Today, 80 Nargis orphans are gathered at a monastery for their monthly get-together. The children are learning to play a game called “Chickens and Eagles”. Young volunteers divide the children into groups of three and tell them to pretend to be “chickens”. Each time they hear, “Eagles are coming,” the little “chicks” quickly run into the arms of their "parents". Those who do not run back in time will be caught by the “eagles”.
