Watch 15 Park Avenue.

The movie was horrible, but it has a similar scene. It would elicit similar posts from you, I imagine....

Very, very disturbing.

Read the Kali Pujo and goat sacrifice post of yours and agree with you on the inhumanity of it all. I also agree that we are carnivores and all the crap about food chain and ecological balance. What I fail to fathom is the gruesome way animals are sacrificed. You do know about the arai pyanch throat slit and how animals are allowed to bleed to death for it to be halal or kosher. And all in the name of God. I read something about factory farming in the US (I even wrote a post on that)which swore me off eating meat in the US altogether. If you think it is not right, then how do you enjoy the meal?

welcome m,
i was moved by the sacrifice thingy.
no, i did not enjoy the meal. i didnt eat it. i told them not to give me any as i was sick (pretended).
as i said earlier, i have no objection against killing, but the only objection is in the cruelty.
these animals are very smart and intelligent with a strong impulse of sixth sense.
and you may laugh, i must say, animals are pretty sentimentals. you love one, you will know. i am not talking about dogs. you love a hen or a cow and you will see the result.
as for arai panch, well, i should not say anything. that's custom. there must have some logic in it.
in fact i know some logic that was pretty convincing.

Personally, I think that the only 'convincing' logic in customs is when you read between the lines. Namely an excuse to celebrate, adn an excuse to show sense of togetherness.

...or an excuse to exercise owr jungle days, savage way of life.
