New Delhi: Twitter continued to outrage over the killing of a pregnant elephant in Kerala. While Rahul Gandhi, who is an MP from Kerala, gave it a miss, his cousin and BJP leader Varun Gandhi is very vocal about it.
Rahul Gandhi shares a poetic message on World Environment Day with a photograph of elephants but says nothing about the killing of the elephant.

In contrast, BJP leader Varun Gandhi waxes philosophicak about the right to life, but not only for humans.
Cruelty to animals is not about animals, it is about the powerful victimising the weak. All life is connected. An elephant’s life or a cow’s life is of the same value karmically as any human: those who don’t see this don’t understand God.

News media is in a crisis & only you can fix it

You also know that the news media is facing an unprecedented crisis. It is likely that you are also hearing of the brutal layoffs and pay-cuts hitting the industry. There are many reasons why the media’s economics is broken. But a big one is that good people are not yet paying enough for good journalism.

At ThePrint, we invest in quality journalists. We pay them fairly and on time even in this difficult period. As you may have noticed, we do not flinch from spending whatever it takes to make sure our reporters reach where the story is. Our stellar coronavirus coverage is a good example.

This comes with a sizable cost. For us to continue bringing quality journalism, we need readers like you to pay for it. Because the advertising market is broken too.
