It all began 10 years ago. Sekhar, the Birdman from Chennai, is a camera mechanic by profession. But a decade ago he started scattering grains near his house to feed the many birds in the vicinity. Soon squirrels and other creatures would stop by to enjoy their meal.
Then one fateful day when the Tsunami hit Chennai, he saw a pair of parrots sitting on the parapet. Since then Sekhar's house has become a daily spot for a staggering 2,000 parrots. On some days he feeds a prattle of 4,000 parrots.
