The Venue

As the year draws to a close, we realize that we will soon enter a new decade of the 21st century. The weather is cold in most parts of India and central India’s Bhopal is no less bearing the brunt of the icy breeze. Yet Hoshangabad Road saw a lot of footfall on Sunday afternoon in a garden opposite Scope College where Kennel Club of Bhopal and Feline Club of India jointly organized 9th and 10th All Breed Championship Dog Show with Labrador retriever Specialty as well as 7th and 8th Championship Cat Shows, (Central Zone). Both the events were jointly advertised as Bhopal Pet Show with exotic birds and animal display and took place on 29th December, 2019.

The garden was decked with stalls selling pet food and supplies that the audience had to gain access to after paying a basic fee at the entrance. The dog show area was crowded with dog lovers awing at the dogs waiting for their turn in the championship and owners happily obliged for pictures and selfies with their dogs. Most of the dogs were well trained and were not perturbed by the influx of unfamiliar dogs and people or the strangeness of the venue. Since the afternoon was sunny, many dogs could be seen napping, plonked on the grass, people stroking their bellies and clicking pictures with them. Over 350 dogs belonging to 36 different species were present in the garden with their respective owners who could be seen constantly grooming them before their turns. Weimaraner, Akita, Dachshund, French Bulldog, Husky, Chihuahua, Doberman Pincher, Great Dane, Chow Chow were some of the exotic breeds competing while Rampur Hound, Samoyed and Borzoi were also seen walking with their owners.

In a big white tent by the ongoing dog show, 250 cats of over 40 different exotic species were displayed in little cages lined up on tables with their owners sitting close by. The tent was also lined by stalls selling cat food and supplies with pictures of exotic cats that could actually be seen snoozing in their cages. The event managers requested the audience to not prod the sleeping felines as they might get grumpy before their turn on the stage which might look bad for the owners. Most of the varieties of Persian cats such as the Persian doll face, Persian Peke-face etc along with Siamese, Himalayan, Bengal, British Shorthair, Chartreux could be found in myriads of colours in the championship. A small display of parakeets, pairs of love birds, yellow cockatoos etc could be seen whistling in white cages with their owners interacting with audience trying to mimic the birds.

Diary of an Animal Lover

Diary of an Animal Lover Ayushi Sharma Since childhood I have an enormous love for animals. I have had pets all my life which include dogs, parrots, pigeons, rabbits, fish, and even cows. Currently I have two cows, two rescued dogs and more than 40 pigeons. With time I have realized that there has been no greater feeling in the world than saving a life even if it’s one at a time. I was born and brought up in Bhopal, MP and I have loved animals since the day I was born. My brother calls me a naturalist as I have always felt a strong connection with nature and animals. People say that they cannot imagine their world without their phones or Wi-Fi connection but if someone asks me I would say that I cannot imagine a world without animals. For me the life of any other creature is as much important as the life of a human being. People need to understand that animals also feel loneliness, they also get hurt. Once I rescued three dogs and five puppies from a horrible lady who used

Four Roald Dahl's Fantasy Animal Characters to take Inspiration from

For some of us recovering from the Covid scare amidst reopening of offices, reeling from the maddening media frenzy and the crashing democracy; the pages of utopian children's literature bring some much needed relief. The canon of children's literature penned by the legendary Roald Dahl has so much fantasy that too rising from difficult times that just like writers of romantic era, it's easy to just lean back on the magical weaponry to escape today's problems. Given the current scenario of the world or the times in general, frequent sojourns into the fantasy world with mystics animal hero's of Dahl won't hurt, in fact it would just uplift one's moods. On Roald Dahl's 104th birth anniversary, we celebrate the creator of mythical and charismatic animals that still charm the young and the old alike by peeking into the adventures of 4 of his inspiring fantasy creatures. After all, what better way to be carefree kids again than with mystical animal heros

Water Birds of Bhopal: Shahpura Diaries

Water Birds of Bhopal: Shahpura Diaries Meghna ‘Phoenix’ Ghatak Indian Cormorant  Every Bhopal dweller who has to commute between Manisha Market, Chunnabhatti, Kolar Road and MP Pollution Control Board, has to cross this man made water body that sits like a bowl collecting rain and sewage water. Surrounded by ornamental palm trees amidst busy traffic flowing from the B and C sectors of Arera Hills and Shahpura Area, the lake is also used for agriculture and aquaculture purposes post its construction in 1974-75. Morning and evening walks in the parks adjacent to the lake, known as Bhagwan Rhishabhdev Udhyan, brimming with young families and energetic toddlers, pushing plastic balls around, is incomplete without staring at the sky changing colors over the still steely hued water.
