All Things Bright and Beautiful

A portion of my first salary was saved for the animals at Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre. I can’t believe that it is today, after having been employed for eight months, that I have found the time to go to the centre. But I did, and for good!

The cows seemed to be very happy to see me…my friends of many years. Drooling, they came towards me with eyes full of love and expectation.

And...this is how they loved the food

I felt content.

Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.’

I totally agree with this quote by Anatole France and have actually experienced this awakening. Animals are innocent, expecting nothing but love, and offering an abundance of it in return. Trust me, to love an animal and to be loved by him is the best feeling in the world. 

All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small;
All things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all! 

Every time I visit the hospital, I feel the world is a beautiful place and there is no ill. Would end this piece at this note and would encourage you to try this exercise once and experience the high yourself :)
