Sparrows ~

Well, I didnt get anyone to teach me any Telugu/Tamil profanities .. and since my mind is always in search of some 'awesome' knowledge (in Sorcy's words), I decided to try my hand at drawing sparrows.




Halfway through drawing sparrows, I lost my concentration, and finished off my 'masterpiece' (??!!) as shown above !


P.S : Am gonna draw a sparrow soon. Unfortunately, I am off birds since today evening. I went out with my friends to a Chinese place, and my friend was served chicken FEET (with all fingers (?) distinguishable) . I could not look at her plate. All the time, my poor sparrows kept coming to my mind :(

Thanks for the back-link to my blog and the copyright infringement on the word "Awesome".

Hey, Hi
chicken is good...i donno abt sparrows, but i second sorcy on that, it may taste the same...
there is a friday market here, they sell all kinda meat...actually allkinda animals..live...we can buy n cook them...my friends bought geese the last time..(assuming it to be wild ducks!!)
and had an "awesome" roast!!

the drawing is good...(though a distant relative of sparrow) colour pencils is it?

Regards,
The Silhouette...

Wow the drawing is beautiful..

My Thoughts and I said...

Even though your quest for a more colourful vocab was unsuccessful, I've got to tell you Deepa that the comments section of that post was mosteducational! Talk about a war of words!

Nice sketch. All I can manage are face doodles!

As for you being put off by chicken legs.....sorry girl but c'mon, chicken!!!!! Hard core non-veggie here!

Don't worry though. That chicken is in Chicken Heaven, clucking about merrily knowing it served its purpose in life, namely sacrificed itself to feed the hungry!!!

Slurrrrrrrp! :D

2 Sorcy :
aaarggggggggh !!! animals for breakfast ... no way !!
heh heh .. you think 'awesome' is the only thing i am going to infringe on ??? Just you wait and watch !

2 Eon :
Koooi !
Very very distant relative of sparrow ... it seems to be a blue bird had something to do with a duck .. and hence this result !! Seriously, you guys eat feet too ????

2 Bikram :
as it is i do not eat birds and animals ... but on top of it , chicken FEET ??? seriously ?

2 MTaI :
heylooo !!
heh heh heh .. i didnt do anything to contribute !! I was a silent spectator offering words of comfort to both sides ;)
it is not legs .. its is feet ,, with all 5 (?) fingers !

Kiddy said...

I love this drawing!It's a Masterpiece DEEPA! It's so expressive like I am.You should pursue drawing and painting as a career. You must have studied it.I like the colors that you have painted the sparrows.And the story:That boy sparrow likes that girl perched up higher,and that girl behind him is giving him a nasty look,he must be scared of what that girl sparrow will do to him.She looks like a female molester to me.But,the only thing that I don't like is the ceramic tile,it's what everybody has in their bathrooms and kitchens anymore.I'm glad you have gained the concept about how beautifully God decorated you DEEPA.

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

hey Kiddy .... thank you !
nopes .. i havent studied painting/drawing ... was just in the mood one day .... its not a ceramic tile .. its something else ... its actually one corner of my bedroom floor ...

Eon Heath said...

@Deepa
eh well, a few do eat feet...i prefer the meatier parts..
;-)

AbhiLaSH RuHeLa said...

nice drawing

Kiddy said...

Uff is an expression we use in Iceland for a relief about this not being ceramic tile on your bedroom floor.But,why don't you have carpet in your bedroom?Don't you like your enviorment soft and cozy?It's hard for me to believe that you did not study art,it must be a gift from God then.It's amazing having a natural potential that you don't study and train for.You draw so different from all other artists.Maybe it's time for you to pick up a brush and do a few strokes to discover this natural potential that God has given you.Are you weird too like artists are?

Kiddy said...

*Shudder* Bare floors.There was a rumor going around my boarding school that our math teacher slept stripped down naked bare in front of the window no matter how cold, because he was a health nut and he jogged, which was unheard of in 69-70 and considered crazy back then.I suppose he felt clothes cut off his ciculation or something.You're not that crazy are you?

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

@ Eon ... now it was my turn to laugh imagine Sorcy's expression .... not bad not bad .. your kannada makes sense !

@ Kiddy ... Well, i prefer bare floors any day .... oh .. i dont sleep naked however !

Jack said...

Deepa,

May I have this masterpiece? No jokes.

