Source: Wikipedia My own experiences are quite relatable. When in Patna, I used to notice people selling birds in our lane. Pigeons, parakeets and sparrows would peep out of their cages and cry when carried from one part of the city to another.

We have had other species of birds at home too. Fish and dogs became our regular guests as well. We lost them one by one though. But believe me, the sorrow of losing pets is nothing when compared to the memories of the quality time spent together. Here are some stories that you may find interesting. A word of recommendation — try reading the original stories in Hindi to savour the flavour of the text!

Neel kanth: Picture for representation only. Neel kanth passes away and Kubja meets her end at the hands of Kajli, the cat. Radha, in the hope of finding Neel kanth some day, perches on the branch of the Ashoka tree and calls her heart out to him.

Gaura: Mahadevi never used to rear animals at home. This was primarily the reason for her being hesitant to accept Gaura from her sister. Nevertheless, she welcomed Gaura. As it became increasingly difficult for her servants to milk Gaura, Mahadevi was forced to temporarily hire a milkman.

Lal Mani, her calf, would play around her and even cajole her to feed him being unaware that he would soon be losing his mother forever. Sona: Picture for representation only. Unable to bear the pangs of separation, Sona would head to the woods nearby in search of the author.

This became a cause of concern for the servants who tied her with a rope to prevent her from straying. With each passing day, Sona tried hard to unfasten herself. During one such attempt, she ventured a bit too far! When Mahadevi returned home, all animals sans Sona greeted her. Sona had passed away! Durmukh: Durmukh the rabbit was fierce, competitive and violent. He spared none while launching an attack with his teeth. To tranquilize the beast, Mahadevi brought home his mate — Himani.

Surprisingly, it had no effect. In due course of time, Himani gave birth to six rabbits. Durmukh, as Mahadevi puts it, breathed his last while attacking a snake that had managed to trespass into his territory. Gillu: Picture for representation only. A pair of crows had done the deed, she was sure. She took him to her bedroom that remained his sojourn for the next two years.

On her homecoming, she noticed a heap of cashew piled up on his swing. Gillu was so far the only animal to have eaten out of her plate and that was something Mahadevi fondly recounted.

She tried switching on the heater but to no avail. Fate ultimately had the last laugh! Gillu was gone. Neelu: Born of an Alsatian mother and a Butiya Himalayan sheep dog father, Neelu is known for his amicable ways. When people throw food at him, he considers it below his dignity to partake even a morsel of it. They are replete with anecdotes that clearly elucidate that animals care and have far more sensibility than humans.
