Cried while travelling today morning
Not for the dead baby or faraway hubby (not that I dont miss him)
Not at the auto fare (Tear glands would dry off in couple of days, if one started crying for every exhorbitant fare in Chennai)
Parents might stay just few buildings, off the main road
But its stressful street for me, due to the street dogs on that street.
And its always a dilemma when mom accompanies me.
Since the dogs know she would get a biscuit for them
They would definitely come near me
But with her around surely they wont bark or bite at me
Aaah thankfully the big black and white one wasnt around
The smart one who follows mom only when the corner tea shop is open
Only one other dog on the street and someone was giving it a biscuit.
And then mom mentions about the big black and white one
Few days back a guy had called out to it
And when it went to him, wagging its tail,
He burnt it with the bidi in his hand
Grrrrrrrrrrrrr well thats the thought in my mind
But the dog simply had gone back to its earlier position.
Not a bark Not a bite
Cant comprehend the cruelty
And worse cant comprehend why the dog choose to forgive.
And even though I look stupid,
Cant help the tears.
And next time when I walk that street
Rather than worry if the dog would go for my throat,
would have to watch out for the "inhuman" human
Unfortunately that isnt easy
