The Peacock – Our National Bird Summary in Hindi
मोर हमारा राष्ट्रीय पक्षी है। विश्व में इसकी कई प्रजातियाँ उपलब्ध हैं। पर भारत में, केवल नीले रंग का मोर ही पाया जाता है। दिखने में यह काफी सुन्दर होता है। नर मोर, मादा मोर से कहीं ज्यादा सुन्दर होता है। इसके बुबसूरत पंख सजावट के काम में आते हैं। यह पौधा, बीज, कीड़े-मकोड़े मौर साँप खाता है और यह मेढ़क और छिपकली को भी निगल जाता है। र्षाि ऋतु में जब आसमान पर बादल छाये होते हैं तब मोर अपने पंखों को लाकर खुश होकर, अत्यंत सुंदर नाच दिखाता है। यह दृश्य दुनिया के पर्वोत्तम दृश्यों में से एक होता है।

The Peacock – Our National Bird Hindi Translation of The Chapter
शिक्षक : शुभ प्रभात, बच्चो !
विद्यार्थीगण : [खड़े होते हुए] शुभ प्रभात, सर!
शिक्षक : (मोर की एक चित्र दिखाते हुए उनसे पूछता..है) क्या तुम इस पक्षी का नाम बता सकते हो?
विद्यार्थीगण : हाँ महाशय, यह मोर का चित्र है।
शिक्षक : बहुत अच्छे ! आज हम हमारे राष्ट्रीय पक्षी मोर के बारे में बातें करेंगे। मोर की विभिन्न प्रजातियाँ होती हैं । तुम्हें पता है, भारत में सिर्फ नीला मोर ही पाया जाता है। क्या तुम लोगों में से किसी ने इस पक्षी को देखा है?
रूबी : हाँ सर, मैं देखी हूँ। इस पक्षी को मैं पटना के चिड़ियाँघर में देखी हूँ। यह बहुत सुन्दर होता है।
शिक्षक : हाँ, तुम बिल्कुल सही कह रही हो। यह बहुत ही सुन्दर दिखता है। इसके पंख बहुरंगी होते हैं और इसका बड़ा अंडाकार शरीर चमकीला और रंग-बिरंगा होता है। इसका सिर छोटा-सा और इसकी गर्दन बेहद पतली होती है। नर मोर मादा मोर से बहुत ज्यादा सुन्दर होता है। यह काफी रंग-बिरंगा भी होता है। इसके पंखों की सुन्दरता अद्वितीय होती है और इन्हें हम सजावट के काम में लाते हैं।
अभिषेक : मैंने तो सुना है सर कि मोर साँप को भी खा जाता
शिक्षक : तुमने बिल्कुल सही सुना है। यह न सिर्फ साँपों को खा जाता है बल्कि यह पौधों, बीजों, फलों और कीड़े-मकोड़ों को भी खाता है। साथ ही यह मेढ़कों और छिपकलियों को भी निगल जाता है
इमरान। : सर, अपने गाँव में एक शादी के अवसर पर मैंने ‘मोर’ और ‘मोरनी’ का नाच देखा है।
शिक्षक : (स्वीकृति में सिर हिलाता है) सही बात है ! शादी के समारोहों में दो व्यक्ति ‘मोर’ और ‘मोरनी’ का भेष बनाकर नाच दिखाते हैं। किन्तु, वास्तव में मोर ज्यादातर बारिश के मौसम में नाचता है। जब आकाश बादलों से भरा हुआ होता है तो मोर अपने पंख फैलाकर के खुशी के मारे झूम करके नाचने लगता है। क्या तुममें से किसी में किसी मोर को बिना पंखों के देखा है ?
