Kaaviya: A Step Towards Saving Orangutans

While reading a newspaper I saw a paragraph about the extinction of orangutans. In the picture nearby there were two orangutans hugging each other. When I saw their eyes and I felt that they were asking for help.

I almost had tears in my eyes after seeing their pity look. I couldn't refuse to help them and I swear it's true that orangutans' eyes speak. Here, I have come up with a method to help them. The future is not yet written and I'll make sure it's ours. Earth is neither my not yours. Now you might think that it is ours. Who all do you include in that ours?

Only human being! But never ever is it the right answer. Then what about the different species of plants and animals? All of them have an equal share in earth. Say suppose I'm a dinosaur. I come up to you humans for your life. Will you accept to give me your life? The same is with animals and other creatures. I request you all a thing.

Just for a minute only for a minute please close our eyes and think yourself as an orangutan running out of shelter due to the forest fires or relocating you forcefully like pushing you down the trees and making you fall down in the nets and taking you somewhere else. This is the same like pushing you down the sixth or seventh floor when you are holding it tightly to save your life.

I beg everyone to close your eyes and think about this. Imagine that some unknown person asks you to vacate your house for his or her personal needs. I'm sure no one would accept to vacate your house so easily. Then this is also sure that the orangutans will also refuse to vacate their house. In fact we, humans, never have the right to destroy someone's shelter forcefully for our own needs. Just because we know to speak and just because we have 6 senses it doesn't mean that we can steal their house. And by stealing their house we have made them endangered. We aren't humans on our own wish they are n't animals or insects on their own wish the maker for everyone is the only one-god!

Once we learn to share earth with everyone equally then there wouldn't be any signs of extinction and even deforestation. When we grow more and more plants we also get a solution for the burning of fossil fuels because of which we can stop climate change.
