Speak for the unspeakable!


What do you see in this image?

Oh! It’s so simple.

We see a cow and a calf.

The calf is eager to get some milk from its mother.


What else do you notice?

Nothing more?

In a photographer’s eyes, so many things are easily picked up

If you notice the mother cow, it is tied and its head movements are restricted. It can not even smell its baby. Usually, mother animals smell and lick the body of their babies with love, as they feed them.

Mother cow sadly not fed properly since we can see its ribs prominently. Its hip bones are so Cleary visualised. (overall the mother cow is emaciated). The skin is dried and part of the abdomen is depigmented.

Mother cow’s hind legs are tied.

Its hind thigh (the right one) is dirty and you notice the mud. So neither proper feeding nor good hygiene.

The calf is not even aware that the milkman won’t allow it to drink all the milk lest he is deprived of his quota of milk for his customers.

This is how we treat mother natures’ creations!

We have dual standards and while we don’t mind glutting our babies, at the same time denying the calf of its rightful milk.

I wonder do the mother cow and the calf really talk to each other as to how they are starved and mistreated?

I think they are sure that at least they are surviving for the day. They don’t know about their future and neither they are bothered.

Contrast this

We overfeed the pregnant wife and once the baby is born next we force-feed the baby and make it obese knowing fully that obesity can cause many health problems.

We also bothered constantly about the well-being of our lady and her children.

We keep worrying about our future.

Any lessons at least?

“If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.

I hope to make people realize how totally helpless animals are, how dependent on us, trusting as a child must that we will be kind and take care of their needs …[they] are an obligation put on us, a responsibility we have no right to neglect, nor to violate by cruelty”

James Herriot

Are you willing to show mercy on these creatures?

Take care, my friend.
