The apartment security guard was chasing away something with a stick. I parked my car and asked him what. He said 'there is a danagerous pakshi that brings daridhara'. I went and looked at the tree beside - wow, its a snow white owl. I was in a wow state still as I am seeing an owl for the first time. It looked a puppet toy and blinking its eyes. It had some black spots on its belly not sure if its a pattern or infection. I clicked it posed. I moved, clicked and it posed. People said it cannot see - but I think it can see as black and white. Some believe, the white owl brings bad news. Some say that is a vehicle of Goddess Lakshmi and hence brings wealth and prosperity. Some say its a spirit guide. I do not know but I felt its good for me. Of all I heard, I take the White Owl as my spirit guide - someone who reminds me of the intuitive powers.
