Feeding Pigeons- My Morning Habit

I wake up to their chirping near my window every morning and over time I have learnt to recognize the change in tone when I am late in bed. As soon as I step out in the balcony, they surround me in expectation and it fills me in with joy and gratitude. They greet me with love every time I am back after a break as if they missed my presence every morning. Who knows maybe it is the divine communicating through them. And as they say in India ” Atithi Devoh Bhavah” ie a guest is the impression of the divine. Whenever I travel, wherever I travel, I invariably find a few of them atleast. Whether they seek me out or I seek them out is yet to be unraveled but my morning habit of feeding them, talking to them has taught me understand their emotions which is just like us humans…

These are some pictures of feeding pigeons from my balcony, Ahmedabad and Amsterdam.
