Animal Cruelty in the Circus…

A great call to action !
We must realise that these evils aren’t really a talk of the past! Cruelty in form of child labour, domestic violence, female infanticide and animal abuse still exist!

thoughtsonblog

Animal abuse is used in many different forms all over our world today. The circus which is a source of entertainment for people, takes part in major animal cruelty today. It has been around for many years. Some may think that the cruelty towards animals is a nature of the past. The truth is that it is not. We may not want to face the fact that it still does exist. Animals are very disadvantaged over humans.  It is unfair for people to be so overpowering and think that they can do anything that they want, to a point where they take animals out of their natural habitat and force them to follow commands to entertain people is very wrong.

The Captain's Speech

this is everything
from the words i’ve been trying to say
to the one’s that won’t stick together
blown away like a feather
trying to survive the stormy weather
this is for all the good for you’s
and the other compliments no one will choose
so cut out the formalities and niceties
leave the cliches at the door and march right in
let’s begin
because when the sunglasses go down
something else goes down too
it will not make a sound for you
the rear-view mirror keeps it together
don’t worry about the cheap leather
all that reflects is a glimmer of light
beaming out at the skies like we’re in mid-flight
staring through the blinds at a blurry night
when every three it comes back to me
with all four closing in for more
just waiting to drop the five and feel alive
for the song that keeps repeating
it’s…

Hereby, I’ll request my fellow bloggers and followers to kindly read the following lines and comment on it please!

Today morning my mind revolved around a particular piece of news…

Delhi, the capital of India, is a highly polluted piece of land. And to control this state of pollution, Mr Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, has decided to launch a new campaign. He calls it the odd-even formula. According to this campaign, on odd dates vehicles ending with an odd number will be allowed to occupy the streets and on even dates, the even numbered vehicles will come out. This – according to him – would ensure pollution control. This formula would be executed from the 1st of january (for a trial period of 15 days).

While some people think it surely will be a success, there are people who question the sanity of the man who proposed the plan! They believe that this would promote crime, engender loads of problems and so on! There are some who believe Mr Kejriwal is trying turn Delhi into an arcade game where you can built your own city and play cityville(a popular facebook game) or something!

What do you think? Your comments are essential!
