March 20 is celebrated worldwide as World Sparrow Day. The tiny beige and brown bird has always been a native of Mumbai but has been steadily declining in numbers due to increasing urbanisation.
The Sparrows Shelter Foundation was on the streets supporting the 'save sparrow' theme on Monday. The movement started from Marine Lines and proceeded towards Worli. The procession commenced at 11 am and lasted till 4 pm. Present supporting the movement were Pramod Mane, Manager (Sparrows Shelter) along with other sparrow lovers.
A Maruti Omni van was converted into a dummy sparrow by decorating it with balloons. Everyone was amazed and couldn't avoid capturing the moment in every possible way.
