Prisha

Prisha made my birding outing even more joyous than usual.

On the flower-strewn path, she was both a delicate flower and a confidently striding national bird....

Having a child along on a nature trail is always wonderful; they always have a refreshing point of view, and it's a privilege to be let into their world of reality that blends with fantasy. Prisha is a bright youngster, who was interested in everything we (particularly Chandu) had to show her.....

Here she is, at the beginning of the outing, getting Girish to laugh out loud:

Prisha's parents encourage her to feel and touch; here's her mother, showing her an African snail, touching its "house":

Chandu is always so good with children; here he is, showing her a bird in the book (a bird in the book is worth two in the bush?)

Under the large banyan tree, she took Chandu's hand, and drew lots of birds' eggs all over his palm:

She asked for his other hand, and he explained that it was reserved for his own child (who will make an appearance in January!)

She never flagged..from 7am to past noon....she tripped along with all of us, often wandering off on her own to explore things; Girish has captured her many moods

And here's my favourite picture of the day; she seems to be asking Chandu, "Can you teach me more about nature and birding?"

R and G, take a bow for the way you've brought up your daughter!
