Lil kindness for today

Lil kindness for today

Inside a cab on my way to the office today, me and the driver are having a morning conversation and when we are in the middle of the crowded highway, he mumbling something, opening a window and wave his hand out to the cars behind us telling them to slowdown. He start driving into the center of the midline between the highway row, he stop for a while, open the driver door and pick up this little kitten and put her onto the front seat next to him. He apologized for doing so and continue driving slowly.

He saving life and he apologize, left me quite speechless. Not because I dont like what he did, but among those cars, no one has done so and no one know how long the kitten has been throw into the street.

When he think he saving a lil kitten, the truth is he saving a lil bit of my lost soul, reminds me about unconditional kindness. I’m the one who should say thank you sir 🙂

PS. I clean the kitten and look, behind the mud we can see the cute face which found comfort on my lap until I reach the office. What a great feeling to start a day with.

An article from today newspaper ( Koran Tempo, April 18th  2008 ) mention about the use of primate for aeronautic experiments by Rusian. One of a country that known with it’s long history using primates for experiments. Laboratories in Sochi Institute of Medical Primatology at Vesyoloye develop a breeding colony of 3.000 long tailed monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) to support the aeronautic space programes. The aim of the experiment is to see the radiation effect in Mars towards the monkeys before sending the human. The project will be start in the early of next year simultaneously with Mars-500 project, a project of inter planets flight simulation programe. The monkeys were use because its similarity with the human and will be observed through its respond towards weightless condition, isolation, diet with juice and sterile food during the experiments.


The critic came from animal lovers all around the world. Andrei Zbarsky from WWF suggested other alternative for the experiments reffering to hundreds of animal that have been use each year for cosmetical or biomedical research.
