July 24. “Button, it is shameful, to say the least, how low human beings can stoop to.”
“What have you discovered now?”
“It will make your skin crawl when I tell you what I read in today’s DNA.”
“Animal activists from various NGOs observed Thursday as World Bull Day to stop the slaughter of calves that are slaughtered so the milk meant for them can be bottled for human consumption.”
“I wish you hadn’t told me.”
“Around 80, 000 calves are killed every year in this city alone for this purpose. Two-week old calves are also used for producing leather products. There are other gory stuff I don’t wish to mention.”
“Don’t human beings have hearts? Don’t they have a conscience? Like you said, how low can they stoop to?”
“I have no words left. On the other hand, an NGO, The Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organisations (FIAPO), has written a protest letter to the Chief Minister, Shri Ashok Chavan, to bring bull racing to his notice with the idea of banning this cruel sport in rural Maharashtra. Button, are you there?”
“I am. It’s just that I am terribly upset with all these news.”
P.S. By the way, today is National Mosquito Day!
Come again. What does that mean? Does it mean they have a national day for pests?
