Vashi





Question Hour at a Murder.

They do more business in the parliament of crows. They also meet more regularly; almost everyday without subsidised meals paid for by the other common crows. They mark out territory that the humans think was allotted to them by their imginary gods, settle fights without bloodshed and probably thank the humans for keeping the rat population unnaturally high. They probably complain about the pigeons, how they breed like rabbits and how they shit all over the place. It's mandatory that someone caws about how even if the crow shits on a human's head, it's considered lucky. So they allot quotas of many times they can do that to keep the value of luck, high.

However, these crows here were cawing about the November Rain. How it feels like summer once again and that it's very similar to the mango showers of Interior Deccan when the clouds gather every evening to create pyrotechnics, gusts of wind, the sudden downpour and the wonderful skies.
