While driving back from Auroville after after marathon on Sunday, the conversation on pets veered onto abandonment of dogs. Big breed dogs after being exploited for breeding are abandoned by some breeders once they are spent. They are discarded far away from their neighbourhood, sometimes in a forest so that they never find their way back. Also puppies of big breed given as gifts are also abandoned once it becomes full size, as it has become burden as they are no more the cute one. I never knew people can be so horrible to these gentle creatures which shower unconditional love on humans. Guess this pain festered into me deeply and came out as words today in this poem “Abandoned”.
