The ‘Real’ Beast
I wanted to do this post the day I read about there are 1411 tigers left. But somehow it got delayed. But here I am going to share what I have in my mind.
First thing, I don’t think tigers or any other animal can survive with the kind of rate we are cutting down the trees and deforesting. Yes, this world is turning out to be hell for them and nothing will save them. Oh.. did I said that?? Sorry then. There are things that can be done to save them but nobody will do that. Nobody is going to listen to the things like the emission of CO2 should be reduced or cutting down of trees is really bad. And no nation will give up their developmental plans to save a silly thing called Earth in their proper mind. Do they??? What is it anyway?? Something that doesn’t make them bothers for sure.
Second thing, the biggest mistake done by god or happened out of evolution is creating an animal called man, with thinking ability. It can think wise also but what’s the use of it? Its thoughts are eviler that it thinks that the world is belonged to it. So what it had done?? Destroyed a lot of other species and keeps on doing it. Out of all the idiotic things it had done, one thing I can’t understand is how it claims that some other living thing as it’s property. Are the cows, goats or any other animal deserved or created to be tied down and keep giving milk to humans?? Is that their purpose on this Earth??
Another thing is Zoos. How one can devoid the freedom of the animals and lock them up there like some prisoners?? Are they born with a destiny to eat the dead meat and show themselves to the human visitors?? Don’t they deserve a better purpose than ending up in jail?? A zoo may be heaven(In most of the cases, its not)… but then none can replace the freedom to live in their way. If we have to see an animal we have to go its home, forest, to see it. Not by put them in cages. As they are not welcomed here in country, we also not welcomed there and should restrain from going there.
Our laws are really partial. It doesn’t value a life. It values whose life it is. A human’s life is considered as far more sacred than any other animal. But I don’t see any difference between any lives.
There is a documentary film called ‘The Cove’, I have seen last week. It talked about the slaughtering and capturing of the Dolphins in Japan. The slaughtering is done in one of the cruelest way by driving them to shores and then using sharp weapons to kill it. Before killing them, some dolphins are selected by the trainers for the organizations like Sea World(which is recently in the news for the death of its worker by a Whale) to make a show out of them and earn money.
I do not pity for the death of the loss of a worker for that company… but I pity for that trainer’s lost life. I can’t blame the whale for sure. Because it’s not its job to entertain human kind. It has born to explore the sea/Ocean, survive when it’s young and dominate when it’s stronger and again back to survival when it becomes old. But what these organizations like Sea World have the authority to capture them, train them in a environment totally alien to them and then making them to do stunts. Is there not any decent job available on Earth to earn that damn money???
There is a trainer called Ric O Barry who has started this kind of thing and he really feels about that now and shows every kind of action against the dolphin slaughtering and capturing. One thing he said really moved me. There is a flipper kind of dolphin which he trained suicides (yes it can control its breathing) itself due to the unbearable conditions. So is that not a crime??
We can’t classify an animal whether its a beast or its human by its looks. We can only do that by their behavior and I think many humans are beasts. There is difference between killing an animal for food and for other things which includes for fun, its skin, teeths, experiments, etc…. Because by the former only the world functioned and functions till now. And by the other its getting destroyed.
We have developed an environment on this Earth which is falsely believed as best for mankind, which makes the animals to scare and die. But surely like this animals, we, the social animal will become extinct from this mother Earth as soon as possible. And I am sure about it. I hope its gets delayed with our little sensible actions. Lets take some little actions like reducing the use of papers, re-using the plastics, reducing carbon emissions and in whatever things we can.
There is dialogue in Matrix said by agent Smith, a machine, which tells about our nature clearly:
I’d like to share a revelation that I’ve had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you’re not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and we are the cure.
So starting from tiger I diverted, sorry, I didn’t touched that topic at all, here is a way we can show that we care for tigers. Just log into this site, Save our tigers. Join the roar and spread the word. You can get to know more about from AK’s post on this. Lets hope that something good happens for this one of the beautiful creature of Earth through this campaign.
PS: Me too did some cruel things to dragon fly, butterflies before considering them as a another worthy life during my childhood days. But not anymore.
