All of us have heard of the two of them.
2 for luck, 1 for nought, and it goes on somewhat. Cant recall. But the birds bring back memories. Of school. Of the hills of Mussoorie.
School was choc-a-bloc with turtle doves, and glee predominated on sighting a couple of them. Of course, catching them in odd numbers had us scampering for cover, literally. Oh the naivety of youth! Ultimately , there'd be no place to run to, coz the doves were everywhere.
Dunno if they brought luck or not, but they definitely gave memories to swear by, for the rest of my life.
