The eyes stare at me, accusing.
Dark eyes in a nonchalant expression yet with semblance of hope long lost.
I stand in front of it, my head hiding the apparent shame . Paying to watch it confined to a cage instead of roaming the forest like a angered beast, a rightful king.
I wonder at its helplessness , may be if it’s ancestors knew their future would be confined to a cage by the very species called “homosapiens” whom they helped evolve , they would have thought twice? Maybe thrice before they went ahead with their decision.
I try to express the feeling bursting in my head. I want to confess that even we , humans have lost our rights.
Except we are in cages bounded by stupid laws and more stupid beliefs.
I walk back wondering how the animal would have been in India? Considering the recent law by the Supreme Court that view Gays as Criminals.
Would it apply to this hapless animal too, its only fault would be loving and staying with another male in it’s cage , harming none.
Animals have lost their rights long back. We are losing ours now.
Of course , we are just another animals.
