Vikash Magic Bird


Vikash (8) has one brother and three sisters. He is the youngest of his family. His mother cares for their animals and a small plot of land on which the family cultivates crops for own use. His father works at a cement factory to support the family. The parents of Vikash envision a brighter future for their children as they themselves struggle to survive. That is why they are very supportive towards their education. Vikash is an honest, gentle-hearted and determined boy. Vikash: After school I like to play hockey and cricket and study. I also feed our animals, we have three cows and three calves. I love my village because my parents and friends are there and also the Pun pun river where I swim with my friends.

Magic of the Bird is about having courage and doing things differently. The print portrays a boy on the back of a bird flying through the clouds. Vikash: One day a boy was thinking that he would love to touch the clouds. Then he jumps on a bird and flies into the sky. Other birds start to fly along and the boy stretches out his arms in sheer joy. Then he looks down and sees how high he is and suddenly feels frightened. His house looks very small! Then he looks up, touches the clouds and all his fears melt away.
