CUCKOO IN THE HILLS


 Friends, this one, happens to be my 400th post as a blogger!


 Cuckoo's sonorous notes inspire one and all. This black beauty and its melodious songs touch mind's softer recesses with a silent recognition: " life is good, where a modest looking cuckoo's' musical voice evaporates all the worries and anxieties and fill you with hope and feeling of resilience.  The unique and distinct quality of its rhythmic renderings rise above  the cacophony of the world and transports the initiated into a magical and receptive attitude.

 I'd been conscious of the presence of this cuckoo since I've come here. It's notes were stirring my soul and a couple of times I'd a fleeting glimpse of it. Fortunately, yesterday as I's busy in the kitchen, suddenly I saw it through the window pane, descend on the large stone on the mound in front of our apt. It seemed to be in a pensive mood. I knew that if I'd go out it will fly away forthwith. I took a chance and stood behind the net door and took these pictures of her in different moods. This is the first time in a couple of years that I'd imprison her in my camera .

 Its singing is a constant feature in hills as well as in plains in   the coolness of early summer and during monsoons.







  Friends,welcome here as always!
