I do not like it at all when people tease me.


12. Like snake charmer, which other people depend on animals for their livelihood?

Ans. Besides snake-charmers, many people like milkman, poultry farmers, tonga-wala, farmer, washerman etc. depend on animals for their livelihood.


13. Talk to some people in your neighbourhood who keep one or more animals for their livelihood for example, a horse for a tonga, hence for eggs etc.

· Name is the animal they keep?

· How many animals are there?

· Is there a separate place for the animals?

· Who looks after them?

· What do the animals eat?

· Do the animals ever fall ill? What does the keeper do then?

· Make some more questions and discuss.

· Make a report on your project and read it our in class.

Ans. There is a milkman who lives near my house. He has kept five cows. There is a separate construction for these cows. The calves are kept at some distance away from the cows. Milkman and his wife look after them. The cows eat fodder, grasses, etc. Sometimes when any cow falls ill, it is treated by a veterinary doctor. These cows give plenty of milk. By selling this milk, the milkman earns his livelihood.


14. The government has made a law that no one can catch and keep snakes. What do you think about this law? Give reasons for your answer and write in your own words.

Ans. I think this law is in the interest of animals. I have seen many animals being used for entertainment and as means for earning livelihood, such as in circus, with snake charmers, etc. Of course they take care of these animals because they earn their livelihood from them, but I think the animals would be happy only if they are allowed to live freely in their natural habitat. Nobody wants slavery.

Further, if any animals does any mistake during the training or the show, the trainer torture it, which is really pathetic.

Apart from these, many hunters and poachers kill animals for their skins, tusks, horns etc. After making the law, such activities are checked so I think it is a good move.
