The dog festival of China and Korea and our society.Summer season is the time of dog eating festival in China and South Korea. Though, media has caused it to decline in popularity, what is of interest is the great public numbers against it alone and not against non-vegetarian diet as a whole. The outcry against dog consumption makes one think of the innate hipocrisy of mankind today. It apparently is acceptable to boil lobsters alive for luxurious delicacies but its an obnoxious and inhuman act to do the same with dogs! This partiality isn't based on the phylogeny. Maybe, it comes down to being accustomed. Consumption of chicken, fish, pig, sea food, is acceptable because we are accustomed. The societal upbringing filters our logic and impairs us to realize that we are pointing a red handed finger. Right and wrong, black and white can never be defined. No culture is better than the other. We need an open mind unrestricted by prejudices to truly decide our course of action.
