Signora2  changing people's attitude is the toughest thing to do , especially regarding animals . And especially in India .I know i'll sound like an escapist but i was glad to leave India because after a while i realised the animal life and human life are of very little value here . I am now in the U.S and this is the friendlist country towards animals and treats them nicely . Most people around like animals and treat them well . Though there is cruelty here too on different levels . Like there is dog fighting . Some vicious people train dogs - especially pit bulls to kill other dogs - and lay bets on them . Fortunately its acknowledged here that its a crime and people don't smirk about it . Every time in India  i used to try and talk to people around me about animal cruelty . Either they would dismiss me or just smirk and say , shouldn't you worry about human life more.I used to be so saddned . I  am disappointed that not many people joined in this discusion , some of them just joined to argue about veg - vs non -veg !!! Did you read my other posts on this topic . And where are you from , how old are you ?

 Hi Indygirl,

Every student aspires to leave India to pursue studies abroad, I too have the same aspirations, but I would like to come back and do my bit. People who think the way we do are in minority, but there number is increasing gradually. MY  friends and classmates are also quite in tune with these things. But generally in India, if u show concern for animals the patent reply is what u have mentioned. But it really does not matter, unless there is balance which human beings are hell bent on destroying, none can survive. Yes I would love to read ur previous posts, when did u post them, I mean are the posts of this month?

Everybody has his or her point of view. Yes!! I wrote about  veg and non- veg issue. Because as a non-vegetarian I feel it will be hypocrisy if I advice others on animal cruelty. I think slaughtering animals comes under animal cruelty too. And as far as I love meat I will keep my mouth shut on animal cruelty.

What a hypocrite world!!! Killing animals for food is okay but for other purpose it's crime.

So when you start a discussion topic be ready to read all sorts of arguments not just what you wish to hear.

BluePink  i aren't here to pick a fight on this board . But this is the deal . I am a non - vegatarian , i am saddened by dog fights , i hate trophy hunting , i am saddned when people love pedigree and mistreat strays , mongrels , i am upset to see people beat dogs because they are in their way, i am upset to see when an animal carry's excess load than he can bear, like donkeys carrying stones on their back . I am happy to see animals being put to work as long as they are being treated ethically by their owner , i am upset by unnecessary cruelty that happens around me .
I try and do my part for my beliefs , i rescue animals that are abused all the time , i fight for animal rights where required and send donations to animal charity . BUT i am a Non- vegetarian .

I have also seen my neighbour in India who was a vegetarian tie up her dog in 110F heat , with no shade , no water , and the dog died of dehydration , and another relatives neighbour who was also a veg pick up a litter of pups from his mother and put them in a bag and drown them.And i must have spent several years of my life in India fighting for animals that were seing different sorts of abuse, most people around me were vegetarians.
Fortunately for me , people in the U.S are more friendly to animals than anywhere else, and they are hard core meat eaters.
My point was that you don't have to be a veg to prove you are kind to animals , you can be a non - vegetarian and still save animals from being treated cruely. I too am not proud of being a non- vegetarian , ( hopefully someday i'll quit Embarrassed) But till then i'll continue saving cats , dogs , cows , snakes ,pigs from being abused . Cheer up girl Wink, your view point is definately respected and i do hope you'll forgive me if i offended you.
