Welcome to the jungle – 2

Months back, a post was made entitled ‘welcome to the jungle‘. That post though full of wild trees and shrubs, had no wild animals in it. So this time, we have most of the wild animals found in this one, accidentally strategically being published just before the release of Jungle Book.

With 4 visits to the National Zoological Park (Delhi) over the last 6 months, I clicked over 1000 bad pictures. There is something addictive watching animals for hours and patiently waiting for hours in the harsh sun to get that one shot that can be shown to friends and family 😀 So here, I will post some of the pictures of some of our friends who are fighting for their existence and are forced to live in their dwarf homes at the center of one of the most densely populated cities of the most densely populated country in the world. try to get something funny out of these fat asses.

“So, ready for the fight bro?” “Sure man! Start counting your days! But where is the lousy referee looking?”

“Fuck the referee bro! There’s only one rule in our fight club! It is, there’s no rule!”

Suddenly, the whole tribe intervenes and tells them to stop. They have a news!

Hey stop you naive idiots! Haven’t you heard of the Panama leaks? All the big cats have their names in it! Let us go and protest like intellectuals!

“Yes yes! Follow me. Those cats might be powerful, but hiding their money in the Panama Canal ! Hahh! They can’t be as smart as me”

“Hahaha oh monkey! You are such a monkey!”

“Hey croc! Just because he is black, you can’t call him a monkey! Racism is not allowed here!”

“And that is not racist, you asshole? Silly animals! The day I complete my evolution degree and get promoted to homo-sapien, I’ll teach you a lesson”

“Umm, we are saving our seats here since morning to see the drama. Could you please protest now so that we can have some entertainment? We are really bored of news debates”

“Protest? Against us? Was peeing in my drinking water a part of that?”

*ROAR* “What is this commotion about in my kingdom? Don’t you know I am a no-nonsense king?”

Speak up now! I, your king, am here! Or my roar has left you out of words?

“Ha! Silly old man! We had oil! So we became a democracy years ago! You are not the king anymore”

“And in democracy, we can pee and sell it as oil”

“I am going home :/

To be continued… Maybe, if I feel like… Someday. Please tell me if you smiled.

The Beast

4

Mighty and ferocious
He challenged the king
The Earth shivered
Birds stopped to sing

The skies struggled
To look through trees
Who stood still
Like the snow freeze

One dash
A violent blow
From King to pawn
The throne to go

Undoubtedly he won
But glory lasts for little
Time, which brought
A beast disgusting as spittle

Freedom lost
Might in vain
A world destroyed
For some petty gain

The picture of the lion was taken many years ago at the Delhi zoo (India) and the mighty Asian elephant shown is in Coorg Elephant Camp (India) where elephants are kept for days before they are transformed from wild to trained ones.
