Birds have a commune
of their own and they relate with humans in their own ways. They represent nature, innocence, and beauty but they also represent imagination, aspiration, and strength. Poets have used the images of birds both in abstract and concrete terms and to create a plethora of meanings. Here are some verses for your perusal and appreciation.
chiḌiyā ne uḌ kar kahā merā hai ākāsh
bolā shikrā Daal se yūñhī hotā kaash
chiDiya ne uD kar kaha mera hai aakash
bola shikra Dal se yunhi hota kash
