Today morning, as I was taking a solitary walk around the campus and was admiring its tranquillity, a cuckoo’s melodious chirp happened to catch my attention. Immediately looking up, I tried to find out which tree was the bird sitting on.
A young lady, standing nearby, smiled at me helplessly. Nevertheless, I continued with my failed attempts to spot the bird. The lady’s smile widened. Now I understood.
“So, it is her who is making the cuckoo sound!” – I rightly concluded.
I let out a little laugh. We exchanged smiles; then resumed our walking on our respective paths.
Minutes later, we ran into each other again. A few seconds after, a cuckoo cooed again. The lady looked at the trees above to find the cuckoo out. She could not.
She looked at me. Gazed at me for a fraction of second and exclaimed- “It is you!!!”
I giggled. She giggled. We laughed.
A healthy and happy start to a lovely day…
