AAM Animal Party

Sunday, January 19, 2014 , 18 Comments

"Oh My god! Why this human fight so much? They fight and blame us". complained the wise cat to her neighbor monkey.

"You are correct. They fight like sillies [a trait only these human may have] throw spanner, curses, back bite, spew venom and say politics is no 'monkey business' it sure is". Said the ageing monkey while handling a fresh Chapati off stove to his feline friend.

"You bet. They do all miscreants and call it our names. what harm do we do to them? It is them who cuts our jungles, spoils our rivers, pollutes environment and still call themselves superior" remarked the angry tiger who just read the news that barely 1000 nos of his relatives are alive all over the world. He continued with how he met the poor cow who was helpless to feed her own calf as these so called human beings have taken all her milk and she is left with none to feed the little one. To make matter worse they inject some painful injections in her body so that they can extract as much of it. She was as sad that she turned to lion to eat her up so that she can end her painful life and her daily struggle to survive amid the torturous injections, lack of proper living conditions and being fed on the garbage that stinks on its own name.

If you are wondering what is happening than I must tell you that it was a winter afternoon when all the animals gathered baring their afternoon siesta to discuss the current affairs of Jungle and beyond.

The tiger was joined by his wife -tigress who was returning from the elephant' house after paying him visit. The elephant was badly manhandled by his owner who used the speechless animal to perform in circus without caring much about well being. It was not just that the elephant was alone in this suffering, even the king of jungle was not spared. The parrot had strict objection for his wings being clipped by humans. "How would they feel if I take away their rights to walk" asked the bird.

"Cruelty of human is something not unique. They have been meting it on us from time innuendo. It is high time that we must all unite and fight against the tyranny. Silence often taken as weakness" said all animal in unison.

It is then, it was decided that they will form a union and have a their representative to take their pleas to Minister of Animal Welfare- Menka Aandhi. As the voting process began few animals like dogs, cats, parrots etc who just returned back from human captivation developed a feud over the process. So much that they started throwing each other name and pulling it down. They called each other- you are Sam Jhoothmalani, Maul Aandhi, Medu-vada-appa and what not. The bear, the Rhino and the spider had a fight wherein the former accused latter that he is like that political minister Gassy Barood who eats his own spouse. The fight heated up until the Lion King let out a roar and stopped them. When he could not bear, he summoned his courtier bear and asked him what is ging and why the animals are fighting for nothing?

The bear grinned and replied- They are just "Being Human"
