After performing my meditation in the morning hours, I went outside with some eatables for the birds and stray dogs. As all of us are observing lockdown, I too was doing so but my inner voice cajoled me to get up and take some eatables for the ones who were not observing lockdown at all.

The birds and other animals were moving without let or hindrance – the birds were moving from one branch to another without care and caution.

The nature creations; crows, pigeons, sparrows, etc. and animals like street dogs and cats etc. trees of various forms were doing their different functions as any other day.

The sun’s rays were bathing all the creations equally. I observed different birds, their multi-colours, from feet to the beaks.
It gave me immense satisfaction that I have come here to feed these birds and stray animals.



I happened to go to a park
While on a morning walk
With some eatables for the birds and stray animals
With silence writ large around
Due to the essential lockdown
No voices of humans heard
Children swings in the park
Were swinging but at a snail’s pace
Not by any human hand
But with the morning air which was blowing
A dog was sitting all alone
On the park chair with none around
Where people used to sit enjoying the cool air
At normal times
Has a ghost silence due to pandemic Coronavirus.
Now while the air is free from pollution
But all men perforce are sitting at their respective residences
Observing lockdown norms sincerely
So that they may not become cause of virus transmission.

Observed the play of nature and its creations
The green leaves of ashoka plant, neem tree,
Peeple and banyan amongst other trees rustling just freely
With sunlight falling on these green leaves
Which help these for performing their job so vital
Photosynthesis without any restraints
Thus channelling the energy of sunlight
Forming oxygen and carbohydrates
So vital for substance of life on this planet.
Then I turned my attention to birds
Observed the chirping of sparrows
The cawing of crows
The cooing of pigeons
The mewing of cats
The barking of a dogs
The coo-coo of cuckoos
Thus combining all music
Created by the birds
Then I introspected just deeply

No lockdown of cosmic functions
Without let or hinderance.

No lockdown of metabolic functions
We eat drink and have emotional feeling.

No lockdown of prayer
We can have connectivity with God.

No lockdown of love and affection
Deepen your love with the members of your family.

No lockdown of compassion
We should help meet others’ needs
Birds, animals or men in need.

No lockdown of internalizing
And exploit the inner reservoir of inner potentials.

No lockdown on our hope
This hope can bestow us positivity
To remain hopeful in any situations and conditions.

I sincerely pray to all my love ones
To observe lockdown
So that this Pandemic Coronavirus
Is not transmitted from person to person.

GOD is very compassionate with us in every way, need is to use those blessings which are the results of His bounties and thank Him for everything that He gives us. We should also share these bounties with our fellow-beings. I am the person who loves God and His Creations. I love my Creator and not fear Him. My children are adjusted to life, incommensurate, to their Karma and destiny. I have served as a Sr CGO for about 38 years in a Central Govt. Presently I am serving as an Adm Offer with an Engineering College. I am a spiritual person with liberal ways of thinking. I respect all the religions as I respect mine since I understand that all the religions are the pathways to a SINGLE ENTITY - paths for connecting with Him may be different but the ULTIMATE SOURCE IS ONE. I want to be a student till last day of my life. I am a homeopath also, which I pursue as a social service only. Happy moments, I take as God's Gifts, sad ones I take as His Test for me. I believe that He will surely assist me in this Test of His, come what may. Really. I have more belief in Him than I am on my own. You can comprehend my philosophy in life from my write-ups which I write while interacting with them. I firmly believe that every person has the special characteristic which other fellows cannot have and I respect that person as such. With the grace of Almighty God, a book entitled INNER THOUGHTS which could be purchased online from This book is based on the topics which have been penned down. That is why it is rightly said if intentions are good, everything goes well with you.


  1. NATURE is performing all its function properly. We all humans should observe lockdown completely.

    Our duty is to observe complete lock down since the MOTHER NATURE is performing all its functioning for us.



  2. Harbans, your post reminds me of yesterday’s morning walk. We go very early in the morning within our complex. When we stepped out, a stray dog greeted us and started walking with us. After a while, he vanished and emerged with a bowl and left it right in front of us. We realized that he was very hungry, and his hunger had forced him to come up with such a unique way of expressing his feelings. We immediately took a break from the walk and brought back some food, for him, from home. Feeding him gave us immense pleasure and happiness what we were missing, ever since the lockdown had started.
    I loved your very timely and apt post.

    1. That is the real ‘satisfaction’ since we as human being can tell somebody else for succor but animals and birds cannot. I got one of the best satisfying moment when the pigeons, dogs and crows were around me eating out what I had brought from my home. A real-time satiety indeed.

      Thank you so very much for sharing your part of experience with the dog.

      With warm regards

  3. Harbans it’s great to see your blog post again. Since air and sound pollution has decreased the birds have started coming near to my house. I’m really elated to see flock of birds near my house. I feeded them water and bread. They were so happy to eat it. After I started feeding them they come to my house almost everyday. It’s good to see that now nature is healing and ozone layer is getting decreased!!!

    Harbans check out my new blog. Pls follow and share this blog:

    1. Thank you so very much to find time and giving your invaluable commentary. Yes, these birds and animals do respond our love. After all these are also the creations of our common common Creator.

      The pollution level has decreased; meaning, we should always see positive side of every event or episode.

      I shall visit your blog.

      Thanks and regards

  4. The nature needed a little cleanse, without our always intervening selves destroying her little by little. Rather lovely how the quarantining has brought her true self back

    1. Affirmative ma’am. Mother Nature is always there for us but we remain defiling it for our personal gains but it also has got its limit. When its spoiling crosses its limit, it comes with a vengeance as has been done now.

      With regards
