The perishing population of sparrows in Mumbai is enough to justify why we need to take action. 

While this petition does not emphasise blaming any smoke-spewing factories and balcony-less, glass slab laden skyscrapers, which are indeed, primarily responsible for displacing sparrows, it definitely focuses on inaction of city dwellers and their carefree attitude. 

This is about what WE can do, not what ‘he’ or ‘she’ didn’t do. 

So here’s our To-Do list:- 

  1. If you live in an apartment, keep little plastic bowls full of water in all your windows/balconies and keep them well-taped to grills, if you’ve got them. keep bowls filled to the brim so that they can be spotted.
  2. If you’ve also got potted plants, add some dry leaves and fruit peel to the pots, which would serve as manure as well as populate harmless worms, which will be picked by sparrows and also serve as organic manure for your plants.
  3. Along with water bowls, keep more bowls full of peas,corn or other edible seeds, in all your balconies/windows as well as one of your plant pots. You can add dry flower petals to the pots to attract sparrows.
  4. Apart from food and water, here’s another bowl-thing. Keep shallow bowls half filled with water, which would function as water-bath for sparrows and keep their bodies cool during afternoons.
  5.  Spread awareness and encourage your people in other cities to do this.Share this message. I know it sounds clichè but I really mean it here. 
  6. Lastly, back to morals. Plant trees. Again, a  clichè, but this is to create some room for bird nesting.
