Listen to the Birds


FastCompany has an entry about no for most part few animals were killed in Tsunami. Actually, I heard of the ‘story’ from a friend of a friend of a friend which of cos I dismissed it as just another urban legend but perhaps there are some truth in that.

But more interesting is a link to another story from one of the commenters about how five aboriginal tribes in India survived the Tsunami by listening to the birds.

The tribals get wind of impending danger from biological warning signals like the cry of birds and change in the behavioural patterns of marine animals. They must have run to the forests for safety. No casualties have been reported among these five tribes,” ASI Director Dr V R Rao told PTI today.

It could be another urban legend but heck, it is pretty cool. And God bless them.
