Might is Right!


Listening to my favourite music, I was walking down the lane towards my office.

The campus, one of a kind in Mumbai is filled with greenery & apart from the great variety of flora, there is also a huge variety of fauna. You can spot domesticated animals like cats & dogs along with the more exotic mongoose & chameleon. A rare sight in the commercial by-lanes of Mumbai.

As I was getting closer to the office, I saw a huge flock of crows hovering around the cars parked in the area.. Their constant crowing gave me goose bumps. I scanned the area with my eyes for a dead mouse & what I saw! A cat was hiding under the car with a dead pigeon in it’s mouth.

I was flummoxed! For a second I didn’t understand whether to feel pity for the pigeon or the cat!

Well, the pigeon was already dead and the cat looked like it would be killed if she ventured out of the car. The way the crows scared me, I could just imagine the cat’s fear! Waited for couple of minutes to see how I could help the poor cat..but feeling helpless against Nature’s Might, walked away! I just hope the cat survived somehow!

Your thoughts please? :)
