Response to an article about animal rights....!
I like the way in which Richa Bhattarai wrote in her article about eating meat. I am a vegetarian for about a year. I left to eat meat coz I wanted to deduce the percentage of killing animals. This seems impossible to avoid the killing of animals by just avoiding eating meat but help a little bit. She has written that she didn't feel any mercy upon animals when she had meat at home. But want to ask that is she made of iron or stone ? If she is human she mustn' t forget that she is too an animal. I think she must be fully against of Maoists actions of killing innocent people and she must be too against of all kind of violence. But the way she presents the view of her mind in the newpaper seems that she too has a virtual vampire resideing inside her who definitley wants to taste the blood of innocent aniamls. If it is not like that then why she doesn't feel any kind of mercy upon the innocent buffaloes shooted by people. She may think that our ancestors are carnivorous so why should we avoid eating meat? We must not think like that being the people of 21st century because we are now much more educated, sophisticated and higly developed then our meat loving ancestors. In the article I somewhat realise that she feels proud because she is non-veg. Because I have never seen people who argue that eating meat is good from any direction rather that avoiding meat.
Writing all these things may feel that I hate non-veg but it is n't. I mean to say that we must just try follow the path shown by Buddha. The path of non-violence. Violence means not only killing of human by human but also of animals too because they have also equal rights to live in this earth as of human beings. It is very wrong idea to think that being a super animal we can do whatever we want to animals. I think she feels sorry for the human behaviour upon animal from some points but she cannot just avoid eating meat. So this is only her weakness that she can't avoid eating meat. So it is just funny or stupid to write her own weakness over such a famous newpaper letting everyone knowing, making the wonderful web of words. At last I want to suggest all people that if you can't do anything good to animals then plez don't do bad too.
