Dispatch 45 | Lockdown Confinement Prompts Man to Set All His Pet Birds Free

In this 45th video dispatch in the StoriesAsia On The Road series, our reporter, Dipti Kumari, features a young man in the east Indian state of Jharkhand who set free all his six pet birds after experiencing confinement due to the COVID-19 lockdown. He still loves birds but doesn’t want to keep them in a cage any longer. Life, he now understands more deeply, is not just about having food to eat, but also about exercising freedom of movement.

** “On the Road” is a new series by StoriesAsia on the Coronavirus outbreak where we bring you stories that help you respond to this ongoing historic pandemic. Using their vehicles, StoriesAsia journalists will travel around to bring you stories of not just pain and suffering but also healing and heroism.

StoriesAsia, a collective of independent journalists from 16 South Asian and Southeast Asian countries, seeks to replace the present-day parade of faceless numbers with humanising narrative nonfiction – a largely ignored journalistic genre in the region.
