Visitor Column by Jitendra Sharma: Animal intuition

I usually see influencers and celebrities happening journeys to international locations like Dubai and visiting the properties of super-rich individuals who have unique wild animals like lion, tigers, cheetahs and apes as pets.

At the same time as a child, I knew this was unethical and one thing that every one celebrities ought to communicate up towards.

Sadly, greed has taken over people and, in our quest to develop our influential networks, these celebrities find yourself posing with drugged lions and tigers.

Take the tiger temple in Thailand, for instance. More often than not, these animals are drugged as a way to take a cute image in your Instagram. The temple was closed in 2016 as a result of half the rescued tigers had died on account of consistently being drugged.

Nonetheless, there are nonetheless many locations the place vacationers can click on selfies with drugged wild animals.

The personal zoos arrange by rich households in international locations like Dubai or anyplace on this planet within the title of “conservation” are a rip-off. These individuals use these wild animals for his or her household leisure. They’ve billions of {dollars} to spend and but they do nothing to preserve wildlife besides construct a flowery zoo at their house.

Generally, these animals are declawed too.

If you wish to love a pet at your private home, undertake a canine, cat, cow, pig or every other animal that may be domesticated.

Wild animals don’t belong in cages and behind closed doorways. Once you cage them, you deprive these majestic creatures of their freedom. And then you definitely put up photos of that tragedy shamelessly.

It’s a disgrace that Indian influencers and celebrities don’t suppose twice earlier than visiting these individuals and posing with their “pets”, doing issues like feeding them milk in bottles. You’re setting a improper instance to society.

Whether or not you’ve been invited by a rich sheikh or that wealthy dad’s 16-year-old son in Dubai, it’s okay to refuse a go to to their house. Cash and call constructing shouldn’t be the one objective of your life.

These individuals are doing improper to animals and it’s past okay to show down their invites.

You have the funds for to outlive with out further contacts in Dubai and extra monetary help than you have already got. Don’t let your greed cloud your empathy. Your followers see your posts and are influenced by them, so affect them higher. Be sensible.
