On behalf of Ramakrishna Senior Secondary School, Neeti Gupta, a student of Class VIII was given an opportunity to share her views on the observance of World Animal Day on October 4, 2020 through virtual platform.
She started with Charles Darwin’s quotation – “ The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man.”
The speaker through her impressive note made everyone realise the need to celebrate this day annually – to protect the rights as well as raise the status of animals in order to improve their welfare across the globe.
She insisted on creating a world where animals are recognised as sentient beings and develop a compassionate culture towards them.
She highlighted the fact that the day started off as the way to make the world aware of the plight of the endangered species and today it has evolved into a day to honour animals.
She mentioned that our mission should be to celebrate animal life in all its forms. We should build a caring and compassionate approach with the animal kingdom and be thankful for the way they enrich our lives.
