House Sparrows have a close connection with people and their buildings. They won’t be found in extensive woodlands, forests, or grasslands. They can survive only in the company of humans and their settlement.
But their life is endangered by human development. The modern day buildings and apartments are not sparrow friendly. They do not provide the space for the sparrows to build their nest and raise a family in their own sweet world.
Below are two photographs of sparrows taken at different intervals. When put together, they have a dialogue. What do they say?
Sparrow 1 (Left Picture): “Come with me. I’ll take you away to a new world where we can breathe the fresh air. I’ll be your Savior. I’ll protect you and take care of you. Do not panic, come with me. I’m ready to fly. It is a beautiful world out there. We can spend the rest of our life in peace.”
Sparrow 2 (Right Picture): (sighs) “How i wish i was born free. All my life i struggled. I do not want to waste my time and let my life go in vain. We can recreate a new world here. I wish to see the sunshine. I wish to see the rain. I want to rest in peace with you here in our own sweet world. Do not go, come back to me”.
