Friendship is a relationship in which humans share a close bonding with each other. The bond includes support, that is, however much the situation provokes, we always stand by the people we have considered a friend, in front of them and most importantly behind their back. Another criteria that attributes to this lovely bond is, understanding. Comprehending the dilemma, the situation our friend is in, and reacting accordingly, is wise. Lastly, being non-judgmental plays a pivotal role in such bonds. I suppose, nobody wants to be stalked and commented on, every minute by the people we consider a friend.
Lately, a famous trend is followed in friendship. A trend, in which people be friendly to us, in our presence, and extremely hostile in our absence. A trend in which people exclaim their hatred towards one and a day after, they seem to be best buddies. A trend which is known as Fake-ism. We all have had phony friends at one point or another. I discern no point in continuing a relationship of trust and love with such hypocrites. Sharing our personal thoughts with such people is equivalent to sharing it to the whole world. What is the point of friendship here then? Sadly hypocrisy, cannot be termed as a mistake, it is a part of our personality, which disgusts me. It is even more disheartening, when we get to know, that a person, whom we had counted on, has passed belligerent remarks about us. Fake-ism has besieged friendship.
No relationship, particularly friendships die a natural death. It is tainted because of our futile lies, vehement ego and intense assumptions. We are so egoistic that it takes us several days to ask our fellow mate, what is wrong. Even after we realize our mistake, because of our bulky ego, we are never able to apologize. Making assumptions play an important role in sullying a relationship. The moment, there is a ‘probably’, a ‘think’ or any dilly-dallying thought, we should realize we are about to ruin the connection. We are such unfortunate living beings who are gifted with a mind, but are unable to work it out in a right order.
Have you ever wondered why these four legged angels are known to be human’s best friend? Because they will always stand by your side, no matter how the situation plays on you. Because they will make earnest efforts to make you upbeat when they realize you are in depression. Because they can feel your pain when you cry your heart out. Because they will give you unconditional love when you are shattered. For them owning a Ferrari, Living in a bungalow, wearing branded clothes is insignificant. All they require is a family who will take of them till their last breathe. Though majority of people want a dog. A breed dog. Breed dog? Stray dog? Aren’t they all four legged cherubs? For such people, dogs are just a key for a raise in their social status. Ever wondered why they mention the pet breed and never the pet name? The original mom of the breed one that you are currently attached to, has gone through startling misery that either she has passed away or is in a pathetic state right now. If you give your nod for this, then I assume rape is also given a thumbs up, because in both the scenarios, there is no consent of the female for the execution. In every country around the globe, there are shelters where abandoned, ill- treated fur angels are desperately looking for loving homes. Instead of propagating the idea of buying a breed, we should entertain the dogs who are in need. If you dearly want one for love, then there won’t be an adjective linked to the noun, dog. Dog cruelty is another phase to focus on. Stone pelting, pushing away the dogs, harming the dogs with crackers and colors falls under the category of Animal cruelty. Any which ways, if you are caught in the eye of the law for executing such violent actions towards the mute, the punishment scales up to the same as of a (human) child abuser. There are laws which run in support of them, for example, a human can be booked under the IPC sections 428 and 429 for hurting the animal unnecessary and are many more. It is illegal to kill homeless animals, to superfluously charge the people who are feeding the dogs outside the so called ‘clean’ society. We call ourselves human, but severely lack HUMANity. Lastly I would want every human to adopt, not shop and show compassion, not cruelty. Dogs are those little piece of furballs who can alleviate your depression just by looking at you with those tiny, sparkling eyes!
