News headlines says..
"Bird flu has spread to 13 of West Bengal's 19 districts, with samples of dead chickens testing positive in two new districts …
Experts fear the H5N1 virus strain found could mutate into a form easily transmitted from person to person, leading to a pandemic, but there have been no reported human infections in India yet."
.. blah blah…
Now this news is no news at all, its been circulating around since a couple of years now- Hongkong, Indonesia, Bangladesh etc .. Countless innocent chickens have been killed by now, suspecting them to be carriers of H5N1 virus because had they been consumed by humans, they had the potential to spread the virus in humans.. Hence it is found better to kill the source..
So they were born to be killed either way!!..
On other note an item of controversial news which appeared two weeks back was: “The Supreme Court on Friday refused permission to hold ‘Jallikattu’ or bull fight, a centuries old event that attracts thousands of people during Pongal harvest festival in Tamil Nadu, saying it was “barbaric” and amounted to cruelty against animals.”
If bulls fight is termed as “barbaric” and “amounted to cruelty against the animals” , the culling of birds/animals etc isn’t ??? Quite controversial..!!
If one can take a hint, consuming non-veg. never seems hygienic apart from causing pain to the creature.. How could one consume an animal or fish or a bird without thinking what they are consuming as food was alive some time back, walking, swimming, flying , living with its family…
Anyhow would like to present a link mentioning some of the benefits of being a veggie.
Why not Live and Let Live..!!
