Be Prepared- Not a song but a Political ambition

The dark side depiction of not only Scar but humans too in the song Be prepared from the movie Lion King

I am sure most of us have watched Lion King movie and loved it. It was an awesome movie to watch and feel the emotions like you were Simba for real. It had great songs like the Circle of Life, Hakuna-Matata and Be Prepared.

The song “Be Prepared” was one of the great villainous song. It described each and every evil motives of not only Scar and Hyenas in the movie but also the motives humans have when they are jealous, arrogant and want to harm someone. Hyenas being the group of population cleverly manipulated by their masters for political benefits. This song from the lion king movie depicts most of the political scenarios around the world. Especially during the medivial times and the date range prior to that.Few of the lines are as follows which the Lion Scar and the other hyenas sang:

Be prepared for the murkiest scam
Meticulous planning
Tenacity spanning
Decades of denial
Is simply why I’ll
Be king undisputed
Respected, saluted
And seen for the wonder I am
Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!
Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared
Be prepared!

When I was a kid the first time I saw lion king was Hindi dubbed. And the only song catchy to me was Hakuna- Matata. But Lion King is such an epic movie that you afford to see everytime it is being telecasted. The animated version had a song named “Be prepared”. It was catchy to me. And after that I realized that the song was not for children, it was for the grown ups. As the villian fully depicts a political rivalry for his own brother. Where he wants to kill his own brother and nephew for control over the jungle.

That sounds similar to many of the political scenarios we have had around the world.

It is being said that Kim Jong Un , the North Korean dictator killed his own uncle and step brother. According to historians Ashoka and Khilji eliminated every one from their blood line who could be a threat to their Kingship. European history was the same too. Almost every dynasty politics had a dark side. The Kauravas wanted to kill their cousins for throne in Mahabharata.

Let’s go to a lower hierarchy of society standards. I mean the higher middle class, middle class and the lower middle class. I am sure all of us have heard multiple news about brother killing brother over a property dispute. Son killing father for some money or property.

Attempts to eliminate a deserving was always there in the past due to greed and jealousy.

“A song of greed, jealousy and the lust for power”

Something wrong with humans

Is humanity dead??? No!! Is the answer I want to say. But when you hear incidents which make you disturbed, sad and angry at the same time. It will be true to say that some of the humans are not human anymore.

When I was a kid I wanted to ride on a elephant when we went to a family trip in Jaipur,India. But my father denied may be because it was risky or some other reason. I was little disappointed then but now I am happy that I never mounted on an elephant.

Cruelty on animals is not new. As humans we understand the food chain so let’s not go into the food and Ethics stuff. Cruelty for any animals is wrong. But this article mainly emphasizes at the atrocities on non farm animals.

Few days back there was a viral video on a social media site sparking controversy. Where some foolish people were seen hanging a cat. Just like how a criminal is being hanged till death. But this time the people who were hanging the cat were the real criminals. They were laughing while swinging the dead cat. What kind of people these are……are they mentally sick or something wrong with their upbringing or the friends they hang out with have such mentality.

There are multiple incidents where some morons tie crackers to the tail of a cat,dog and even monkeys. And burn it. What kind of Humans are these?? Are they really humans or some monsters who flaunt themselves as humans.

Just yesterday morning I saw a news article on a social media site where some so called humans made an elephant eat a pineapple full of explosives. She was pregnant and to save herself she went inside a water logged area to get some relief. The explosives were blasted on her mouth and she wasn’t able to eat anything. Two more elephants came for her rescue but she did not come out of the water. After few days she died.

Her post mortem images showed a featus inside her which was more disheartening to see.

It’s trending all over now. Justice for the Elephant but people have become so much greedy that for also personal benefits they have decreased the elephant population. For their tusks. Elephants are chained all their life and made to do work for humans. Decorated for Religious festivals to increase the beauty of the festivals. Keeping wild animals chained or in a zoo decreases their life span and make them mentally unstable and sad.

