बस यूँही……

A pair of Jungle mynas sitting on the branches of a champa tree had an argument going. The verbal traffic seemed entirely unidirectional.
Must be the wife scolding a recalcitrant husband, I thought.
Men, will, after all, be…….Men….
The jungle myna (Acridotheres fuscus) is a myna, a member of the Starling family.

It is found patchily distributed across much of the mainland of the Indian Subcontinent but absent in the arid zones of India.

It is easily recognized by the tuft of feathers on its forehead that form a frontal crest, a feature also found in the closely related Javan myna and the pale-bellied myna which were treated as a different subspecies in the past.

The eyes are pale, yellow or blue depending on the population and the base of the orange-yellow bill is dark coloured.

It has also been introduced either intentionally or accidentally into many other parts of the world including Fiji, Taiwan, the Andaman Islands, and parts of Japan.

The species has from there also spread out on its own to some islands in the Pacific… Pic courtesy Dr Chandrashekhar Aparadh.

जे मत्त फुलांच्या कोषातून पाझरले ..
निळ्या लाघवी दवात उलगडले..
जे मोर पिसावर सावरले
ते त्याहूनही आज कुठेसे – पुन्हा एकदा
तशाच एका लजवंतीच्या डोळ्यांमध्ये -डोळ्यांपाशी
झनन झांजरे मी पाहिले -पाहिले ना पाहिले.

जे कलहंसांच्या पंखांवर भुरभरले
सोनेरी निळसर मळ्या-मळ्यातून शहारले
जे पुनवेच्या चांदण्यात भिजले- भिजले
ते त्याहूनही आज कुठेसे-पुन्हा एकदा
तशाच एका लजवंतीच्या -मानेखाली किंचीतवक्षी
मी पाहिले -पाहिले ना पाहिले…..कवीवर्य पु.शी.रेगे

कदाचित या साळुंखीला उद्देशून तो नरसाळुंखी असेच म्हणत असेल का?का ती त्याला दुसऱ्या साळुंखीकडे त्याने दृष्टीक्षेप टाकला म्हणून झाडाझडती घेतीय? का तो त्याचे प्रेम व्यक्त करून तीला प्रपोज करतोय??? सरजी अप्रतिमच….

नेमके काय संभाषण चालले असेल ते आपल्या कल्पनाशक्तीवर अवलंबून आहे,
