NINA AND THE BABY SPARROWS
There was great joy in Nina’s house. Nina's aunt was getting
married. Nina, her father, mother and little brother were all going
to Delhi for a wedding. Everyone was happy, except Nina.
Her mother took her to the market to buy a new dress.
“What colour would you like?” Mother asked.
“I don't want a new dress, Mother,” said Nina.
“ then?”
Nina shook her head.
“What about those lovely white shoes you saw last week?”
“I don't want those, either. Thank you, Mother.”
Nina’s mother was upset, but she said nothing. They went
back home and had lunch. After lunch mother came and sat near
Nina. “What is it, child?” she asked. “Why did you say 'no' to
everything?”

“I see...” said mother.
“They’re just beginning to get their feathers. And growing up
makes them so hungry. All day long they cry ‘cheep-cheep’,
asking for food.”
“I see!” said Mother.
“If we go, the whole place will be locked. And how will papa
and mama sparrows feed their babies?”
“Oh Nina,” cried Mother, giving her a big hug. “Is that why you
don’t want to go to the wedding? But that’s no problem at all.
We’ll leave the window open.”
“Oh, can we, Mother? Can we? Really?”
“Yes, yes. We’ll remove all your things from the room and lock
the door on the outside. So the house will be perfectly safe and
papa and mama sparrows can come and go freely, too. Just
“Mother, I don’t want to
go to the wedding.”
“But why?”
Nina said nothing.
Instead, two big tears
rolled down her cheeks.
Mother put her arms
around Nina. “Don’t cry,
my pet,” she said. "Why
don't you tell me what’s
bothering you?”
More tears rolled
down Nina’s cheeks.
“Mother,” she said,
“there’s a sparrow’s nest
on the bookshelf in my
room. And there are two
baby sparrows in the nest.”
