#Tanka दहशत





जंगल वासी

शिकारी या शिकार

शहर वासी

शिकार या शिकारी

दहशत दोनो की


मनीषा शर्मा~


A one-and-a-half-year-old male leopard strayed into the ruins of a building and primary school in Kachhabali.

Villagers gheraoed and chased the terrified creature as it tried to escape to a safer place. The villagers managed to put a rope around the leopard's neck and feet and dragged it. When the leopard growled, the villagers stuffed a large pointed stone in his mouth. The shock and pulling suffocated the animal to death. After the shameful act, the villagers clicked 'selfies' with the dead leopard pulling its tail and sitting over him.  Had this leopard killed a human, people would have had come out on the streets with candles. But on His death, an FIR was filed against "Unknown" even though the culprits could clearly be seen in the pictures.

    1. We get to read these things every other day in newspapers, and it is really shameful. Had he killed someone then he would have been shot dead, with people saying he was an animal. So many people surrounded him and cruelly murdered him. What will they be called?

    1. Thank you, Jyotirmoy :) And no, they are not human beings. And even if they are then they are those who can even rape a six year old for either fun or to prove their manliness. Saddest part is that all we do is become sad on such cases.

    1. It truly is, Anupam. These days people no longer know the difference between act of cruelty and self defense.
