Why do crows have a black color .
Have you ever wondered why crows are black in color? According to religious beliefs and legends, the color of the crow was white at first but due to the curse, it became black. Because according to Hinduism black color is considered inauspicious.Therefore, the crow is also considered a symbol of inauspicious, according to popular folk tales: - In ancient times there was a great sage. Who once sent a crow to search for the nectar and also warned that he would only find it and not to drink. Then the color of crows was white.
That crow started wandering in the forest mountain, river, drain in search of nectar everywhere, from this end of the earth to that end, after a long gap he finally found the nectar but when the crow reached near the nectar and saw the nectar, his intelligence was corrupted . He got a thought in his mind that if I should ownself drink nectar and will become immortal, so he drank the nectar, but when the sage thought about it and remembered his words, he was very sorry. But now he had drunk nectar . So the repenting crow returned to Maharishi. When the crow reached the sage. So Maharishi asked the what crow brother got amrit or came back in the same way. Ashamed crow said that O Munivar Amrit had got it, but seeing it, my intellect got corrupted. And I drank it myself, listening to it, the sage was filled with anger and said that even after stopping me, you drank the nectar. You have disobeyed me. Has violated my command. You will surely get its punishment.
I curse you that your color will turn black. Although you have drunk the nectar. Therefore you will not have any disease nor will you get old, so you will always receive premature death and the whole world will condemn you, only for 14 days of Shraddha, you will be respected and for the rest of the days you will only get reproach. Therefore, for 14 days of Shraddha, crows are treated as Pitra form(ancestral) and are fed .
Although I do not think that there is any truth in this story, but it is prevalent in public stories, people believe, so I have written it, what do you think, please tell me in the comments, thank you .
