On one freezing morning of last week December 2019 in Vikaspuri, West Delhi, I came across a pair of street dogs with a few puppies snuggled close to them with their eyes shut.
They looked so cute and I had a strong temptation to click their photograph with my cellphone, but I didn’t have the heart to take advantage of their adversity without doing anything to help them. I do regret, I must admit, losing a great photo-op that day, but I console myself with the thought that I may get a better opportunity next time in happier circumstances.
On my way home that evening, however, I got a pleasant surprise. The dogs were enclosed in a shed with some food kept there for them.
Well, I guess, there is a Jesus inside each one of us who understands what it is to be born to be homeless, hungry, and shiver through cold, chilly nights…
May God bless that Good Samaritan who made this arrangement for the family.
