…. and that makes me wonder why we are so in love with beauty and yet are so suspicious about it.
They sure love posing for the camera standing tall (and higher level than me) on the opposite building as the evening sun bathes the red bricks of the community center. That day he came as usual around evening tea time and decided to give a teaser of the thousand eyes in his tail. In Hindu mythology, the peacock is said to have gained these thousand eyes from Indra, the king of Swargalok who reigns in heaven.
Another view from my balcony. The community centre continues to be a hangout for these beautiful birds. they are beautiful no doubt but they sound horrible!! The male of the species sounds worse – almost like braying or a keyboard with the wrong chords, but don’t they simply look amazing!
