I was so impressed when he ran with excitement to touch and recognised few birds I had taught him from the book. There is no better knowledge you can impart into these tiny minds than the love for nature. Like most babies, he is so amused by trees and dogs and pigeons and parrots and I couldn’t be happier. I just don’t want this love to die with his discovery of i-pads and video games.
My heart aches when I realise how he will never we able to witness the ‘house -sparrow’ and several other animals and birds that are slowly depleting from our states, countries and eventually even the earth. What a common and beautiful sight the sparrow was when I was a kids and slowly how we got so busy in our lives we didn’t realise where it disappeared.
I want to incorporate into him the idea of making Nature an integral part of his life. We must, from the very beginning explain to our kids how crucial and wonderful the natural surroundings are and teach them to do their bit in conserving it.
