Once when he was in a park, he found this bird wounded, he bought it to his home, with due care and medicated. after a week the bird became strong enough to survive. But the bird did not leave, as if it decided to stay with him. Days passed, the bird laid egg and child bird took birth. Lalith was very happy, he used to spend time with the baby bird. one day the mother bird was trying to train the child to fly.

Lalith found that mother bird was sitting on the compound wall and was calling the child which was on the ground to reach it. The baby bird tried to jump and reach the mother bird but was not able, it tried and tried for hour, two hour but it failed, and finally it stopped trying, lalith decided to help the baby bird, he picked the baby child and placed on the compound wall. and later when ever the mother tried to train it child to fly height lalith came and helped the child. This continued. Eventually the mother bird stopped training the child, a year passed but the child bird was not able to fly, and it lost its ability to fly anymore. Lalith was disappointed, e went to his mother and explained his dismay.

Mother smiled and said “Dear child, in your kindness and goodwill you did not understand why such small bird had to struggle so much and face such hardship, but it was god’s way of forcing the bird to activate its wings to fly. So that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom.Sometimes, struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If God allowed us to go through our life without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as we could have been. We would have never been able to fly.”
