Of Pride, Valour and Honour...

On one of those girly nights, conversation never stopped, it just went on and on and on...It got personal and then it got political....And embroiled in that conversation was this awe-inspiring true story...It left me awestruck and hence the blog...

Thank you Rekz for telling it to me....

"In the fierce and unkempt forests of Africa, the crude and cruel men considered women as mere objects of desire. Innocent women and children were raped to satisfy their rampant hunger. Respect to women was something they had never heard of. One day, a gang of over zealous, moronic men ransacked the house of a young girl of 13 and carried her away for their silliness. She managed to escape their deadly throes and ran away. The men pursued her deeper and deeper into the forests.

Suddenly, the weeping girl spotted a herd of lions in front of her. Rooted to her spot with fear, she could not move. She stood, as though struck by a thunderbolt, till the furious cries of the men behind her jolted her out of her shock. The little girl, though young, was full of pride and she decided to save her honour and give her life away to the golden beasts before her rather than die disgracefully in the hands of the human beasts behind her. She ran forward towards the herd....


The pitiful sobbing of the little girl sounded, to the lions, like the whimpering of a wounded cub. Instinctively, they formed a protective circle around her, baring their razor sharp teeth menacingly to her pursuers, warning them not to take a step forward. The delirious fools fled the scene almost immediately! The herd remained there guarding her the entire night. The girl awoke the next morning, the trauma still looming over her, and was astonished to find herself alive. She looked around but the lions were nowhere to be seen. She was saved- by the 'Deadly Beasts' from the 'Humane Humans'."

Now wasn't that good??? Reiterates the fact that animals are far more 'human(e)' than most humans themselves! But whatever we are, whatever we do, I truly believe that all of us should try and live like the little girl, a life Of Pride, Valour and Honour.....

:) they say the first humans were africans... i guess the beast in some of them never died.. U're right.. sometymes people are so deep-fried in the hot oil of power/hatred/greed/jealousy that they tend to get blinded n charred for life..

Funny thot but i'd like to share it with u:

what should have saved that girl??
A 'HUMANE' TOUCH..

well, i guess we were wrong there:
life's always about reading the unwritten words between the letters,words & lines:

HU really saved the girl??
the MANE!!!!

lets try n push out all those EXTRA words, thots n evil forces sandwiched in between n try n be HUMANE..

A thought provoking issue indeed that has ignited the debate that man is considered a social animal....

From my point of view, (even in today's modern times) the so called debate would end in a stale draw...

on the one hand, we have rapists, criminals and many other no-goods in the world who have used their tamasic lifestyle to bring harm to others!

while we have had noble men and women who have helped mankind in all possible ways!...

Animals on the other hand, are consistent in what they do...kinda weird to think of it that way...but lots of things to learn from them indeed...

in short, keep the motto as "LIVE AND LET LIVE"!

thanks for bringing it up preets and thank you reks too for the inspiration! :)

Hey da..

Just one thing.. it was "Lions- which belong to the male gender" though it was a creature with 5 senses.. so what am i trying to tell here? the thing is there are guys who are understanding and fight for the right and the unprotected also. :) stupid concept right?? Cant help myself these days.. End line: Not all men are same.. I aint justyfyin, but just tellin the concept..

An inspiring story to people who think that animal has only five senses.. I hope people understand that an animal is more faithfull and respond to human emotions. and they are so damn disciplined.. that is one thing that makes me wonder. Their sense of control..

Good one.. Well, you seem to improve by the day.. Impressed beyond words..

Cheers
You Know WHo

wow...

now thts something..

i agree .. sometimes.. we humans become worse than any beasts on this planet.. the kind of deeds that we do..the mass murders happening.. bombings.. why tht even eve teasing which ends up in getting ppl killed..
well.. there is no explanation that can be given or justification given..

guess this is the price we pay for been the social animal.. unless we choose to become more civil n like ruby says.. make sure not to hurt ppl.. things very much would be how it is rite now..
