We share this planet with of different species, which we collectively call animals. The word animal is used in a sense that, anything that is not human is an animal. Even humans are animals which many of us have forgotten. For once we too were the same kind of two legged animals.
The life of we humans no longer revolves around, hunting, forging and to protect ourselves from wild. We have definitely come a long way. We are more worried about the phone signal strength, laptop battery, what others are up to, how to reach a position higher than our peers.
Animal compassion is something which cannot be forced on to others. There are people who genuinely love animals, while others don’t give a damn. Its up to them to decide.
Here in India, there are numerous street dogs on every Indian street. People pass by these dogs everyday lost in their thoughts. Imagine a dog run over by a car, what would most people do. Ignore, especially if it happens to be a street dog. No compassion. It’s a street dog. It was meant to die. This attitude does not change.
There are people and organisations which have come up to protect these innocent animals and other animals who call the streets their home.More efforts and participation must be put in to bring these situations in the light. Its not enough.