A couple of time I saw chicken being slaughter and then I even saw a goat being slaughtered. The loud whimpering and later dazed look in the eyes of separated heads haunted me. So I just could not bear to eat non-veg again. That was in Jan 1995.

Take care

Sorcerer said...

Hahahahahaha
ROFLMAO!!!


Deepa you dont eat all those tasty things on earth like Meat and chicken and meat.

So..You eat Grass?Way down the food chain you are..Even grasshoppers are above you in the food chart.and frogs too..

Do grass give you gas?..[That kinda rhymed]

Sorcy ,

@Jack now I'm really gonna enjoy eating my delicous meat after seeing your descripiton of the slaughter scene,thanks.After all God made these animals for us to survive on earth.

Sorcerer said...

:O
Eating green green things that makes oxygen and cleans up the air?
Have you ever thought about the dreams of a lil tomato seed..to grow into a plant..have tomato babies etc etc.
you EAT IT?
Eat the dreams of a TOMATO?

Civilized!!!
*rolls eyes
MOoooooooooooooooooo!!!!

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

Sorcy,

Oye ... those green things .. I jsut eat one round .. in your case, smthg eats those green things, and then you eat those somethings ... two rounds of pollution compared to my one !

Did you ever think of the dreams of a poor hen ? lay a egg .. egg hatch to baby hens ? and those baby hens grow up to hatch eggs, and our initial hen turns into a grandma hen ..

and did you think of the dreams of a poor baby hen ? I am sure it didnt dream of having its FOOR coated with weird looking masala and sauce !

Sorcerer said...

@Deepa
Hens doesn't have dreams.Nor they have time to..they just peck around.
Contrary to that theory...
Most hens dreams of shedding their fur and look awesomely naked on a dining table.

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

Sorcyyyyyyyyyyyyyy !!!@!! Stop being perverted okkkkkkkkk !!! ... just bcoz creatures belonging to other specie turn you on , it doesn't mean the same works for the chicken specie .. hummff .. you actually think the chicken/hen dreams of lying naked on YOUR dining table ... hmmfff !

I still have that mental image of that girl in your kitchen Sorcy and catching her and her future hubby in the act,I always thought it was on the kitchen counter,right? I really feel for you for having witnessed it in the flesh,it's bad enough for me who just read your account about it.Are you OK now? Was she naked too like a bird not a jail one though ?

Anonymous said...

Hey Sorcerer,
Weather you eat Non-veg or not, but the main ideal behind practicing vegetarianism, is to have the mind in pure form, where there are no ugly thoughts in the mind.

Its of no value if you practice vegetarianism, while you have all ugly and meanminded thinking with in your mind. Please note that A thought arising in the Mind is the driving force behind the Physical actions that are exhibited by an individual.

Once you clean up the Mind, then, you will start to calm down the Mind, due to which, you will regain your realization that you are not limited to just a fleshy body or mind, but all pervading. Even for a split second, if you experience this universal oneself, then you will stop harming others, be it fellow humans or other animals or even plants, but going to the extent of refraining from plants really takes oneself to attain the state of universal oneness irrespective of time.

I have seen people who donot eat non-veg, but who have been a host to a bunch of crrocked thoughts about others. There is no point in being like this.

If you first practice keeping mind in pure form, then, you will naturally, end up not harming others, be them fellow humans or be them animals. Till then, it really doesnot matter weather you eat veg or non-veg. But one thing you need to be aware of is that, killing is an action(negative) that you are causing to other animals due to your merely physical habit of eating, it will have its negative consequences, with respect to the law of KARMA. If you help others, this will be neutralized. There is a lot more to eating veg or non-veg and a very broader perspective exists behing vegetarianism. Simply put, in Bhagavadgeetha, Lord Krishna says "Iam in every individual, just like the way a thread in the garland exists in each and every individual flower or Bead of the garland". Also, Lord Krishna says, "Nirvaira Sarva Bhuteshu", which means having no enemity towards any individuality, which means, including oneself, others & even animals and Plants.

Since we cannot stop eating everything in one shot and incur death, since, self infliction or suicide is also not correct, as this again boils down to harming self, we have to step-by-step, try to attain towards perfection. Atleast we should try, rather than justifying our weakness in different ways. Can't we control our toungue for atleast 1 year with out non-veg?

Kiddy said...

Ano,in other words mind over matter,replace for example the lust that arises in a female subject looking at Sorcy,with another thought that is: Distraction.

