NATIONAL PET DAY April 11th

Our children indeed are our pets even when in teens and above!
God’s will and creations are unique and many can be our pets!
If we consider our pet a member of the family, we
Are normal humans. Millions have dogs and cats as lovely pets!
Fish, birds, gerbils and turtles are also deemed to be so by many.
We love pets and National Pet Day is the purr-fect our furry,
Feathery, or scaly friends on April Eleventh- today our pet day!
Here isaa what Mahakavi Bharathiyar expresses his love for pets as if he advises his pet children!
IN TAMIL

சின்னஞ் சிறுகுருவி போலே-நீ
திரிந்து பறந்து வா பாப்பா
வன்னப் பறவைகளைக் கண்டு – நீ
மனதில் மகிழ்ச்சி கொள்ளு பாப்பா!
கொத்தித் திரியுமந்தக் கோழி – அதைக்
கூட்டி விளையாடு பாப்பா.
எத்தித் திருடுமந்தக் காக்காய் -அதற்கு
இரக்கப் படவேணும் பாப்பா!
பாலைப் பொழிந்து தரும் பாப்பா! – அந்தப்
பசுமிக நல்லதடிப் பாப்பா!
வாலைக் குழைத்துவரும் நாய்தான் அது
மனிதற்குத் தோழனடி பாப்பா!
வண்டி இழுக்கும் நல்ல குதிரை நெல்லு
வயலில் உழுதுவரும் மாடு,
அண்டிப் பிழைக்கும் நம்மை ஆடு – இவை
ஆதரிக்க வேணுமடி பாப்பா!

Like a small pigeon that plays around–you
Here and there, everywhere run and play my child.
Looking at the colorful birds around –you
Have all joy ever in your mind my child! (2)

The hen that goes and picks its food-make
Friend and play with that my child.
The crow that stealthily hps and eats-you
Have to sympathize with it my child! (3)

The cow black that gives milk white-that
Indeed is a nice and good cow my child;
The dog that comes around with its wagging tail it
Is a great friend of a man my child! (4)

The good horse that pulls the cart – paddy crop
Tilled by the bull in brown nice;
The goat that depends on us for life – all these
To be taken care of by us, my child! (5)
