At Least They Are in a World Now, Where Humanity is Not Just a Word.

Disappointment and Anger over a horrific form of meditated murder of an innocent elephant and her unborn child in Kerala because trust me it is nothing short of murder.

The image is taken from CARTOONISTSATISH

And they said, “No matter what sign you bring us, to bewitch us with, we will not believe in you.” So we let loose upon them the flood, and the locusts, and the lice, and the frogs, and blood — all explicit signs — but they were too arrogant. They were sinful people.

~[Quran, 7:132–133]

And We call ourselves HUMAN.
Really? I think we have never insulted the word HUMAN more.

We are complaining about the suffering that we are enduring because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Really? What right do we exactly have to complain?

We say, we are being punished by God in the form of this pandemic.
Really? Don’t you think we deserve that?

I have never felt more disappointed, more ashamed to call myself a HUMAN before.

A HUMAN?
Really? I don’t think we have a right to call ourselves HUMAN.

I have never felt more of a MONSTER before.
I have never felt more disappointed before.

Every day, I try to see the positives, and every day I see something crueler.

First, that Hindu-Muslim fight over CORONA spread in India.
Second, people mistreating doctors who are risking their lives to save others.
Then, I read about George Floyd.
Now, this incidence.
A pregnant elephant was given firecrackers wrapped in fruit, which burst into her mouth and caused an inevitable death.

Where is the humanity?

Do we have anything else left?
No, If we have? Do it now. Do it goddamit. Do that also.

Because no matter what, Our KARMA will catch us. It will burn us. It should burn us.

You see the irony here?

We talk about humanity, help, protection, care.
So true. No?
We talk.
We only talk.

Because our actions DO NOT support, what we talk.

I never felt more guilty.
I never felt more disappointed.

Kerala has the highest literacy rate in India.
Weird?
Don’t be shocked.
Literacy doesn’t necessarily define — we are Educated.
or maybe we are educated.
EDUCATED MORON!

DO NOT HELP!
For God’s sake!
DO NOT HELP!
If you don’t have good intention.
If you have malice in your heart.

HEART? what heart? Do we even have a heart?

What wrong did that innocent do to us?
Tell me?
What did she do?

She was hungry. Goddamit!
She was pregnant. For crying out loud.

She was PREGNANT.

And what did we do, at the time like this?
Especially at the time like this?

Don’t we learn something? Something that this virus taught us?
We are all same.
Every fucking life is the same.
Every fucking life is important.

And what did the unborn child of that elephant do to us?
What was our problem with that child?
Tell me! What?
Tell me! Goddamit!

I am ashamed.
I am disappointed.
I feel guilty.

After over invading the territory of animals, polluting the earth to its core, damaging the environment beyond repair, who gives us the fucking right to take TWO innocent lives like this?

If Covid-19 outspread, locusts attacks, warning for incoming storms and cyclones are not the warning enough for us that mother nature is reprimanding, then it is beyond my fucking intelligence that what is?

Don’t forget, we have to reply to our KARMA.
We ourselves have to pay for our KARMA.

This time, be ready.
Because we are going to get, what we deserve.

Open your eyes HUMAN.
Open them now, before it’s too late.
