Popularise stray dog adoption

Penalties for feeding stray dogs is not the solution but people do need to be made aware of the proper way to care and show affection towards our four-legged friends. Stray dog adoption should be popularised so that pets can be kept within the four walls in proper care than showing love and affection in a public place that disturbs others.

I am a dog lover myself but the pet owners should be careful that their affection towards animals in general and dogs, in particular, should not harm others. Dogs too have feelings and mood swings like human beings. They too get frustrated and may harm people if kept indoors for long or ill-treated. Normally they don’t bite without provocations, but there can be exceptions and the pet owners need to take precautions by tying them with a belt in public.

Mumbai has a humane side where we have a rising tribe of pet lovers who keep dogs and cats as pets but that should not be at the expense of fellow human beings whose safety too should not be overlooked!



Wishing you a wonderful Easter

The word ‘Easter’ comes from the Germanic goddess of spring and fertility, Eostre. That is why Easter is filled with pagan symbols of life such as eggs, bunnies, and chicks. Easter is another season of the year that presents an opportunity for most of us to once again reflect on the life of Jesus Christ. His resurrection is proof enough that He will return soon once again to this Earth and I will have to account for how I have lived out His legacy.

Serious cases of Swine Flu

The outburst of H1N1 is on the increase and BMC did not pay much importance to cleanliness and that in turn spread diseases all over the city. Hospitals are not fully equipped to face an influx of patients as cold and fever strike the patients first and turn into deadly Swine Flu. The disease is spreading in epidemic form. The number of Swine flu cases are on the rise this year and it is time to act in a responsible way. Instead of attending the cases on a war footing, the action by the BMC is rather slow and requires further follow up. Swine Flu is spreading and it is high time to treat the patients in the best way possible. Since Swine Flu is spreading drastically in non-slum areas, the position is alarming and it is a matter of time to spread in every nook and corner of the city unless some remedial measures are taken on a war footing. This year the number of cases of Swine Flu is more and the Health department needs to address the problem on a priority basis.

Loopholes of investigating system exposed!

Sadhvi Pragya Thakur should not be blamed for her earlier statement on martyr Hemant Karkare, because it was hardly possible for her to resist the description of personal torture faced in our investigating-system where investigating officers are compelled to use inhuman tactics to make a young lady give statement according to requirements of political rulers.

However, Sadhvi on the next day proved to be a matured patriot when she rightly took another side of the picture by giving deserved respect to Hemant Karkare for his becoming martyr in fighting the worst Pakistan sponsored terror-attack on Mumbai.

Fault evidently lies in our politically influenced investigating-system which can be corrected by probing allegations of torture alleged by Sadhvi Pragya Thakur to expose those on whose directions Maharashtra ATS is alleged for inhuman torture on Sadhvi Pragya Thakur during her captivity during investigations.
