Tiny Minds, Huge Sense

My blog and FB friend Sandhya Kumar from Chennai, recently shared this amazing click from the   EcoVision Sustainable Learning Center  .
Quoting from their page :

This incident took place in Punjab (INDIA) when 2 puppies fell inside a well. The mother of the 2 puppies kept barking at the well which probed the owner of the dogs to peep inside. To his amazement he found that a King Cobra silently stayed by the side of these 2 puppies and didn’t pose any threat to them. As a matter of fact the King Cobra guided the puppies to stay by the safe end of the well which further prevented them from drowning in water.

The puppies and the snake remained in the well for 48 hours. When help arrived from the forest department the snake moved to the other end of the pool. The puppies are safe and sound at this moment. The snake was later removed from the well and released in the woods.

Even the deadliest of animals learned the importance of empathy and co-existence, time for us to follow suit.

They follow
no caste system,
no  prestige issues,
wait for no sanctions,
perform for no awards,
don't discriminate on abilities,
don't rub their limbs
or fangs in glee
at the sight
of an easy helpless prey
and put on no religious shows
claiming to be
worshippers of a special God.
and killers of all others.

For that
you must be a human
with a
shamelessly evolved cortex.


  1. Yes, you have put it rightly, Suranga! They are far more better creatures than us, humans! Thank you!
