Animal Rights - Be aware of them.

“panjaradoLu nookabahudu giLiyanu….
nUki suridarEnu rAshi kALanu….
tinnuvudoMdE guriye bALige….?
adara bALu baliye namma lIlege!!”

- N S Lakshminarayana Bhatta
(meaning : We cage and feed a parrot stomach-full. Is that all its purpose, eating stomach-full? Its life is ruined for our happiness)!!

“The truth is I love being alive. And I love feeling free. So if I can't have those things then I feel like a caged animal and I'd rather not be in a cage. I'd rather be dead. And it's real simple. And I think it's not that uncommon.”

- Angelina Jolie
(Can we stay an hour in a cage? Ask a criminal in jail)!!

“Contrary to what most people say, the most dangerous animal in the world is not the lion or the tiger or even the elephant. It's a shark riding on an elephant's back, just trampling and eating everything they see.”

- Jack Handy
(Anything explains better?)


“Until one has loved an animal a part of one's soul remains unawakened.”

- Anatole France
(We need to get that Animals are a part of God's own creation, just like us)

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”

- Mahatma Gandhi
(Greatest quotation from a great man)


Now….. You might ask me ‘WHY this post’.
Because, I came across the following today morning.



I was just thinking what purpose are these snakes served, their jaws are snatches, they are made puppets, raise hoods when the master(ess) wants, and withdraw when they don’t want!! I strongly oppose using animals for our purpose. It becomes everyone’s responsibility to educate these snake charmers about the animal rights and provide them a rehabilitation that will call them to stop harming the animal.

“Animal-rights advocates remind us of this admonition: The ways in which people treat animals will be reflected in how people relate to one another.”
- William Greider

Obviously from the single celled amoeba to the great blue whale, all the animals should live, the world was not created as one set of animals alone ( read as mankind).

cheers

As they say,

ಪ್ರಾಣಿಗಳೊಳು ದಯೆಯಿಡು
ನೋಯಿಸಿದರೆ ನೋವಾಗುವುದವಕೆ

Khud jiyo, auron ko bhi jeene do...yehi to hai ye jindagi ka waasta, tumhe aman aur shanti ka waasta..
these are the lines of a song we used to sing in school.
