BIRDS(Georgi Ovlov)
  • Brief Introduction To The Chapter
  • In this chapter, the writer tells how he became
    a great friend of birds and animals. One day he
    caught some grouse. Some of them got injured
    while they were being chased. The writer was
    proud that he had caught them without using a
    gun. But just then he saw a hawk pouncing upon a
    starling. The hawk caught the starling in its
    sharp paws and flew away with it. Its mate
    followed the hawk and tried to save the partener,
    but all in vain. This sight brought a complete
    change in the writer. Now his pride was changed
    into shame. He felt that he himself was no better
    than a hawk. He at

  • once went back home with the grouse. He and his
    wife nursed them for some days. When they were
    all right he took them to the forest He left them
    on the trees from where he had caught them. This
    one good deed led tomany others. Now ,
    whereever he found a bird or animal in trouble,
    he would feel great joy in giving it all help. In
    this story, he tells in detail how he saved some
    ducklings from a kite. Another time he treated a
    hodgehog that had been bitten badly by a sanke.
    He also saved a bear cub that was hanging
    dangerously from a crecked pine. The writer
    concludes by saying, One has only to start doing
    a good thing, and it at once leads to another
    good one.

How to Make a Candle
  • It is very easy to make a candle. First wax is
    broken into small pieces. Then water is boiled in
    a double boiler. Now the wax is put in the Top
    container of the double boiler to melt. It is
    made to boil to 21F. Care is taken not to over
    boil it because if heated more it starts smoking.
    If one wants colored candles, color is added at
    this stage. A wick is inserted inside a mould
    which is lubricated from inside. It is made sure
    that wick does not fall inside the mould by
    placing a rod across on its top. The wick is tied
    to it. Now the Melted wax is poured into it. The
    filled mould is put into a bucket containing cold
    water. The weight is removed and the wax is left
    to harden over night. Next Day the candle is
    gently pulled out. The candle is ready.
