    Best way to be one with nature, and at the right age.
    Most Pigeon's nests are just a token gesture, a few twigs here and there and its done.

    Love this post! You described your daughter's sense of wonder and love of nature so beautifully. Arundhati is my kind of girl. It's so wonderful that you are making sure she connects with our world. And please tell her that her pictures are AWESOME!

  18. Wonderful post! I enjoyed reading about how your daughter has found and now loves Nature even though you live in a city!

    hi Indrani, i love your daughter's name Arundhati,
    reminds me of my fave writer, A. Roy. ^0^
    It's a joy to see your kids grow up and mature, discovering new things and be aware at her environs.
    a lot of us take for granted the simple things in life.
    I hope in the future,
    she'll continue that passion.

    btw, her photos are stunning. ^0^

  28. Congratulations on your win Indrani. Lovely post and very inspiring. I love the idea of a tiny lily pond in the balcony, and the grass mat. Will search more about these to see if I can replicate these experiments in my balcony. 🙂
