Aneesha- My Elephant Love

Aneesha- The name that tell tales in my heart recalling the sweet memories we had together. She presented me with the best honour a human could receive from an elephant- her trust and unconditional love.

I always had such a loving relationship with almost all animals in my life, she left a lasting impression in my heart that no one else did. She came into my life as a divine flow of energy that changed the course of my life altogether. She had been such a mesmerising creature who I truly fell for.

Being with her, I got a glimpse of her world that she let me see. Whenever we spent time together away from other humans, I always felt her soul communicating with mine. It was such bliss! Words can’t describe how fortunate I had been to have earned her trust and love.

She kept following me wherever I went; She had always been such a docile elephant as far as I have seen, except for that fine day when she rushed to my aid thinking I was in trouble. And I had to turn around and stand as the only barrier between the person she misunderstood and her wild side that was waiting to be unleashed. She stood for me as though I was one of her kind, I felt deeply touched by her gesture.

And she stopped the moment she realised that I’m alright as I turned around to stop her. We just stood in silence, locking eyes as our souls communicated. I broke the silence by stepping forward to gently hugged and caressed her, as she purred expressing her love the elephant way.

Leaving her behind was one of the hardest decision I ever made in life. Although life goes on, not a day goes without me thinking of her whilst missing her presence around. She left such a lasting impression in my heart and soul. She must have missed me too. Poor girl!

Behold! For goodness sake, she has a new friend now; A friend from her own kind. She finally gets to be with another elephant who she can bond with, just the way she deserved to be. They were meant to be together, and they are now together as soulsisters. Merry times their way!

Much love to them both and big thanks to their rescuers who united them.

With gratitude,

Social conditioning and exploitation of lives – A reality check

In this materialistic world, there is a system in place that controls almost everything we do. It programmes us on what to think,  what to see, what to do and who to love, and who to hate.

It  makes people believe that it’s alright to see animals as commodities as humans are the most dominant species in the world, although we are not.

This system does more than just controlling. It socially conditions people to believe that animals are here for us to be used as we like. Tradition, culture, geography and religions determine the level of social conditioning, but by the end of the day it’s the system that controls everything in place.

But Why Not Dairy?

This is beautiful piece written by my friend Barbara Larue. Thought I would reblog the same for raising awareness among my followers and for them to spread the word out. Together we stand for animals.

Mercy for all Animals

mom and baby cow snuggles_1073febad64ef4c66b9105729f08401dIt’s a fair and often heard question, one I had myself several years ago.

“I like my cheese/ice cream/milk, etc. and besides they don’t kill the cows for their milk”.

That’s what’s normally expressed when someone wonders why people go vegan instead of simply vegetarian (vegan excludes all animal products and vegetarian excludes meat).

The heartbreaking truth is that dairy cows suffer intensely from an industry that exploits them mercilessly.

It all begins with the calf being born to cause the cow to give milk for her baby.

Because man has become accustomed to using the milk meant for the calf, the natural process of a mother nurturing her young is violated, with the baby being taken from the mother either immediately upon birth or shortly thereafter, much to the mother’s grief, anger and sorrow.

The mom will call for her calf and try to search for it, and her…

Harambe-the gorilla who paid with his life for human negligence

Harambe, a western lowland silverback gorilla was shot dead by Cincinnati zoo officials to ‘’rescue’’ a 3-year-old boy who fell into the gorilla’s enclosure.

They could have diverted Harambe’s attention and  rescued the boy, or they could have  tranquilized him, instead the park officials chose to shoot and kill.

The gorilla did nothing other than  protecting the child the whole time,  but was misunderstood by the authorities who had no clue about primate behaviour.

Being Vegan

vegan

At the end of 2011 I went vegan.  Having been a vegetarian since birth I was surprised to discover that giving up dairy was such a big step for me; but it was a step I had to make, as I was becoming a vegan for ethical reasons. While transitioning into a vegan diet, the craving for milk products was the biggest challenge I had to overcome. However, whenever I struggled, I remembered the animals that were suffering when I consumed dairy products, simply to please my taste buds. This made me feel guilty and that is how I got over my craving for dairy products, and evolved into a vegan. It is scary how addictive dairy products can be.

Going vegan was the best decision that I have ever made. Going vegan not only helps the animals, but also the environment, plus it is very beneficial to one’s health.
