Coming Sunday, Jaipur to celebrate second edition of Bird Freedom Day
According to the activist group, normally we celebrate mother day, father day, friendship day etc., we can add one more day For Birds "Bird Freedom Day" by freeing birds that have been kept in cages.

It will be the second year that Jaipur animal activists will be celebrating second Sunday of September as "Bird Freedom Day". The day was established by the animal activists of Jaipur last year and an appeal has been made this through mainstream and social media to make the observance a success.

The main event will be held at the Central Park in Jaipur and it is likely to draw more participants this year. At many places the bird freedoms are observed but on different dates. Jaipur activists wish the day is observed globally on second Sunday of September.

Earlier, the efforts were made to celebrating the freedom of previously captive or rehabilitated wild birds on the day of Soccer World Cup. However, there is a need to build a consensus and work on guidelines on the procedures of release of captive birds and their rehabilitation.

I leave you with for lines of a poem by Ginn Bly to stir your feeling about a caged bird.

Deep within the soul of the lonely caged bird, / Beats the rhythm of a distant forest. / Etched upon its broken heart, /the faded memory of flight.
