Sarla liked to watch birds fly.
One day, during science class, she looked out of the window and saw an eagle gliding in the sky.
How happy the bird must be! She also liked to see planes flying.
“Here, what’s your name? Should you not be looking at the board?” asked the new teacher in Sarla’s class.
Sarla got up hastily and said, “Sorry Madam, I was watching an eagle. I wish we could fly like a bird, or
like an aeroplane….”
“What is your name?” “Sarla.”
“Oh how nice! Do you know that Sarla was the name of the first Indian women pilot too?
My name, Hamsa, means a swan.
Swans are one of the largest flying birds, you know,” said the teacher.
“You must spend some time in the library, Sarla.
I’m sure there are many books about birds and flights, and machines that fly like aeroplanes.”
Over the next few days, Sarla happily learnt a lot about birds, and about aeroplanes.
