Mera Bharat Mahan- The swinging cow!





( Image courtesy Google)


I am walking my dog around 7 this morning. Like most crazy dogs( & I am of the belief that mine can win an award for craziness), when I walk left he runs towards the right, when I sternly look at him and take him to the right he has suddenly decided that he must walk on the center of the road..so on and so forth, ..so while I'm cursing and running after him, suddenly as if from nowhere appears one of these cows, who are taken around as a part of religious significance on Indian roads. The dog seems to have completely lost his head and barks like the sky is about to fall off. The cow of course looks right through him, snorts and ignores, all of these miraculously in one tandem, while I look on amazed at her attitude. Both creatures are adamant and refuse to leave their position in the middle of the road.

Suddenly a radio from the neighborhood blasts 'Oh meri zohra jabi, tujhe maloom nahi, tu ab tak hain haseen aur main jawan'( Roughly translates to-Oh my beautiful, you don't realize but you're still beautiful and I'm young). The cow seems happy, swishes the tail magnificently, releases some dung and walks off swaying like a Bharatnatyam dancer from the back. My dog is totally confused, he however wants to make the most of the opportunity and probably the last bark, so he pees scathingly into the cows legs and walks off. Mera Bharat Mahan!

hahaha......It reminded of a street verbal fight where both the parties were daring each other to come and exchange blows but neither moved an inch!

Peaceful co-existence err.. not so peaceful.

We get this bull-leading people, with a loud nadaswaram or nada abhaswaaram, during Dassera and Sankranti festivals. Our dog gets excited and enjoys barking at them.

Sahara India Pariwar has taken great initiative to bring the people of country together through the medium of national anthem. We all should come up one by one joining the hands of each other to make a such a strong knot on which every Indian word get printed strongly. Let us make this day auspicious in the world by making one of unbreakable records. Jai Hind!
