If I were a bird
If I were a bird, I would like to be one of the small species, cute and beautiful.
I would love to be a tiny maina who is beautiful, tiny and above all, it is a bird that man can keep as a pet. I would love to stay with men, study their ways and enjoy their company. This I would be able to do with men as, God has given the maina a power of speech just like men. It talks like a human being, has a sweet voice and, above all also has a great capacity to learn whatever it is taught.
If I were to be a bird, I would like my life to be a beautiful blend of freedom of flying in the high skies and the love and care given by man. I see advantages in both and find it difficult to make a choice.
My ambition as a bird would be able to fly high as high can be, like any other bird. This would give me an insight into what all exists in the atmosphere. I would also be able to assess first hand, the life of birds as a community, the advantages and the disadvantages they live with. I would share my experiences with my kin and understand the difficult ways of life. I would attain knowledge of lives of birds big and small as I would move with them and conversing with them while flying high in the air, or sitting on trees with my other colleagues.
Though I would love all this, at the same time I would love to become a pet in a nice family. This family would keep me closed in a cage lest I fly off. Here, in the family I would learn to be controlled and restricted. It would be no doubt a punishment of sorts to be tied down in a cage but I feel so happy imagining the love and care I would get from each member of the family that would adopt me.
Here, at home, I would be served food in a platter, water in a dish in a right royal style. Aha! what a life that could be for me. Hunting for food and being frightened of bigger birds attacking me would not be a care for me. I would be a loved one of many – what a wonderful feeling it gives.
While living with a family I would

    The film and the original written copy of a story always have modifications. Producers typically do not like to make the movie exactly like the book because they want to put their own views and concepts into their piece. Even though almost all producers add more drama and conflict tothe plot to make it more appealing to their target of viewers, this does not mean that they cannot stick to the core theme of the story. Although Maurier’s “The Birds” and Hitchcock’s The Birds have similar plot structures, the short story version is more entertaining because of lack of romance, more concise beginning, and ambiguous ending.…

    I want to be happy, to help others, and to make a positive impact on others. I would love to be a motivational speaker because it's easier to change a person’s life with your personal stories and words, rather than forcing them to do things. I want to tell troubled teenagers and kids that it's never too late; you can be something in life despite what you've been through or what others may think, say, and feel about you. That's my biggest goal in life, to give others the same opportunity I was given. To show that second chances are real. I would also love to be an Athletic Trainer or Firefighter. Regardless of the path I take, I know that whatever I do in life, I will make a difference. I feel like with me being an Athletic Trainer I can give an athlete a second chance at the respected sport they love. I could also inspire people to do more than just play the sport they love; I could inspire them to go out and make a difference. Being a Firefighter I could save lives. I would play a key role in the community, giving back more than I…
