SPACE

Compilation of a few experiences.

'Space' is word with a deep meaning. People use this word to convey that they need some time for themselves. If we need space so badly, don't animals need it too?
No matter how adorable or entertaining they might be, they need some time for themselves as well.


I visited Darjeeling this summer, and it was my priveledge that I was able to stay at the zoo facility. So as a tourist I was roaming around the vicinity, and I came across this family who was very excited to be around the animals. To my surprise, they were so excited that they literally started troubling them. A black panther was taking a nap, when they came next to his cage and started throwing stones and screaming 'Bagira' in order to wake him up. However, when I told them that the animal needs rest, they walked away giving me looks.


Dehradun, is my hometown. So I visit the place two or three times in an year. There is a beautiful mountainous stretch before one enters the capital (we love travelling by car) and there are tons of monkeys living there along with other animals. True, they are attracted to vehicles, and people love to feed them too, but with empty chips packets, or banana peels, rather throw left overs at them. Not only this, but children with catapults (literally) trouble them and their parents encourage them too.


And this is one thing we have all seen, animals are more or less sources of entertainment to some. Children wake dogs up when they are sleeping, people love to trouble birds sitting peacefully at places near them, some infact are so fascinated by animals on street - cows, that they'll go all out of the way to poke them with sticks and get their attention and this is not very cool.

True, they might love them but 'space' is necessary for everyone, for you, for me, for humans and for animals.

THE SAD TRUTH

This post is based on observation.

So on a post dated 17 July 2015, I introduced you all to Juliet, my beloved budgerigar. She stayed with us for 3 years and unfortunately left us on 14 September 2016.
Now for people, who share an emotional bond with animals, even the mention of their death turns out to be an emotional and a touchy topic. BUT BUT BUT, it seems that some do not understand that. Like sometimes, Juliet's death is taken as a joke for everyone else to laugh at.
Nobody can say anything about a person, but somehow an animal's death is very amusing . Agreed, everyone does not like animals, everyone cannot relate to them but making a mockery out of their demise does not make sense either, after all it was a life. The least you can do is not do it infront of the person whom it might effect, if you want to have a hearty laugh.
A small animal like a bird may not be that connectable to all but, for someone that animal may mean something.
These things do get me emotional, I start crying, only then people realise that they should stop. Why do we have to wait for someone to breakdown before we realise what we do is wrong? Why can't we take an animal's life seriously? Why can't we understand that they too are important?

They might not be anything to you, but for someone, they may be the world.

A STEP TOWARDS ACHIEVEMENT

AFTER A LONG TIME

The last blog I posted was in October and since then alot of things happened due to which I never really paid attention to this Blog, and I am sorry about that.

So a few months ago,  Dahsel and I conducted a few workshops in our school talking about stray animals. We picked up the students from the junior section as they are always curious and they can be connected to easily.




After a few general topics and discussions we asked them to post some pictures of their little friends along with them on our school website . And within a week,  we got an amazing response. 



Well, these are just a few. But due to their support, we now actually have taken a big step to help animals.  We have sent dogs for vaccinations, we have sent homeless little ones to loving families and of course had a tie with many animal shelters. 
This post is to appreciate all those who believed in our dream and who thought that if we all can work together, some innocents can actually live to see a better day.

THANKYOU
