From the Times of India:

Chunmun the sparrow comes on a horse to wed Gauriya

Agra: Villages in India, away from the pamphlets and press conferences of NGO activism, have always done their bit for the environment — in their unique, rustic but effective ways.

Mohanpur village in Banda district of UP, for instance, organised a rather grand wedding for Chunmun and Gauriya, with people in thousands attending the merry event. Chunmun even rode a horse like a dulha. Just that because he is a sparrow someone had to hold him fast in the palm of the hand and put him atop the horse, and hold him fast to his seat.

Residents of Mohanpur, who are known in these dusty parts of UP‘s Bundelkhand for their love of both flora and fauna, say that in the union of Chunmun and Gauriya lies a larger message about the depleting number of sparrows and the need for their protection. The tiny birds, in fact, have almost disappeared from India’s cities.
