An unfortunate bird gets the help it needs

Fortunately, the same string was entangled on the building terrace. Immediately I sent my helper, Narain, to get to the terrace and try to pull up the hapless bird, gently. With a great patience, he pulled up the injured bird. With the help of scissors, we tried to disentangle the bird, by cutting the deadly thread.
We brought him to our flat, cleaned his badly bruised wings, applied the turmeric powder (Considered to to have medicinal values.) gave him the boiled rice and water. Placed the bird in a safe place hoping that it will be able to pull through the night.
In the morning we found our injured guest flew away, hopefully to safety. We hope those enjoying the hobby of kite flying will be careful, of not injuring the helpless birds too.
