#SHAKTIMAN ACT is what INDIA needs but why is TWITTER silent NOW!

The mourning might be over but the role of Social media extends beyond that. A mere #RIP hash tag is not enough for a beautiful horse or his comrades who may face a similar ordeal at the hands of our society where animals to date have been denied their rightful share of the planet. Shaktiman’s demise is not the end but marks the beginning of a new story where the real heroes will be seen pioneering the cause of animal safety and protection in India. The wailing may have waned on Twitter circuit; e-papers may be running out of right fuel to ignite a scandalous theme on the subject, the audience must have moved on to greener pastures and busied themselves discussing the in-news. Sadly just as we see fads in fashion, the current affairs lose steam, with the following daybreak and the issues especially around Animal Protection Laws are often, most prone to be forgotten.

Our collective responsibility is not merely supporting via tweets or signing e-petitions, rather the real action lies in pursuing and persevering till fruition. Change is not met with inconsistency. Constancy to a task is often blessed with success and positive transformation.

You can be the face of change! Let’s for once step out of the virtual into the real world where words translate into serious action; Bidding adieu to Shaktiman (who was brutally attacked in line of duty) ought to transpire into stronger animal protection laws and harsher punishments for the perpetrators of crimes against mute defenseless animals. Bid farewell to Animal cruelty should be the government’s (MoEFCC) new agenda. Is the Nation ready to embrace the Shaktiman Act?/ Do we expect a Shaktiman Act in the pipeline?
