THE ALLIANCE OF LIFE

I love discovering blogs; I make a point to bookmark at least one new blog once in a while. Recently I came across this amazing blog called ‘The realm of Life’ and I was blown away by the stuff she was doing. She is new to blogging and she has only three posts in her blog but after spending a good one hour reading her posts, I could not control myself from asking her to do a guest blog.

Before handing the blog to her, here is something about the blogger. She is from Delhi, a travel enthusiasts and a fellow Metal Head. Guys don’t forget to check out her blog

THE ALLIANCE OF LIFE!

I go for walks to the nearby park in our sector to relax in the lap of nature. And then, one day i sat under the colorful, pink, yellow bougainvillea trees and wondered at nature's bounties.
A few weeks ago, while i was absorbed in my own thoughts, day dreaming and glancing at a few kids playing nearby, a very raucous sound by a crow intervened my chain of thoughts. This crow was cowing continuously. At first, i did not pay attention at all. But to my annoyance, i saw the crow alight on a branch near me.

The cawing became harsher and shriller, then i looked at it, its eyes were panicky and i could sense immediacy to whatever it was trying to convey. And, i, as if prompted by an unseen force, just walked away from there.

I had hardly gone a few meters away when i heard a harsh, a crashing sound piercing my ears. A big branch of eucalyptus tree had crashed breaking the bench i was sitting on. I felt a shudder and felt as if my heart stopped beating for a while. This clearly shows that the crow was warning me for the danger in the only language it knew. I bowed my head in gratitude.

Soon i realized the act of crow was to show that there was a bond between all living beings. The crow knew that there was some danger to my life. and not only this, but there are also evidences all through the history when dolphins, porpoises and even whales have rescued drowning people & escorted them to the safety of the shore. The carnivore lives by the so called law of jungle, which in fact is a very well evolved law.





No carnivore, even lions and tigers would kill other animals unless they r hungry. Herds of gazelle may pass by but the pride of lions, if they had their fill, would ignore them. In the same way, no snake will attack unless threatened. We have a number of examples in which a bitch would suckle kittens if the kitten's mother is dead. I have seen a disabled sparrow fed by other sparrows in my verandah.

Strangely, this universal bond does not seem to apply to homosapiens. There seems to be no respect and tolerance for alternative views, beliefs and opinions, thereby generating mistrust, misunderstandings and anger.

We forget that enlightenment is nothing but the realization that all life is equally precious.

  10. thanks all fr the lovely reviews... m glad u all liked my post... means a lot to me, and after reading all ur comments i also want to share that the bond with nature seem to be missing because we choose to or had to separate ourselves from animals and become man by stepping into civilization. Had we remained in the bond with nature we could not have survived as human in the wild...our body was weakly mutated to survive in the wild as other animals...so we had to suppress our natural instincts, exploit and see the nature as counter force or in your words, we had to severe that bond and create "civilization" as separate from the wild to survive...here we set our own rules (culture) and fought against many rules of nature..the nature in form of the crow in my experience saved my life for which i wonder, why we don't share the bond that other species share, but ironically, had we not severed the bond in first place we could not have survived as humans at all...what did we get at the price of severing that bond with nature? the answer is everything from your luxury to use the internet to human civilization.. in fact the very survival as a two legged creature itself!!
