Soon to come-Animals teachers, humans studentsMy thoughts are agitated for last many months about the eroding positive values and exceeding negative and destructive nature of human beings. This is because of the streams of bad news coming in media. This thread is prompted by the two recent news reports that I briefly narrate below.
In one report, which is still under investigation, a woman allegedly disposed her newborn child at a waste dump. Recovery of the infant's dead body led to the case under investigation. As there was no clue, it took many months and DNA tests on all suspects, which led to arrest of a woman who confessed to the crime. Reportedly she did this to live happily with her paramour. The case appears very complicated and may take more time to come to conclusion. Another report was about a few men hanging a dog with a fishing hook and torturing it to death. It was ironical that someone shot the video, but not bothered to rescue the dog.
Same day I saw a video clip where in a Monkey is seen fondling and kissing an old woman laid up due to illness. It was reported that the old woman was giving food to this Monkey every day , and not seeing her for past few days, it came all the way to her home, found her laid up and showed its affection and sympathy by patting her, hugging her, kissing her and left after a while.
Sometime earlier I saw a video clip of 'Heroic monkey: Monkey saves 'dying' friend at train station in India" Ironically here also humans shot the video, but not bothered to rescue the animal, but the concerned fellow animal saved its life.
There are many such news reports coming continuously nowadays.
So it makes me feel that humans are very fast losing their innate human kindness and other finer sentiments. A day may come very soon (God forbid that) when there will not be any kindness, humanness, fellow affection and other human values and sentiments left in humans.
Our academic institutions may have to appoint animals from the jungle to teach human values (rather natural animal values then) in our schools and colleges. Our ancestors are being proved very early-Kaliyug is showing its characteristics.
