My Neighbour’s Cat

Things to learn …. you can’t bypass mother nature.

It takes immense efforts to love someone in true sense. Well, you don’t need to love someone to understand love itself. May be nature has designed  her children such way. Sometime it looks brutal and sometime beautiful.

So what if you have careless and heartless neighbours. And just like any other day, I was checking my plants and I saw a dead kitten, very tiny. Next to my plants. I was scared and looked around. Then I saw my neighbour’s cat sitting few meters aways, in a corner, much in pain.

She was almost unconscience, unable to move, exhausted. So there was no point to disturb her. I called my neighbour. They came, they saw and they left. Got the kitty some food for next two days while she moved around.

My Neighbour’s Cat

It takes immense efforts to love someone in true sense. Well, you don’t need to love someone to understand love itself. May be nature has designed  her children such way. Sometime it looks brutal and sometime beautiful.

So what if you have careless and heartless neighbours. And just like any other day, I was checking my plants and I saw a dead kitten, very tiny. Next to my plants. I was scared and looked around. Then I saw my neighbour’s cat sitting few meters away, in a corner, much in pain.

She was almost unconscience, unable to move, exhausted. So there was no point to disturb her. I called my neighbour. They came, they saw and they left. Got the kitty some food for next two days while she moved around.

And then she left after three days. But she regularly visited. She used to sit near the plants where her kitten was dead. She used to looked at it as if the kitten is still there. This kept happened for another week.

Then she was back to normal routine. Hardly any visit anymore.

And one day looking at her while her gaze was fixed at her imaginary kitten, I realized that it takes immense pain for an animal to survive and to reproduce. Every living thing including humans had gone through and still goes through the pain of evolution.

Evolution. The pain we as children of nature must bear.

But what about the pain we cause, artificial evolution, to satisfy our platter.

Every piece of meat on your table has gone through same pain which your cat or dog might suffered. Difference, farming isn’t nature’s idea.

You have right to do what you believe is correct.

What if humans forced to give birth to specific no. of children to fulfill war demands. What if abortions are banned. Absurd and stupid question.😼 Because we’re humans and somehow most of us believe that Earth and its belongings are tailor-made for us.

We are not different or above from any living entity on this planet. We are part of this complex system.

That cat has reminded me ancient wisdom. Your karma decides your next life.

 

S.Anand

 

P.S. – Cat is fine and she is very brave. Not afraid of any Dog.

Glass slippers

Glass Slippers

glass-slipper

Its midnight

not the night of celebration.

Take the stairs and

runaway

because those are the sounds of cruel.

Healing deception of poison ivy.

You’re the knight

and you’re the prince.

Die like a warrior

and live for the war.

Don’t look for glass slippers

as they are crushed

at the gates of realm.

Sanatan Fabric

Bilva patra or Bael patra are the part of Sanatan Dharma since forever. Month of Shravan is specially important for all Sanatan believers and so does the Bilva.

Rudra’s love for bilva started when a nishadh offered them to him. Bilva became part of Sanatan traditions and household. There are certain rules and norms for picking up the Bael patra. Just like the rules to offer them.

Such rich traditions over many thousands years woven the delicate fabric of Indian society. There are special communities which used to be picked up Bilva and delivered it to all people. In exchange they have been given grains and food on daily or monthly basis. Some of them also paid.

This community still following the Anaadi traditions. I came across one of the person who still pursue this job. This is his probably 10th generation. He don’t take money on daily basis but monthly payment or food. He is not rich or middle class but he does his work like worship.

People and communities like him are part of ancient fabric of Sanatan dharma. It’s human nature to form socialize and form groups. They can be form on many basis. From specific coffee lover’s club to specific color lover’s society. Humans like to attach themselves to some groups which they can identify with own traits.

Sanatan dharma is the Anaadi system that reflects and nourish the human traits of social connect. Which makes an unparalleled system and invisible economy which helped the Indian subcontinent to survive and flourish despite the most invasion in human history.
