Equal Partners

By Roland Ezri

"Women are the backbone of all societies. They do a substantial part of the work, and play a major role in raising the future generation yet they are largely powerless. The decisions that count are made by men and foisted upon women."

Writings by Roland Ezri

Time – II. Animals and Time

Animals are governed by time just like we are. But they cannot conceive of it the way humans do.

In the wild, animals will carry their daily activities when the sun rises and go to sleep at sunset; or vice-versa if they are nocturnal. They will mate, have their offsprings and care for them, in the right season.

Animals living among humans can adapt to the rhythm of human life. The ones that couldn’t were never domesticated in the first place. A dog as a pet will take naps during the day, and will be ready to exercise vigorously when its master takes it out. It has that uncanny ability to know when it’s time to go out, and if need be, will bring the leash to its forgetful master. A police dog on the other hand has a job. It works hard during the day and sleeps at night. If necessary, it can be wakened up from its sleep and will be ready to go.

For some 19 years, we had a lovebird, Squeaky. Squeaky adapted to the daily routine of our family. It napped during the day, and by 4:00, when the children came back from school, it was ready to play with them. It stayed up till 10:00. Even at this very late hour, it protested vigorously when we put it to sleep.
