Canine Culling: What is wrong with Bangalore?

After reading things like this, I ask myself: Is India still the land of compassion and spirituality, or have we sold our souls to the highest bidder?

On May 24, 1996, a report was carried in Calcutta daily Aajkaal about three dogs who stood guard to a new born baby abandoned near a dustbin in the city. The dogs refused to leave the baby even to feed themselves and left only when the child was finally taken to safety the next morning.

It was a report that invariably inspires a reinforcement of the beauty and sensitivity of the four-legged animals. And it also leads one to feel that such incidents affirm what we have known since time immemorial - that dogs are man's best friends.
