AN UPDATE

Sometimes an involuntary gesture and then an unplanned action leads to more action,than our 'meticulously planned ' activities.
I am referring to the post called 'heartless....Russell Market' on my photoblog and the'Wordless Wednesday'post.Little had I realized that,a trip made to check out aquariums,would actually lead to a lot of revelation and a cause,that would be taken by by bloggers.I'm glad it drew a rush of emotions in people,and that they penned it down in the comment box.I did realize that somewhere in this entire game, we were to blame for all this,as a demand leads to the need and supply and hence the market,thrives.
I can only hope that the animals ,although are subjected to 'inhuman' treatment,later find good homes.I hope,they are meant for homes,only.
Thanks a lot Madhu,for taking an active interest in the cause and contacting the PFA.We shall all hope that,the cause will have a 'liberating' outcome.

Not really.

Demand isn't that high compared to :supply: and most of these animals are killed when they grow beyond the "sellable" cute baby stage.

Pet stores must be made illegal thats the only way something good can be done.

It needs for issues to be brought in the limelight for anybody to do anything about them - so lots of credit to you. Also, just wanted to mention that its PFA (People for animals) in Bangalore that is guiding us in this cause and not PETA as mentioned.

Madhu.

You know when i was in blr, i had visited Russel market once and 'Living hell' was what I felt.It was horrifying, depressing, frightening--and absolutely no empathy of any sorts from the guys who deal in the pets.
I am so glad your post bore fruits.

I guess every little bit helps. This would inspire some of us to do our own two cents worth.

These are the days when animals are cared more than human beings. i am sorry to bring bitterness, but thanks to Mrs. Maneka Gandhi, our Dogs are more humane that we are. Anyway human beings are the worst among all animals, in terms of brutality. thanks for a glimpse through your photo blog.
