It pains me a lot to see animals – both big and small – trapped inside cages and put up as public exhibits. When I say cages, I include aquariums too. Nothing could be as worse for those poor fish than being trapped in a 6 ft x 4 ft x 2 ft glass enclosure, sometimes in the name of Vaastu and Feng Shui. Imagine how you would feel if you were to be trapped 24 x 7 x 365 in a four-walled enclosure with the occasional food bits being thrown at you. How would you feel, if in addition to this misery, there were cameras constantly taking your pictures? You would go wild and mad within a very short period of time. That’s exactly how caged animals feel too.

I don’t know why, but they do have caged animals at Baba Amte’s Anandvan. That for me was a big surprise. On one hand, you are giving life to one set of living beings, but on the other, you are squeezing the life out of another set of living beings. Included in the cages are, peacocks, rabbits, a couple of monkeys, and even a crocodile!
