“One movement, one nation, all human!
Today, I am going to pick up one social issue, which is generally not even considered in our society as a lot of us are not involved in such acts but some people are.
I am from Chandigarh, and currently staying in Ahmedabad. So, there was this stray dog which entered my residential area in Chandigarh two months back. People tried to catch him, called the dog catchers, etc. But why?
For one simple reason, he was stray. The kids in the area nurtured the dog everyday, provided him food and water, as it was weak. The kids had even collected funds to get the dog vaccinated so that people are not scared to keep it in the area. But today, I got a call about the mishap that took place.
The dog was tied up by men with a tree using a rope, hit with lathis and what not, this insane act was recorded by the children who went to save his life but were prohibited and pushed away, and their video was deleted.
The dog was in deep bruises and almost lifeless, when the police arrived and with a half hearted belief to this, its shameful for me to state, that the police beat the dog too. And see we call ourselves HUMAN.
Do we rule the planet? Or are we just to superficial in our acts towards the society? Its a matter of shame to human race, this act must be brought into notice of all people in and out of Chandigarh. The dog was finally taken in the sack, and there is no single clue of its alive or death.”