Elephants have great memory power. They do not forget things easily. And also help orphan ones at their herd. The other two elephants rescuing her were also in tears and emotional connection as one was try to poke his trunk to wake her up or to say the last good bye.

At last “we failed as a human being and keep on failing if these type of inhumane acts are done, we say we are responsible being but in reality we all know if there is no strict punishment for animal abuse,this will continue to happen every single day.”

# Justice for Jumbo. The below images are taken from internet and it shows a lot what words can’t express.

We failed you Lord Ganesh

Little she knew it was a grenade in form of a pineapple

Computer Teacher

As a child most of us have been taught to respect our teachers. And all of us should do it too. But few teachers I have seen for real who were really mean, exploited children for their personal benefits like money and few more things.

Teaching is no doubt a respectable profession but that does not mean that the people who are involved will be good as a human being.

I guess when people grow up and start doing jobs most of the them remember at least some of their teachers either in a good aspect or bad aspect.

It was the month of April, I was late by 10 days to join school as I just came from my native. I was promoted to the second standard from first. I was in a school in Itangar, Arunachal Pradesh, India.

There was a surprise test that day. That too of the computer. Computer was almost new to Indian schools then. I missed my classes for almost a week. So, I didn’t have much idea about the usage.

So the test was really simple. It was just to type your name in the keyboard so it could be displayed on monitor. A really simple one. I was confident that I would do it easily.

Students passed by and then came my turn. I had difficulty searching the first alphabet of my name. Why??? It was a fu*Β£#@g ‘QWERTY’ board. I didn’t knew the concept of the alignment of a keyboard that it was randomly arranged at a specific manner. And I took more seconds to find the alphabet ‘S’. As I thought the sequence would be like A,B,C,D…..and so on.

All of a sudden my teacher got angry. He was in his mid 20s I guess. Tall with mustache. I do not remember his name though. May be it started from an ‘A’ or whatever.

He took a thin stick made up of iron. And all of a sudden he started hitting me at my Calf muscles. He hit me for 3-4 minutes I guess. It was painful but I didn’t cried one single drop. May be I was a freedom fighter in my previous lifeπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.I was about to but I didn’t. I always had a lot of self control and patience back then.

When I went back home I saw 3-4 thin lines at my Calf area. It was kind of visible. Exactly I don’t remember maybe it was my sister or my aunt “Mita pishi” who asked what happened to your legs and I exactly said it happened because of the room heater. Which had the covering with almost exact distance of the lines at my Calf area. It was the first lie……of my life. May be I was ashamed of my failure then. As I wasn’t able to perform such a simple test.After a long time I told them. They said I said have said about that.

Sometimes I think I should have complained about that. At least he would have been suspended from the school. Some teachers should have consience that students are not puppets at whom they would take out their mental frustrations. By badly hitting them. It’s not like I have never got any beating during my childhood but this was different. Teachers are the people who inspire children to become successful by their thoughts and teaching. And sometimes slight beating is ok.

Some memories gets imprinted on your mind just like the beating marks .

It would have been a great lesson if instead of hitting me “he would have taught me it’s fine and said I will teach you. Hardly it would have taken 2 minutes of his precious time”.

Parasitic Migration- Red Alert for Farmers

Desert Locusts have moved from the “Horn of Africa” after destroying the crops of Poor countries like Somalia they reached to the Gulf countries like Saudi Arabia,Yemen. Then moved to Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan.Finally they have moved to India in Rajasthan via Pakistan.

United Nations- Food and Agriculture Organisation department (FAO) warns India and Pakistan for Twin Invasion of Desert Locusts.

Desert Locusts have the following traits:

1. They can fly also 150 km per day. 2. They almost eat food equal to their own weight. 3. Change behaviour easily (greagarize). 4.Single swam almost consists of 250 billion locusts. 5. Life Span- 10 weeks approx. 6. Higher rate of Reproduction. 7. Very difficult to kill

How can the Desert Locusts be stopped to cause Agricultural damages?

