Every morning I wake up, I know that the day before must have been full of cruelty. One such horrid case came from a horrid place called Jahangirpuri in Delhi where a man beat a dog to death because the dog ALLEGEDLY bit his wife. He was arrested after a lot of public hue and cry and let out on bail as usual later. The video is below but be WARNED it's GORY AND SAD.
The mass murder of seals in Canada, which has the support of powers that be, must come to an end. The world must come together to exert economic pressure
As I write, what the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) describes as “the largest slaughter of marine mammals on the planet”, continues in Canada. It occurs in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence and off the coasts of Newfoundland and Labrador, and usually in spring, the breeding season for seals when pups are born and are nursed by their mothers.
The scale of the carnage can well be imagined from the fact that, as pointed out by the HSUS, “More than one million seals have been slaughtered in the past five years alone.” The actual number is likely to be higher as many of the seals, wounded after being shot from moving boats, are left to die slowly and painfully. This happens principally because the main seal-skin processing firm in Canada deducts $2 for every bullet hole found. Hence, seal-killers are reluctant to shoot more than once, leaving the wounded in agony.
In Dante’s footsteps
A new book chronicles a hi-tech Hell, which is very different from what one finds in the sacred texts, and echoes our times
Charles Patterson’s recently published novel, In Dante’s Footsteps: My Journey to Hell: A Modern Divine Comedy, unfolds at two levels. At one, it is a set of intertwined narratives about the life of a young man, Thomas Aaron Reed III, who becomes a priest, leaves priesthood, journeys to Hell and returns. At another, it is an exploration of human conduct, values, emotions and aspects of morality.
