I was staying with my Aunt Laxmi Hiranandani who, as a ritual used to feed Crows while sipping her morning tea in the balcony. The sight was simply beautiful. Her affinity with them is like a mother. Crows used to anxiously wait and call her with their caw - caw. Within seconds an entire community of crows used assemble and finish the treats within seconds. Such love and affection crows had with my Aunt, that I have seen a crow coming inside her bedroom and call her with their caw - caw.
As they were not used to seeing me, it was natural for them to be at bay from me. However, I managed to befriend them and one morning tried to stretch my hand out with pieces on Marie biscuits. It took quite some time but my patience paid off till one of them ventured to feed from my hand. Oh!, it was a blissful feeling.
