Peacocks have been a wondrous bird of interest to me for many years. A gaudy but supremely elegant bird. Many myths and legends have been told about the peacock.
I picked this up at the Culture Spot: India’s national bird, the peacock, is woven into the country’s cultural fabric, a symbol of beauty, love and fertility.
Legend has it that the peacock, originally a plain, brown bird, spread his tail to hide the god Indra from the demon king Ravana. To show his gratitude, Indra bestowed him with brilliant plumage. In folklore, the “eyes” of the peacock’s tail are said to be the tears of the sun-god’s daughter, who married the peacock for his beauty but found him to be a vain, shallow husband. :o)
