We always talk about Peacock …the male being one of the most beautiful and largest flying birds of the avian world , who can not choose her partner for courtship or having the next generation to follow him . The Power to choose a male with whom the peahen would mate and would have the off springs has been given to the Peahen(female) about whom we rarely talk about.

The peahen takes care of all the requirements of the chicks and protects from the predators.

The ambience of the scenario and the behavior of the peahen and the positioning of the chicks reminded me of a lovely song from the film —Hariyali Aur Rasta—- “ बोल मेरी तकदीर में क्या है, मेरे हमसफ़र अब तो बता! जीवन के दो पहलु हैं , हरियाली और रास्ता !”
