Man’s Best Friend – The Canines!
True! Dogs are man’s best friend. The canines, have been very faithful to man since time immemorial. They are always there for you when you come home after a hard day’s work. Licks you all-round, jumps on you and waits patiently to be nurtured. Wagging its tail and with its tongue out, he sits there admiring at its master and dreaming as to when his share of food will be delivered. Once justice has been done to its food, he quietly sneaks away from his master and leaves him peace. After a break of ten minutes he is back nudging his master and pleads him to be taken out for a walk. If he is not potty trained you had it. The evening passes by and its time for his next meal, all done, he prefers to go for another stroll and is happy that his master is good enough to listen to his calls. All is well till he is at home and under the guidance of the master. What about his cousins on the streets? I pity them as they have nobody to take care. The so called animal rights activists are busy framing rules and regulations, spending all the funds collected from the bigwigs for what nobody knows. Where do all the funds collected go? Why are there so many dogs on the streets? What are the municipalities and the Government doing about them? Are they been vaccinated? Where are all the promises made? Does any body have an answer to these and many other questions? These, may be just simple and one can do away with these.
But imagine your child is walking on the streets, happily and with a wonderful life ahead. Her dreams of reaching her goals, reaching the sky and feeling it, touching the water and feeling the freshness in it and getting the feel of swimming in a lake, river or the pool, growing up to be an example to the many who have not even had a chance to live their life, her passions, her playfulness, her innocence, her thoughts…and then she is found on the head lines of the news paper the next morning to know that she is being attacked by some twenty beastly canines laying on the road with a pool of blood…This is India, the land that boasts of knowledge, technology, rich in minerals, densely populated, poverty ridden, indiscipline not to forget the politics and the rulers of the nation. This is true. Children have been attacked by dogs on the streets very often. We are helpless. Please help us.
