  2. 2. Gizmo our beautiful Labrador dog came in our house and commanded love and pampering as well! He did not articulate his emotions in words. But his presence was extraordinarily cheerful, vitalizing and elating. His every gesture exuded immense love and involvement in us. His looking, His licking, his rubbing, his asking for food, his asking for going out and everything had a subtle power to exalt us beyond our frail linguistic framework.

When Gizmo was transferred to kennel everyone felt as if a lump of his/her flesh was lost! Tears gathered in my eyes, with deep sense of loss!
  4. 4. Gradually and with great difficulty I articulated my own feelings and dialogued with myself. I tried to decipher my relationship with Gizmo. I re-explored the genuine, innocent and spontaneous love to which the deep shelf of my heart had become deserted. I realized the petty subjectivity, vanity and mediocrity, of my indifference to animals and their trivialization in my mind.
  5. 5. In Gizmo I could now breathe the unspoken and hidden love in my heart for universe. Verily my interactions with Gizmo restored the capacity to love, love unconditionally and unhesitatingly.
