It’s probably okay if you screw up a snake’s venom gland (or whatever it is called my bio friends) because the snake-charmer industry anyway is not that big ( and more so, is restricted only to few third world nations). But it’s disgusting to know that there are plans to fuck up a bee’s sting! Given that I am a non-vegetarian, I shouldn’t be getting all senti and furious on the news but, hello, I am. What are human beings upto? Genetically modifying every other creature?
Suddenly I despise the human tendency to consume more and more. If only all of us can become slow consumers, the world will deteriorate at a slower pace. This world is gonna end soon, and I am sure human beings will end up doing it even before any mega-asteroid strikes the planet.
Will someone please make these Tamil Nadu researchers see the Bee-movie? Or make them read that story on power of unity where bees when united defeated a tiger? Will we ever be able to tell this story to our children, once the researchers have succeeded? How fair is it to take away an animal’s identity only to suffice to human greed to consume more and more and in the cheapest possible way?
