Ernakulam: Writer-turned-nature lover Sreeman Narayanan, a native of Muppathadam, is on the mission to quench thirst of birds in the summer. He has launched project called ‘A clay pot for drinking water to birds’ (Jeevajalathinu oru manpathram).
Even few drops of water are very essential for birds to survive on the earth. Many birds have lost life due to scarcity of water in the summer. Realizing the pathetic condition of birds, Sreeman decided to launch the project.
“Urbanization has resulted a significant drop in the number of birds. It is reported that number of birds is decreasing even in villages due to the destruction of water resources. Birds are wandering to find water. Hence, this project was initiated to help the birds to quench their thirst,” said Sreeman.
Under the project, clay pots will be distributed free-of-cost in the places facing water scarcity. It is being executed with the cooperation of educational institutions, libraries and voluntary organisations in various regions.
Clay pots will be distributed to interested people or organisations on their demand.
In this summer, 1000 clay pots will be distributed in Ernakulam district.
Educational institutions also joined the mission.
The mission will be officially launched by distributing the clay pots on the occasion of World Sparrow Day which falls on March 20, Tuesday.
