Fantasy Coming of Age Romance

Title:- The Animal’s kingdom 

No sooner the dogs of the street see me coming on my electric two wheeler they start barking within Themselves threatening the other two to get lost, Selfish one’s are always selfish whether its’ dogs or even any of the

Human-beings. Dogs and man are even same in several ways. They are also much higher compared to Man In sexual aspects. It is like “ Survival of the Fittest.” They drive off the other two so that the three that are left want to eat the maximum biscuits. ‘Get lost you damn rascals coming to snatch our share. He will bring

Four packs. As is the case even four aren’t enough and you come to plunder upon our share? You don’t Belong to this place. It is solely our area. Get lost.” They chase them to the end of the street. Their Barking has definite meaning. The barking dogs too have a clear and meaningful language, which they Can fully understand:

“Get lost from here you bloody pack of rascals. This is our area. Don’t you know it .The owner of this House feeds biscuits but his bungalow falls in our area. You two are outsiders, Get lost before he arrives here With the biscuits. We will hit you hard on your buttocks,” Their barking and chasing suggested this only.

Barked and still barked never ceasing till those two were totally lost. Out of sight, thereafter only they became quiet. Man often fights for land, money and women but for dogs the biscuits are for them a vital Bone of contention.

   ‘” You cannot stop us from coming. We will come…. That charitable man is not for you only .He Has no discrimination attitude’. Its’ you only who deliberately snatch from us what ought to be ours too.. You are making rules yourselves to harm us. You all here are enemies of your own kith and kin.”

“Stop your bloody nonsense. We three are quite enough to beat your backs, till you would cry like a baby just born.”

They could not face the three bent upon driving the two out.

………………………………………………………………………………………

On one another occasion I had to meet one boy, named Meet Sheen who lived a bit far away on some Street where I do not go most of the times. The dogs barked and barked so loudly that I apprehended Something dangerous.. Because of them I had to drive faster.

Barked again:” Fucker of a mother, wandering rascal, rapist of the first order.

Get lost. We will break your ankles.”

“You are a stranger here. How dare you drive your two wheeler around here? The dogs went on barking in a loud ferocious anger.

……………………………………………………………………………………

Biscuits distributing Time approaches—

The three gathered there barked wildly at the other two:

 “You bloody two. How the hell you dare to come here. This is our area; mind

 You. You want to steal our share of the biscuits. We will kill you both, because

we will be left hungry. (All three pushed the two with wild tiger like teeth) Let

us kill them. The two fled with eight feet together.

They came again the next evening. No sooner the three saw those two ones again they shouted so loudly that for some moments my tranquility too got punched. You rascal’s obstinate loafers, you have once again come here. You bloody mother’s fuckers want us to fuck you dead. GO fuck your sisters. Yours is an astronomical heights of stubborn idiots. They won’t take care and bother our heads. Get lost because you are not invited “

‘” You bloody shits. Come get our kicks”

………………………………………………………………………………………

The mating season:

One hefty dog follows a bitch in full youth as tempting as a ripe apple. He

Follows her. She runs fast trying to be away from her .He stops not .She runs

And he follows. Was she avoiding him or provoking him or exciting him.

Where is the final explanation? Most probably it is a hotchpotch of mixed

Actions and reactions. Another dog too steps in intercepting his efforts to

Woo her. The bitch is only one but persuading dogs were two. A fiery tussle

In various designs of barking ensues:

            “Why are you chasing her? Don’t you see that I precede you? You

Senseless bugger, don’t you know the rules of the dog’s community? Get

Lost try not to become a hurting bone in the hot mellow mutton chop.”

Suddenly barking struggles with mouths open to ridicule and frighten

Each other ensues, The bitch is a passive spectator. Few others too jump

In the issue. There are always some people who are idle with nothing else to

Do but to meddle in other’s quarrels. Idle ones who do not know how to kill

Their time. They kill time or Time kills them. An anachronism simply puzzling.

These are the such ones who cannot read, who cannot sing melodious songs,

Who do not know anything? They only become unproductive bundles of

Useless gossips are born simply to create confusion. Such sort of women find pleasure to make one against the other.

                “You bloody bastard do you not know the dog’s community

Standards? Get lost or I must kill you. “He pounced upon him not as a dog

But as if at that moment he had become a tiger! Dogs quarreling for one hot

Bitch like men fighting for one woman. The madness of sex is same whether

Its in’ the case of dogs or men. No that isn’t right to express precisely. Men have the sex Urge all the twelve months but the urge of  dogs  is only seasonal.

