It’s been a week the Uttarayan festival ends in Gujarat but the after effects are still there. The birds still find hard to open their wings as the kite strings left on the electric wires traps them.
An incident occurred in Raopura area of Vadodara on Saturday where a pigeon got stuck and hanged above 60 feet from the ground. The deadly kite string tangled in the wings of the bird.
The incident happens near the crowded Usha Kiran building where the pigeon was hanging above 60 foot from the ground. The fire brigade team rushed the spot and rescued the pigeon.
Every year after Uttarayan the GEB starts their drive to burn the strings stuck in the electric wires. This time the drive is yet to start and as a result the birds are bearing the brunt of negligence.
