Songs of the Urban Jungle

I have wished a bird would fly away,
And not sing by my house all day;
Have clapped my hands at him from the door
When it seemed as if I could bear no more.
The fault must partly have been in me.
The bird was not to blame for his key.
And of course there must be something wrong
In wanting to silence any song
~ A Minor Bird, Robert Frost
The versatile mynah bird sings louder amidst the noise and structures of the urban jungle. The mynah is the epitome of man’s complex relationship with humans, as has long been pondered by the Gond art from Madhya Pradesh.
But as Robert Frost questions- have we have forgotten how to hear the songs of nature?
Can you hear the chirps and melodies of our Gond Artist Kalabai's provocative mynah birds? Carry the chorus with this gorgeous hand-painted black wristlet. Can you hear the birds calling you forth to join in their reverie?
