I am a small parrot. I have a name too "Lattu". I live in a small cage hung in the house of little Pari and Rohit. They love me. They feed me regularly with small seeds and fruits. I like them too. Some times they take me to their rooms, introduce me to their friends. They allow me to fly around in their rooms. Outside in the veranda, I stay in the cage. I fear cats and dogs.
I am yellowish green in color. When I fly I make creeky and whistle sounds. I can make imitations of some people too. On my head I have a projection that's like a hat. Pari and Rohit said that I look so beautiful. I try to keep my cage clean. I dont dirty it. I am active all the time. I keep a watch on the house too.
I was very small when Pari brought me to this home from the city shop. I grew up in this house. When I was small the children used to put their fingers through inside the cage. I used to bite them. They were scared. I was happy to put them away. Sometimes I travelled in their car to outdoor picnics. Then they took me to some trees and kept me there. I saw that there were so many birds making so much of noise. They were inviting me to plat with them. I tried to come out of the cage without success.
Now I am used to this caged life. I am unable to sing as beautifully and as naturally as I could. I like to fly high and above the trees from East to West and South to North. I want to drink water from pond, sit on the cow, sleep on the tree. I want to make my own nest with hay sticks. At least if I could speak I would like tell Rohit that i want a companion and a natural nest.
Right early in the morning I wake every one up, but hardly any one said thanks to me. I give joy to them. However I stay unhappy. I have got accustomed to my life.
