“LEAD ME FROM THE UNREAL TO THE REAL”
“LEAD ME FROM THE DARKNESS TO THE LIGHT”
“LEAD ME FROM THE DEATH TO THE IMMORTALITY”
These prayers have stood the test of times because they consider and express the essential spirit of humanity and God’s love.we,all of us, pray lord for happiness,peace and a prosperous life.and we aspire to sacrifice our lower nature , wrong thoughts and emotions.Its only through letting go of our negative concepts that we can grow into the divine consciousness.But the term SACRIFICE has blended through the (IN)human civilisation. These days the pauper animals are sacrificed in the name of deity ,but its us who have sacrificed our humanity and kindness.
Being the most supreme creature of the universe,if man will be proud of such merciless acts,where will the God’s grace pronounce ???
To utter surprise the administration has kept mum over this issue.even according to a report in TOI,16th october Rajnagar police station has offered a goat at a remote sea side shakti shrine in the district of kendrapara. When asked;’I am not aware of the incident’ was the answer from the corresponding authority in question.
Tell me now,”who will save the law and give justice to the poor animals?”
while the khurda district administration was determined to stop animal sacrifice at the Bhagabati temple at Banpur the priests and locals were adamant on going ahead with age old rituals.prohibitory orders under section 144 CrPC have been clamped in and around the temple in view of prevailing tension.on the other hand all the establishments and shops were closed in the town to protest against the government move to stop animal sacrifice on the temple premises.
According to reports 47 goats and a buffalo were killed to propitiate deity at satabhaya village of kendrapara,more than 300 animals at panchabaraha temple and the number goes up and up in the district of nabarangpur and kalahandi animals being killed at almost all the durga pandals.
The most shocking news is that at bhawanipatna the merciless inhumanity exceeds beyond the limit.around 50000 animals were killed that day on the road and the event was accompanied by dances,songs naming it “chhattar jatra” which literary means “the victory march”.the one km stretch of the road from manikeswari temple to college square turned red as the animals were slaughtered en masse as the ritual procession moved along.the scene was so ghastly that the children who were accompanied by their parents screamed covering their innocent faces.
In 2006 I was going to home from BBSR on such a day via bhawanipatna.I had to wait at the end of the town with all the passengers (as all the roads were blocked by the people from the morning till noon) and finally we went through the town at 1 pm.I was sure,after I had a look on the road,it was as good as the land of mahishasur,the cruel demon.
And I asked myself hundreds of question, “have i become a sinner watching the fresh blood on the road screaming at me…’O human-being!what’s our fault? Why are you killing us so mercilessly?
To which I had no answer but a murmur ,”I am ready to go to thousands of hells,O mankind,if you will stop this bloody bleeding’.”
the killing were continued even as two platoon police stood like mute spectators. Who will be going to save these poor animals?
Its us O humanbeing!
Its you,O creature supreme, are the eldest of all .
How can you enjoy the blood and screams,even if you live in the land of ahimsa(nonviolence).
You should be proud to belong to a country which has taught the the nonviolence.
Wake up O dormant humanity!
If your ancient faith has asked you to kill the animals in the name of age old ritual…..doesn’t it teach to love all the animals as they bear the beauty of God!
I beg you on my knees…O mankind, please stop this cruel ritual,and put a smile on their poor faces instead.
the administration should act strongly . If the consciousness and alerts is not going to be fruitful it should ban the rituals very strictly. If still the killing of animals continues ,the culprits should be punished in the court of law.
But dont hang them please….your majesty,just bury the stupids alive!
