A Child’s Diary: Saee Yogesh Kokil’s Corona Lockdown Days

We are encouraging children to write diaries and share with us. We are presenting Saee Yogesh Kokil, a 13-year old girl, who lives in Pune, India. Here are her thoughts as shared by her mother (no edits, no filters):

Happiness hatching in the little nest of the bird

This was quite exciting. On last Sunday my playmate told me that he found a bird nest with eggs in the foremost compartment of a vehicle. And that way started my excitement for them to hatch ….

Luckily this week on Thursday one of three eggs hatched. With the hatching of the young one it was as the arrival of happiness came to the world after this lockdown. The very next day the other two hatched.

We were dumbstruck to see them. They are so tiny with yellow beak, with thin throat. They open their mouth and sit in the nest while their mother works hard to bring them food.

But with the arrival of them there lies a worry in mind for their life. Existing in an ecosystem there are predators and threats for their life …….

The mother herself knowns the pain of leaving her priceless child lone in between such species of life whom she can’t trust at all the “humans”.

But Alas !! every life exists with his fate already decided. On Saturday their mother as usual went to fetch them some food and a brown cat arrived there and the very next moment the chicks were ceased to live….

It deeply saddened us, but we can’t interfere in the future of the any life. At any moment it will cease or continue to live…
