The City Sparrow and its Tales

Author | Kankane Rakhi Surendra Publisher | StoryMirror Infotech Pvt. Ltd. ISBN | 9789394603370 Pages | 112

About the Book:

The best part about any metropolitan city is that it accepts everyone with open arms whosoever comes to it. Though, there are some facts about city life, which are not new to us. Some of these facts are gratifying, while some are really harsh. Just like anything, life in a city has its own pros and cons.

'A City Sparrow and Its Tales' is all about some of these facts of a metropolitan city that we all know, but probably don't talk or bother much about. This poetry collection touches some strings of such facts through the eyes of the main protagonist of this work, a sparrow!

Why a Sparrow? Because the author feels that a sparrow is a commoner, just like anyone of us. In the recent few years, sparrows are said to be on the verge of extinction, but the friendly bird who can be seen often chirping on the windowsill is much more than just a bird.

Author feels that sparrow symbolizes simplicity, power, creativity, community, and empowerment. The little charming bird, despite its small size, is an important part of our life who also serves the ecosystem of the earth. It is said that sparrows use their observations for their survival, and 'A City Sparrow and Its Tales' by Kankane Rakhi Surendra is a compilation of such observations of urban life.