According to the Agricultural ministries under Government of India , they can be stopped by spraying chemicals like Organophosphates by using Drones, Sprinkler etc while they halt at their journey for reproduction.

**Countries dependent on Agriculture will be impacted a lot. As the Desert Locusts eat the crops which could feed thousands of people in a single day. And that could lead to severe Food Shortage at the area attacked.

The main reason for the sudden rise in population of the Locust swarm is said to be the climate change. As the gulf regions and the Horn of Africa which is somewhat a desert area are experiencing cyclones which leads to humidity. Which supports the high increase in population of Locusts compared to the previous years.

Little Snail…🐌🐌

I saw my aunt crushing you for being you…..

I saw my aunt breaking your shell to protect a leaf πŸ’”

I saw my aunt pouring salt on you so you could die……

I wished I could have helped you little being……

I wished that you weren’t a Snail….

LAST HEARTBEAT β€οΈπŸ’•

Heart sized of a peanut, three fingers at each hands just like a miniature Barbie doll. My first glance was enough for her to fall in love with me when she saw me online.

“Hi! My Name is Motu and I am a dark Brown Syrian Hamster”. Wonder why I am called that….I have never been to Syria. But it seems like a nice place with trees, tunnels and food.

My owner “Ajil” had me transferred to his friend in a small box with windows living nearby her place. After sometime she came and took me.

Leaving my old friends was difficult for me. As I have never seen the outside world. This was the first time I had seen what the world looks from outside. Seeing giants shouting “peep peep” at each other, the first thing came to my mind was ” Ham- shit” this sucks man. I just wanted to go home.

Once I was taken by her, she tried to keep me inside a cage with a couple . An albino lady with red eyes and her blonde husband. Man he got agitated by seeing me, we had a though fight not nothing. Why would I hit on his wifey who looked furious and angry as hell always in attacking mode that too with Red eyes.

As I was fluffier and cuter than the other two she and her friends named me “Motu” meaning “fluffy or fat”. Next day I was shifted to another cage. Thank goodness πŸ™ no more fights. Her other friends Purvi, Prathama and Reema loved me a lot. Especially Reema kept on holding me.

You see I am a pure vegan. So I do have a lot of attitude πŸ˜‚. My day starts with carrots then corriander leaves and ends with broccoli. See it’s “Not slimy but satisfying” against the rule of Timon – the Meerkat.

One day the lady in white was about to have babies so her husband “Golu” was transferred kept with me. Her kids didn’t make it. Felt sorry for her. After few days he was was shifted again with her.

One day I got a huge gift. It was a new house bigger than the previous one with slides and a bigger wheel. I was the king , it had everything big like me.

Few months passed by and I got old. Maybe my day was near to go somewhere dark a place more darker than the tunnels our ancestors made to same us from predators. Next morning I was still and not moving at all , I heard my human friend say to her other friend “I don’t see him moving, he seems to breathe but is isn’t moving… That’s unlikely of him!!”. The other friend says we shall take him to a vetenary doctor. After some time we visit her friend place. They felt sad too looking at me.

After a while I was taken to the vet. He said “a hamster”. He gave me something to drink, I wasn’t in the condition to drink. Then he inserted a sword inside me. Lastly a shock….he gave me like in movies. I jumped at once at moved actively. Finally “A Ray of Hope” at everyone’s eye I could see. The doctor fella said I will be fine. Take him after sometime, I will take care of him.

My Friend came after sometime to take me with her. I was playing well. And others were happy too.

I had a good one week with her and others. I remember hiding all my food inside the sofa and under the fridge and the work they had to do keep it back inside.

This time after a week I left for good. I had my last heartbeat. My soul was out of my old , cute and fluffy body. I was still at home and I could see others getting sad.

I was burried in a garden with flowers specifically dandelions with the HOPE of getting a better afterlife.
