Disguised in Animal Lovers Clothing

Nowadays Social Media is galore with thousands of Animal Lovers in different forms. 

That is fine with me because I love all living beings.

However, when one steps out on to the real world, one would see more and more Meat shops being opened in every nook and cranny in the country.

The problem is that most of these so-called Animal Lovers attention is always one directional.

Once when I posed this to some of them to explain, what was their standing on the Horse driven carriages being used by some royalties, I found they were dumb silent.

There are many police forces around the world have mounted police unit in their amour.

What is their standing on that?

What do these So-called Animal Lovers really want?

Sooner we find out, better for all.

What a disappointment Colombo Hippie Market Today !

Colombo Hippie Market.

I will not mince my words, but it was a total disappointment today.

First the venue was changed, a few hours ahead of the event and that too was in the middle of the night, putting those who have reserved stalls in a very uncomfortable situation.

Secondly, the chosen venue was a rugby football ground and stalls were allocated on top of the terraces.

All those who have come there were not only young and hippies.

There were families, ladies and elderly among them.

Most refused to climb up those huge terrace steps (mean for sitting to watch matches being played) to reach up to upper level of the stalls installed, thus depriving some of a chance even to recover the hefty admission fees paid to get a place in the market.

Lastly, there was only one lady from the organising committee and she was too busy (with her own works) to even to listen to anyone’s difficulties.


Even the refreshments facilities organised were very poor and people who were visiting had not much choice to select from and the products were priced too high as well.

Neck-ties off from school uniforms

We are situated in the tropics and with it, hot and humid weather is an integral part, thanks to the location. 

Recently I have been driving around the country and to some pretty remote locations too. 

During those drives around the country, I have seen school children ambling to schools, mostly in white uniforms. 

Another significant thing was that the necktie was part of the uniform of most of the girls' schools even located at those very remote locations. 

What purpose does it serve; I could not help asking myself ? 

One time we were under the British rule and I am sure this necktie being a part of the school uniform must have been picked up from their boarding school uniforms then. 

But I do not think that the British schools have such strict uniform decorum in the present day. 

So then, why do we blindly still follow ? 

Taking neck ties off from school uniforms (mostly girls) is something overdue. 

Further, it is time to think about changing the colour of uniforms as well. 

Should we go for a darker colour ?

Where were the so-called Animal Lovers today?

The United Kingdom celebrated the Queen's 90th Birthday with pomp and pageantry today.

She was driven around in a horse driven carriage and hundreds more were seen on horse back during the ceremony.

It was something nice to watch.

But I could not help wondering where were the so-called Animal Lovers today, who are very active in some of the social media about elephants being mistreated in Buddhist Temple festivals.

If using elephants for festivities is bad, then how come it is good for horses?

Can someone enlighten me please?
