Stepping out in blistering hot this summer is an arduous task to do. Waves of heat directly hit your face like that from a furnace. And during a weather like this, my heart goes out to those who have to work under the direct sun and do their job with much commitment. Among them is the traffic police force, who are always at their feet, come sun or rain.

And one such traffic cop from Bengaluru was nursing a pigeon. In the picture that is being shared widely on social media, the official who is dressed in uniform can be seen holding a pigeon in his hand. According to the tweet, the traffic cop who was positioned at Commercial Street was helping the bird which was hurt with some water.

The tweet reads, “A good Samaritan cop of #NammaBengaluru helping out a hurt and thirsty pigeon in Commercial Street. He went on to feed it some water[sic].” The tweet was retweeted by Lokesh, a constable who coordinates the social media unit of the Bengaluru City Police. Tweeting he said, “What really matter is being kind to every kind not only mankind. [sic]”

While Bengaluru is known for its soothing weather, this summer did not spare the city either. The southern city is equally reeling in the sweltering heat with temperature touching 40 degree Celsius last month. We can too do our bit in helping birds live through the summer with a little effort.  Try keeping a bowl of water in your balcony, near the window or anywhere from where birds can drink. Many sparrows and other small birds die in this harsh weather due to lack of availability of water to them.
