now, i would like to share with you a real incident that happened just yesterday. its a bit boring but yes, worth sharing and worth reading....bit funny...na na....funniest...!!!
Main Charecters: Sri Nidhi (Sri) n Me
Preface: both of us are working for a conference being held in Mumbai from 25th-27th. we are supposed to call all the HR's of all the companies and invite them to attend the conference. we are the "conference cordinators". We have the college phone to call. no one keeps a track on the numbers except that sometimes it may get recorded so that you will not call up your home.
Time morning 9:00 a.m
Sri n I were coming to our office. we saw an owl on the wall. it was the centre of attraction for the whole team. we clicked pictures had fun for a while and got back to work. Around, 11:30 i suddenly remembered about owl and went to see if its still there. This time the owl looked very frightened and i could see only one leg. i thought, the owl is injured and is pain. i rushed back to the office and directly to Sri's cabin.
"Sri, i think the owl is injured. i am unable to see it in pain. Lets call Blue Cross."
"ok Yamini. lets search for the blue cross number in the internet."
we got 4-5 numbers and we tried all of them...all of them were wrong. we called Just-Dial and finnaly got numbers. there was no response since it was sat'day.
"sri lets call Red Cross. may be they will have some contact of the Blue Cross." and i gave the hyd Red Cross Number. we called them, took the mumbai red cross number and from there got the pune contact. When Sri called Pune office, we got to know that they dont have any contact of blue cross.
we were very desparate to help the owl and so, we searched in the internet of those volunteers and doctors involved with Blue Cross and somehow got the numbers. we called a chain of five people of blue cross when we finally got 2 people for the bird rescue out of which one was travelling.
By now we have already made 20 calls. the last, 21st call was Mr. Ajay.
Ajay heard all the story and then asked if we are able to see the wound. we said NO.
"See students. The Owls dont fly in the mornings. they rest. and while they rest the sit/stand on only one leg. it is their style of resting. and we dont rescue birds which are not in trouble. thanks for taking pain ma'm" he said and cut the line.
We couldnot stop our laughter for a while and the whole team, when said, burst into laughter...!!!
Though it was a foolish attempt, our research helped us know one thing
"WHEN OWL REST, THEY SIT/STAND ON LEG."
both Sri n I are now the voluteers of Blue Cross Society.
