Birds should have enough food and water-a campaign by Dainik Bhaskar, Shaktishali Mahila Sangahan and Samvedna-a society for global concerns

Dainisk Bhaskar national hindi daily started a campaign to provide water and food to birds in this summer. Samvedna and Shaktisali mahila sangathan joined hand with the group in this noble cause and decided to educate people about the importance of biodiversity in general and birds in particular. We have decided to distribute 3000 earthen pots for this purpose.  We are motivating people to keep water and feed for bird even in broken earthen pots which are of no use for us but they make a good container for keeping water for birds. During our campaign few people asked why should we keepwater for bird. Different people had different opinion some of them believed it as a ""punya ka kaam". All these rituals in our religion have logic. e.g a rich biodiversity makes a healthy ecosystem so we should not harm animals and help them to live.  Every animal in the ecosystem is helping us directly or indirectly. Lets talk about birds. These birds do a lot for us, they help in pollination, seed dispersal, pest control and they have a lot of recreational value, The more one comes closer to them the more s/he will love them. So take a small step keep water in an earthen pot for birds in hot summer to save them. You would love to see them drinking water.

Birds from small as oriental white eye to big as phesant can be seen drinking water in the following pictures.
