In a heartwarming moment caught on cam, a Telangana state guard employee put his own life on line to save a dog from a flooding stream. In the dramatic video going viral shared by an IPS officer, the brave man can be seen risking his own life to save an abandoned dog from an increasingly flowing stream. The good Samaritan was identified as Mr. Mujeeb. In the video going viral, Mr. Mujeeb can be seen being picked up by a JCB machine and being put amid a rapidly flooding stream. The state guard employee reaches out to the abandoned dog and clutches him in his dependable arms and never lets him go till the dog is brought to the safety. The video comes days after another video of a dog saving a baby deer went viral on social media platforms.
In 2013, a shocking statistic was revealed by the Special Relief Commissioner in Odisha after a cyclone and floods wreaked havoc in the state. The SRC stated that as many as 1,487 big animals and 2,906 small animals were killed in the twin calamities.
Come 2019, and as many as 209 animals were reported dead in Assam after heavy rainfall battered the state and also caused as many as 69 people to die. These animals included deer, rhinos, wild boars, buffaloes, porcupines, and more.
As natural calamities continue to strike the nation and its civilians fight tooth and nail for their survival, it is easy to lose sight of the ecological balance that animals bring. Unfortunately, no Centre-run body gives an account of the loss of animal lives after a mishap.
Meanwhile, recently, a heartwarming video of a man putting his life on line to save a dog is making the rounds of internet. The video is highlighting the importance of caring for animals that add value and meaning to our lives.
The Facts of the Matter
Article 51 (G) of Indian constitution states- “It shall be the duty of every citizen of India to protect and improve the natural environment including forests, lakes, rivers and wild life, and to have compassion for living creatures.”
On paper the Article states that one must protect all beings around them, in the hustle and bustle around our lives, we forget our basic duties. A Telangana State Police employee thankfully didn’t forget the basic yet crucial duty and put his life on line to save a dog from an increasingly flooding stream. The entire ordeal was caught on cam and was shared by IPS officer Dipanshu Kabra. The home guard has been identified as Mr. Mujeeb.
What Does the Video Show?
The over two-minute video shows the home guard being placed in right in the middle of an overflowing stream. Initially, the brave man can be seen pulling the scared dog out of the heavy thicket and shrubs around the canine. Meanwhile, one can hear the noises of people situated at the location, cheering for the man. He carefully brings out the dog from the thickets and holds it in his dependable grasp. He then goes on to carefully place the canine up to the JCB. Through the entire ordeal, the home guard can be seen clutching the dog tightly so that it doesn’t flow away.