“Get lost bloody loafer. Standing as an idiot here even after getting bruised. Bloody Rascal you are coming to steal my lady. You bloody sister’s fucker she’s mine for this whole of the mating season.

                          The bitch waits for him to come. He turns back to her after

Driving away the fellow. Now once again he lambasted “You bastard robber of

Other people’s girls”. He showed out all his sharp teeth in a vengeance of full enmity. He also flattened his nostrils.Barking ones with highest velocity, the other too sent back an echo with exactly Same force. He stopped not from further blabbering  “ You bastard robber You are still not gone. Let me show you the way to Hell where you will burn in Eternal fire. Through a storm of barking both tried their level best to frame His  supremacy. This girl is my darling and I am going to ride upon her. You May go on looking my game and at the most masturbate. I am now fully ready

To insert….”

………………………………………………………………………………………

“ I am now fully inside her. You may gaze and feel as much jealous as you like.”

                   While the two were entangled the other dogs even hurt them as if

The two had done the gross crime. The other dogs pinched him. Bringing in

Proximity their tongues because the mean fellows felt badly jealous to lick her. Irritated barks, angry barks, crying barks, grudging barks, abusive barks and

Hurt heart barks. They were coerced to become a public property. Sometimes kicked, sometimes pushed, becoming hurdles in the final consummation.

………………………………………………………………………………………

                         “We have to depend on this Man for biscuits. We don’t like any

‘rotis’ (Indian bread) We have no other option. His neighbours on his both sides are too Miserly. His neighbour on the right side grumbles just at that time when he

Brings the biscuits the woman shoots  sharply ironical  comments upon this deed: Men Are starving but he feeds the hopeless dogs who do not let us sleep. Most crazy Fellow who believes Krishna will welcome him on the gates of Heaven.”

……………………………………………………………………………………….

One of the other days she was loudly speaking to one other woman, who is her

Close friend : “ You know what is the matter with him. He wants to show us

That he is very noble and charitable man. Who knows how many girls he

Trapped in his youth. No man has ever been a noble person. I can see Sex in

His eyes  and even quite below. “

              The dogs sniffed their noses and said:” I can guess she was speaking

Ill about our Master. The women close by ones are all jealous of him. They

Think he is spoiling us. They feel a grudge against his generosity. How lewd

Is man who finds faults in even such acts that are essentially good.” The other

Two bowed their heads concurred with the bigger dog. “He has the last word.

We must respect his views. He knows more about Man than any of us.”

               The woman close by again blabbered another day: “ A rich fell a bah!

Why the hell he did not go to Hill – Drive? Just because he feeds few biscuits,

He cannot be considered a charitable person.”

“Man as it is carries a battery and uses it to show light where the light is

Already existing. You cannot please any man in this world. Man finds faults

As easily and none can ever surpass his critical acumen.’” It was the same

Elderly dog who commented upon the nature of mankind

                 The dog continued still further “ They are all jealous of him. He

Spends lavishly and it causes irritation to them. They cannot bear up with

His ways of living.. Yesterday he gave a pack of Tiger biscuits, two bananas

And a ten rupee note to a Fakir. The woman on the right side shouted on him..

You are only encouraging the wandering louts.”

 The second middle dog too felt he too had some thoughts : “ But it is really very ironical that God gave us no power to buy even one packet of biscuits.

We do not have any money and know not how to get any money.”

But it is better to be without money. This money is the cause of all evils in

Man. Because of money and land a brother hesitates not to kill his own

Brother. There are such sort of gangs with their agents who brush up the

Whole city marking those bungalows who have fat cash; crimes, murders, kidnapping , cheating all evils come because of money. Man is too bad because

Of money and we dogs are too good because we do not have any money.”

                            The third dog the smallest one this way expressed : “ Ya Ya

How hateful obnoxious outright murderer of Mankind is Man himself. Man

Is worst enemy of man only where do we dogs, cats or birds stand in his

Vision. China is the worst, it kills our brothers there who are butchered and

Crushed in most harsh manner to enjoy our meat. At least we are safe in

India and the Indians feed us. The Amul dairy leaves almost one kg of milk

For dogs only at every centre. “

 Now the other dog spoke:’’ Some men do not have even a pinch of mercy

For us. He always abuses us and hits stones on us. Are we not the children?

of God ? These people only hear holy truths but in practice they are zeros only “

“There’s nothing for us. We can live only upon their mercies.”

