When the front page is just too much to bear

I love news and current affairs and politics.

Always have done, since my far-off undergraduate days at Oxford, when I would religiously read “The Times” every morning.

Now, many, many, oh-so-many years on, it’s a different Times I read over my morning coffee.  “The Times of India.”

But despite my inherent love of current affairs, and the need for such “gyan” to feed this very blog, there are times when I wonder if I shouldn’t simply turn my back on all the wickedness and evil that gets reported.

Like this picture on the front page.

It turned my stomach.

And yes I know, I know, there is so much evil perpetrated towards humans on any given day, but that doesn’t make this horror any more acceptable.

I won’t give up reading the news, of course.  Too much of a news junkie.

But two and a half hours after reading this, I still feel nauseous.

Shame on us as humans.

Shame on the officials who failed to protect the poor creature.

Shame on every evil person who killed it, filmed it, dragged it though the streets.

I’d like to think that action will be taken against everyone of these cruel people, but we all know it won’t.  Their photos are all there, on record, for us to see and ID them, but we all know nothing will happen.

I have attached a link to the story in full, if you have the stomach to read it, as well as to an equally horrific story about a mob of 1000 near Jorhat killing a tiger.  Killed by driving an iron rod driven through its chest.

Equally horrifically stomach churning.

No need to belabour the point.

Sickening, inhuman, wicked behaviour.
