The continuous search left him tired. He was looking for some green spot but everything seemed to be hidden behind the misty cloak.
The smog covered the road and in such helpless condition; a silent prayer emerged from his doleful heart and next moment his thirsty eyes found that spot.
Kneeling on ground, child was busy in digging a plant when he felt something fell on ground.
It was a bird.
He took the bird in his hands and tried to feel the presence of life but bird didn’t move.
Then, softly and gently, he placed it on the ground where little leaves of freshly planted tree silently cried for that deceased bird and moment the yellow sunshine fell on ground, boy saw an unusual scene.
Later, no one believed but the boy was sure that lying under the shade of green leaves, the bird smiled for a last time.