………………………………………………………………………………………

“We are also amongst ourselves simply selfish. Do we not drive away the two?

Of our brothers dogs to get more share of the biscuits. We bark wildly to show

 How selfish we can be. We ourselves hate our kith and kin and don’t wish to

Be of any use to them. Men are worse than dogs because the dogs are thankful

For the biscuits only but man is ready to kick his parents out even when they

Did everything that was possible for them. We would drive out any strangers who try to dare enter in the bungalow of this man. It is he who feeds us with biscuits.”

“ About ten months back in 2020 he went to his daughter’s house for he had fallen very badly ill. We cried for him in the most painful manner.’Oh dear

Lord do not let him die. Who would feed us with biscuits ?”

It was the voice of God:

“Oh boys don’t you worry. Everyone must die one day. But I will see to it that someone else would be arranged to look after you.”

……………………………………………………………………………………….

“ Oh my Lord of this world, please hear to our difficult lives. In the rainy

Seasons we are just running here and there. We are homeless destitute, stay

Under the shades of trees or the basement of a big flats building We would

Get a shelter by only sheer luck. We take shelter in the basement of civil

Courts or Post Offices or even our bad luck to take shelter in a Urinal..We

Are kicked and stoned by anyone anywhere Oh Lord Which are our deeds

That have brought us to this state. We are faithful to Man but how mean is

Man who would even  poison us. Do you know a dog saved the life of a man

Who was alone and that dog could call the doctor by ringing on the phone.

Another dog saved a young man of twenty-five by keeping a constant

Vigil and calling some person by constant vigilance who was buried under

Large heavy snow in the mountain areas. We are the street dogs penalized for

Some evil deeds that we did in earlier lives..”

……………………………………………………………………………………….

Go you all eight in each group and find where you can find the food. Inform

Us and thereafter we can have our morning break-fast. Fly in eight directions

And who ever comes across good quantity call all loudly at the top of your voice. Caw –caw.’’ This is the instruction to several group of crows from their

Head leader.

“ All of you know our rules and regulations. Whoever finds food , he is

Not to eat but you have to call. One group of crows to send message to the

Other group till it reaches all including me. None is to eat or taste even a

Smallest bit of the food Go be quick.”

                On one of the days one crow was found red-handed eating few bits

Before informing the other group. The matter reached the ears of the head

Leader..

“ You have eaten a morsel. It means an infringement of our basic rules`

I have heard you ate a part of the flesh and did not call any of us. We might

Kill you as per our crows’ rules and canons.”

“ please pardon me Master. I am very sorry for breaking the regulations. I

Could not control upon myself. But my Lordship I promise you I will not  

Repeat the blunder again.”

“Tempted my foot, you simply lost all controls upon your tongue. Shame

Upon you. I the leader of the crows community hand over the matter to the

Jury Gentlemen of the jury kindly decide upon this grave issue. Your verdict

Will  be final.” The leader of the crows had a break to rest for a while.

         “We all eleven members of the jury will inform the whole community

 after our personal discussion on this issue. Let the accused be

Guarded by four of our brothers” Silence. Let the members of the jury not be disturbed for thirty minutes. Oh you crows stop all this noise. It is an order from the boss.

……………………………………………………………………………………..

Final judgment of the jury. (After thirty minutes exactly )

“ After full discussion and dissection of the issue, we all eleven members of

The jury have come to the conclusion that the offender is a traitor of the

Whole crows’ community. If we let him go we would let loose all the ropes

Of controlling the organization. Tomorrow another brother of we crows will

Do the same with strong faith in anticipation that he will be also pardoned .Gradually half of the food found will be eaten soon and there would Not be left any law and order.  The leadership will be rocked and thrown to Become meaningless. A state without a strong king cannot live forever .Even The fibers of a country can badly rust. We must hang him to final death. Twenty crows will pinch into his whole body till his breathing stops. This is Our final judgment after full scrutiny on the issue with its pros and cons Taken into consideration.

 Let’s kill him. Proceed further with beaks pinched into his body till he

Actually dies. It was the blood that was sticking on all the crows’ beaks.

……………………………………………………………………………………

Don’t think that animals live all alone doing whatever it likes. They too have a

Ruler. They too have laws and strict regulation. There is a Queen of the ants

And it is she who orders and also is consulted how to solve their living existence. So too is the way of peacocks, squirrels as also the monkey’s world.
