Mr Nori’s Predicament

1st October 2022 Dr Beena

Hello everyone😊😊. I hope you will enjoy the little story about this family. I painted this picture from a photo of Mr Chiam’s hens and a single cockerel. They were all feeding from a single tray. I thought, what a lovely family. Hence the inspiration for my paintingπŸ˜„πŸ˜„.

Mr Nori is the rooster on the left-hand side of the painting. His wife Suri is the beautiful chick on the top left-hand side chatting with Mora. Mora is from a different breed of white chicksπŸ™‚. The more petite brownish yellow chick is the daughter of Mr Nori and Suri. Her name is Surina, and the two chicks near her are her daughters, Merina and Purina.

In this picture, I see aspects of their lives akin to ours😊. Mr Nori seems hesitant, appearing perplexed about what his wife Suri is talking to Mora. Suri and Mora seem to have an animated conversation pleasantly. Any thoughts on that conversation? Maybe a discount sale is going onπŸ€”πŸ€”? Or could it be a hen laid strange coloured eggs? Surina is focused, checking the food for her daughters. She is not distracted by the animated conversation. Somehow, this picture reminded me of how we humans behave. In a shopping mall, men usually are never interestedπŸ˜’ unless it is something they wish to buy. Women love to shop, especially when there is a bargain or saleπŸ˜„πŸ˜„. Surina appears like a new mother who would love to purchase exciting stuff for her daughters😍😍.

I would love to hear from you. This story is purely my imagination; as you know, no rooster can be monogamous😎. Many of you commented that it is unfair that one husband has three wives in my painting. Hence, I wrote this story of Mr Nori, who is monogamousπŸ˜‰. In addition, many of you could relate to this painting as our grandmothers had chickens running around, creating noise and mayhemπŸ˜’πŸ˜€. As a young girl, I was petrified because the bigger hens and roosters loved to chase me😒😒. One of you had commented why there are only two little chicks. My reply was that because of inflation, Surina decided it was better to have less than more chicksπŸ˜…πŸ˜‰.

I hope you can share your thoughts here on your adventures with hens and roosters. Maybe, some thoughts on Mr Nori’s predicament would be interesting😊. Till the next musings, have fun having wild musingsπŸ˜ŠπŸ™.

  1. Beena, I enjoyed reading the story about Mr Nori & family….loved the way your imagination went wild with their story!!!

  2. Great interesting imaginative story of chicken family.
    Should be a topic of story telling for kids in school.
    Somehow I do find some fun in keeping a few chickens in the farm to create some noise and have the organic eggs for morning breakfast.
    Mr. Nori is the best alarm clock that never fail to wake me up early in the morning.

    1. Hi Chiam

      Thank you for sending me the photo of your brood. Glad that you enjoyed the story; even though it is meant to be funny, but I tried to describe some of the adult human behaviour throughout that story. Haha, hope I can continue to write such stories:)

  3. This is a beautiful piece of creation by Beena.The story shows how she has given wings to her imagination.Congrats.
