The video, posted by Susanta Nanda, an IFS officer, has gone viral, with people immensely amused by the bird’s human-like actions and clear pleasure in escaping the scorching heat. In the video, a man is holding up a water hose to a pigeon on the hood of a car, as the pigeon drinks water from the hose and also sits patiently as it is being showered with water.
The video has garnered over 18K views and has hundreds of comments from people relating to the bird.
Netizens Feel Kinship with the Poor Pigeon

One user commented, “Really fascinating.” While another commented, “So wonderful, really blessed attitude towards birds and animals.”
Other users commented on the water benign wasted, with one user saying, “Nice ! But how much water is being wasted here, instead they could keep the same amount of water in a bowl and more than one bird could have benefited. Just a thought !!!”
