A heart-warming photo of a little bird on the arm of an NDRF personnel was posted on Twitter by Satya Pradhan, the Director General of the National Disaster Response Force. The lovely photo, taken during the rescue operations after Cyclone Tauktae, was posted with #EveryLifeMatters. The chick was displaced from its nest after trees were uprooted and branches broken by the monster cyclone at several places in Gujarat, which bore the brunt of the devastating winds and torrential rain.
