“It shall be the duty of every citizen of India to have compassion for all living creatures.”
― Article 51A of the Indian Constitution
I happened to stumble upon these buddies. The girl in the picture is the daughter of a cobbler. The boy is her brother. And this is their semi-adopted dog. When she caught my attention she was rubbing a cloth all over this dog’s body, trying to clean every inch of fur. The dog was standing calmly; feeling the bliss of this therapy.
You could see the love in the dog’s eyes. The girl was imitating her father and doing what he would do to shoes. Even though this act may mean nothing to many, but to someone who saw it happening it could mean a lot of things.
The little girl taking care of this dog with such maternal care looked benign.
Her father wasn’t objecting to this and had complete trust in the dog and had taught the essence of life, compassion – to his children at an early age.
