How did the sparrows mourn the death of grandmother ? How does it reflect on the bond shared between the grandmother and the sparrows ? Substantiate with suitable examples from the text .

Dear student,

As the grandmother's body lay dead and wrapped in a red shroud, thousands of sparrows sat scattered on the floor all over the verandah and into the room right up to where the body lay. There was no chirping and when the narrator's mother fetched some bread to give to the birds feeling sorry for their loss,they did not take notice of the bread crumbs. As grandmother's corpse was carried out, they quietly flew away. This tells us about how deeply they had been affected by the death of their beloved friend. They shared a very special bond with the grandmother, which was above their hunger for food.
