"THE MONSOON BIRD"
This species is widely mentioned in ancient Indian poetry as the "CHATAK PAKSHI ". According to Indian mythology, it has a beak atop its head and it thirsts for the rains. The poet Kalidasa used it in his epic "Meghadoota" as a metaphor for deep yearning and this tradition continues in literary works.
