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.
