A VERY FASCINATING EVENT -MODI JI AND DOG
Narendra Modi visited many many countries from 2014 onwards, some of his visits being landmark first time visits.
It has always been western tradition to gift young puppy dogs to visiting leaders by leaders of other nations.
Japanese Prime Minister Abe – decided to be the first PM in the world to gift a Dog to the PM. After he had gifted dogs to other leaders before – like to Vladimir Putin and others.
This breed is a Japanese breed called SHIBA Inu. It is supposed to be a very good guard dog and it is rare in other countries. Abe gifted one to Putin.
Now Abes Foreign Minister contacted the Indian Consulate and informed them that Abe planned to gift an Shiba Inu Dog to PM Modi as a mark of good faith and to ensure that the Dog developed a following in India (Which is full of Lab dogs)
Modiji did not have an issue but he did ask one question. “What is a Shiba Inu?” – PM Modi asked and his advisors said “It is a Japan native dog”. He then asked – what dogs are native to other countries and the advisors gave him a list saying that some dogs were native to Russia, USA, UK, China etc etc. PM Modi then asked the Young Assistant “And India? What is native to India” – Promptly the youngster grinned and told him “Street Dogs…”
For a flash Modi felt angry at the young man and then he realized the young man was right. India did not have their own native breed (Actually India has many native breeds like Rampur Dog or Rajapalayam but they are not accredited overseas breeds apparently.
So Modi directly said “I dont want any foreign breed dog. If i decide to have a pet i will have a Desi Kutta”
He since started a Progam to spend Rs. 15,000/- of his own money every month to Feed many such dogs regularly to a known welfare group. He also began to start inquiring how to get a fully Indian breed get a global name.
THE DOG RETIREMENT POLICY
As part of his research- Modi made more inquires and found out Security Dogs and Military Dogs would be separated from their owners on the owners retirement and would die in a few months out of loneliness. After the loss of Kala – a Lab Dog that Modi had befriended in his security team due to such a reason. Modi decided to change history.
Modi changed the Fate of Military Dogs. He passed an order which stated that Military Dogs and Security Dogs which spent at least 3 years with their last trainer shall be permanently given to that Trainer who shall have Army Quarters even after retirement until the dogs death and the Dog shall be paid Rs. 2500/- per month for its food and upkeep.
He also keeps asking what type each dog is and once was told a dog cost Rs. 50 Lakhs and he was shocked at it (It may be a typo- It may have been 5 Lakhs)
Unlike other Hypocritical Leaders who take Photos with Dogs and abandon the dogs after their term is finished – MODI never says he is a dog lover. In fact he has no pet dog. He cannot take care of one and he says that neglecting an animal is equivalent to betrayal – yet he knows the name of every single dog of his security team by name and always has glucose biscuits in his pocket to feed them with permission of their handlers.
He feeds many strays and has his assistants talk of programs to have a luxembourg type dog law.
It shows that in the end – Even though Politics may have shredded his personality- when it comes to the Dumb and Naive Animals – especially Dogs – he has a kind heart and has done more for them than any PM in India especially those like Mrs Gandhi or Maneka Gandhi who call themselves “Dog Lovers”
