The Force of Falsity, by Amit Chaudhery

Outlook published ‘Prime Cuts’ with the byline ‘An air thick with innuendo and contempt produces a new stigma: meat-eating’. Amit Chaudhery wrote a rebuttal that Outlook refused to publish. It is published on ‘The Voice of Stray Dogs’ in its entirety.   “You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity” — Ralph Waldo Emerson Perspective is everything and reality is the servant of perception. A simple premise which spawned this rebuttal to the cover story by Saba Naqvi  inRead More

VoSD’s SOP is clear that we will NOT allow any casual visitors to our facilities – only registered volunteers and employees are allowed. The people who have the most problem with this it are a section of Bangalore ‘activists’ working for a couple of NGOs and their sympathizers and the spammers working for them that has been referred to in an earlier post (picked up by the trashy yellow journalist and editor of Bangalore Mirror). These guys have the option of registering – but will not. We are on recordRead More

The text describes the the rescue of 31 cattle by People For Cattle India (PFCI) in Perumanallur (Tirupur District), Tamilnadu.  The article is terribly important for 3 reasons:  Unlike in most such cases the cattle were not released by police order etc. They stay rescued. PFCI makes an aggressive & legally sound complaint that enforces an FIR and therefore the matter is not just for the police to decide but the courts. The cattle as from so many parts of AndhraPradesh, Tamilnadu & Karnataka were being smuggled into Kerala forRead More

elephant at the dubare elepahnt camp
Elephants in captivity are not a good thing. Elephants in zoos. Elephants in temples. Elephants in ‘Elephants in Elephant camps’. Elephants are slaves and captive labor at best. Beggars at worst. But they don’t just become it. They’re trained. They’re broken. And the Govt does it in its watch. And you know about the ‘rogue’ elephants that are caught and they put to task! Well they just disappear looks like. India needs only happy well adjusted pachyderms. India is still the land of elephants and snake charmers in the IncredibleRead More
