Draped in a suit of sombre black the Earth rattled with seismic vibrations and the land of the rising sun— Japan, home to Hachiko, braved & bereaved in the aftermath of the earthquake & Tsunami.
It wasn’t the island nation alone but the entire humanity that stood in the horror of the irremediable cataclysm & the toll it took. Marred by melancholy, the mornings of mourning haven’t subsided in Japan but the hope lives on.
Animal rescue efforts in Japan
The calamity seeping into the regions quivered not only the earth but also the fallacy of human hold over nature. Despite breakthrough technological advancements and scientific progress, we are the proverbial ‘dust in the wind’ belittled by the juggernaut of nature.
Japan holds an extraordinary place in animal-loving hearts; the true tales of compassion from the land always make one crave to discover more. While rescue workers were making efforts to search for human survivors in the rubble of buildings, animal welfare groups also pitched in to rescue Japan’s animals.
Here’s a solemn prayer for the grief-stricken souls, a pean for their courage that refuses to fade. With the hope that the mystical eastern charm spells serenity, I’d leave you with the video byte(s) that have taken the internet by storm. An endearing emotion captured on camera denoting canine love & loyalty.
