A story about water

A story about water, 18th Jan 2013, 10:30 am, at Puttenahalli Lake.

Once upon a time, near large apartment communities, an Ashy Prinia searched for a place to lay her eggs. The land was parched and dry and there wasn’t a bush or tree in sight. Finally she found a depression in the ground and using her tiny claws she made a hole and laid her eggs. The eggs hatched and the Ashy Prinia took care of the babies until they were big enough to fly.
“Is that it?” you will enquire.

To which we will reply,
No it isn’t, dear one

Not by a long shot.
