया, मोहे मारे नजरिया सांवरिया रे

जावो जी जावो, करो ना बतियां

अजी बाली है मोरी उमरिया रे, मोहे मारे नजरिया सांवरिया रे, रंगी सारी…

बीत चुकी है सारी रतिया, अभी लौटे नहीं हैं सांवरिया रे, मोहे मारे…

Yoga as it is, explained by Indian PM Narendra Modi at UNGA 2014

Yoga is an invaluable gift of our ancient tradition. Yoga embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistie approach to health and well being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help us deal with climate change.

Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.

Narendra Modi at UNGA 2014
