Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

Will you ever learn?

Through the lens of the dog…

Oh Man! You are the dumbest species I have seen.

Your insensitive attitude towards your home, your planet continues to baffle me.

You build vast technology driven systems, things work at the press of a button, yet you seem to have lost the connect with your life.

The buildings you construct kiss the sky, but from above, you’ve failed to keep tab on the ground realities that are so vital for survival.

You bulldoze the greens in the name of development, failing to realize that you are axing the supply of air needed for your children tomorrow.

Money, power and expansion seems to be your only mantra, forgetting the core values of humanity.

With medical advancement, sadly the lines at hospitals have also grown longer.

Gadgets seem to control your lives, people hardly matter.

Climate change, covid, growing inequality, water shortage, increasing pollution and plastic choking all seem to attract headlines as breaking news or conclude in conclaves of world dignitaries to meet and discuss. Most times the measures to curb the problems are just on paper.

Man, why do you not learn from the catastrophes that have befallen you? I am indeed appalled at your callousness.

We animals may not be as intelligent as you are, but we are definitely wiser.

You live as if there is no tomorrow.  Hope your children don’t pay the price of your mistakes.

Oh Man, Will you ever learn?

    What a very powerful piece, Mam! Such a creative take and extremely evocative. “You live as if there is no tomorrow”- Sums up our callousness so well. Wonderfully done, Mam. This is a very wise dog indeed! 🙂😉

    A thought-provoking piece indeed. For our children’s sake, we ought to consider where we went wrong and change our ways before it’s too late. Well done.

    Here’s mine!

      Absolutely agree with you Keith. I shudder at the thought of how our world is going to be in about 2 decades. Thanks so much for stopping by. Will check out yours!

    animals may not be as intelligent as you are, but we are definitely wiser – so well said! It does feel very dumb to be human devoid of our innate wisdom. You lay it down – our reality so clear. Very beautiful and powerful 💛🌹

    Love your take, Radhika! We are fools and continue to do things that are harmful for our planet and by extension for our future generations and other species. A very wise dog indeed! ❤️

      I wish man was a better student Punam. There is so much he can learn from the animals, nature and his own mistakes. Sadly, he chooses to turn a blind eye towards any such lessons.