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

@ Hari ... heh heh heh .. angane vidaanpattuvo ?
Count was right .. what happ to me must hav happened to Sorcy too .. initially when i read your comment, i read it as 2 males and 2females => 4 ... then, i re-read you comment and realised what you meant .. avanne kshamikku ... avande maanasika state ippol athrekku shari alla ...

@ Anony : Thanks for your comment. It was for Sorcerer, but I enjoyed reading it. Well ... i had a doubt .. are ginger, asafoetida (hing) also thamsik/rajaswik ? and milk ?

You said ::
"Since we cannot stop eating everything in one shot and incur death, since, self infliction or suicide is also not correct, as this again boils down to harming self, we have to step-by-step, try to attain towards perfection." ...
it this a justification of veg over non-veg ? as it prevents two fold killing ?

To all those who eat Meat for the purpose of Tase, rather than for the purpose of hunger and out of desperation, I have one Challenge. If you pass this challenge, then you can be considered to be not even worth talking about eating Vegetarian at all, and then, I can leave it up to you to learn the lesson through the Mother nature. Afterall, Swami Vivekananda says that "Man learns for sure only when Nature slaps left and right ruthlessly". And we need these ruthless slaps to wake someone who is in deep sleep or one who is pretending to be asleep. Its quiet natural.



Now coming to the challenge, two things you can do to test where you are:

Test1.Go to a butcher shop, play with a chicken for a while, feel it with your hands and feed it some food grains to it. Now, give take from the butcher , his Knife, and with all your concentration , see from the beginning, how you can slit the Chicken in to pieces, from the beginning where you by your self take out its life and see how it struggles for its life.At this time, just try to recollect your past times, where you have felt "Why me getting this kind of troubles" or "Why me getting this kind of troubles".

once you successfully pass this test No.1 and still feel like eating the Chicken, then go on to Next test No.2.

Test2.You take a Knife today, with all your Concentration focussed on your your hand, try to slowly slit your Hand or make a small would or cut in your hand. If you can do it to your self, then, you are atleast somewhat worthy eating non-veg, on the grounds that you have no sensitivity towards your own self, so its natural to have insensivity towards others. So, you can go on in your life and keep eating Non-veg food, and not worry too much about your food habit. Its even waste to get indulged in veg or non-veg related heated exchanges as its waste of time for both parties.

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

Anony,

I don't think I can stay at a butcher shop for even a minute.

We worship the cow, so I cannot stand the sight of a cow being killed. Not just that, I do not approve of cruelty to any animal.

You know .. to a certain extent, you are what you eat... as a rule, I do not eat garlic. But if by chance, I've eaten smtgh that has garlic, I sense the chnage. So, one reason why we do not eat meat is because the hormones that a animal emits when scared are enough to cause unwanted changes in the human body. See the effect of blood by feeding a vegetarian dog meat. It is very visible.

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

Further,
Nature - a nurturing form is enhanced by sattvika practices, and hence Hindu philosophy does not encourage the eating of animals, or the destruction of nature and its habitats.
Sattva is a state of mind in which the mind is steady, calm and peaceful. A cow is a typical example. Eating animals brings our aggression, as can be see in wild animals. Hindu philosophy encouraged non vegetarianism in cases where necessary e.g. for kings who needed an aggressive temperament. Similarly with dogs ... they need aggression, and their nature is to be carnivorous. But not with man.

As man became civilised, he gave up meat for agriculture. Undeniable fact. And now .. ??

Anonymous said...

You are right Deepa. Food habits have an effect on our general behavior and hence its better to have a food that is helpful in carrying our day to day duties and responsibilities.

Nere killing of something for pleasure is going to incur lot of sin, while doing so out of compulsion for very own survival will incur considerably lower sin.
Even if we take the law of Karma(issue of Sin) aside, we should atleast give respect to other individuals from the perspective of Universal Oneness. I have seen that If I maintain my self in such a state where I even hesitate to harm a small ant, then, I have not gotten any harm done to me by any other individual(be it even an animal). If we can respect others same as our own self, we incur the same respect from other individauls. but if we stop respecting others for our pleasures, then, you get back the same treatment. Simple.


Please read some more in below conversation between a world renowned saint and his master on this topic. Below is a link to a chapter in Autobiography of a Yogi, and in this chapter, search for hte word Mosquito and start reading from there until the topic on Mosquito gets over. You will get an idea that its a balance that we need to make while trying to proceed towards a state where we are free from the slavery to the senses. If this balance is not there, this causes unnecessasary troubles.
