Nature Lovers

On the highway exit there is a small bush where we have spotted a deer couple stranded in the nights. Standing tall with utmost elegance i slowed down my car to have a glimpse of it every other time. They freezed when bright car lights approached them at 60 mph in a 30 mph zone.On rainy days i slow down to make sure no harm is made for both of us. 2 weeks back i found one of them lying on the road side crushed by a heavy vehicle. It was a horrondous scene with all his inner organs turned inside out scattered on the road side bushes. After a few days I saw the other lonely deer stranded at the same spot. Unfazed by the car honks and bright light it stood its ground. Looked more like a stand of statement and intent to show her courage. Maybe she was searching her dear one, unaware that he has been crumbled in an accident. Maybe she knows about her dear one and wants us human beings to stay out of her territory. I stopped my car and waited till she crossed the road. As i went home the thought about that poor deer kept lingering my mind that night.But next day again i went through the same road, more due to my practised brain than a thoughtful action. And aghast i was to see another deer mashed up by some automobile. I personally do not know if it was the same deer, but almost very sure its the same heroic deer.

Every other day I see a lot of deers decapitated, mashed, crushed and crumbled by our vehicles on road sides. In our views its basically no body's fault. At 70mph its very little we can do maneuvering our vehicles. But thinking about these wild creatures and the bad deal they are getting from us human being. Its one kinda glorious cruelty we human beings indulge in for our survival. We enclosed the nature to our benefits and now we are marauding them at our will. May god show some mercy on our souls.
