Sugar - Sweet or Bitter ?

We were on our way to Shani Shignapur to take blessing from Shani God. Our Maruti halted at its destined location for refreshment. I was thrilled to see sugarcane juice extracted using animal power. Juice was extracted by making the cow move round the wooden rollers which crushed the sugarcane. We had a refreshing sugarcane juice.

The juice did refresh me but then I felt, how monotonous it was for the animal to move round the rollers for the whole day and then get a hit on the back for every increase in demand for juice from the people.

Sugar may be sweet and refreshing for us but bitter for them.

Hey man, though i got the point you were trying to convey, U have to accept that the fact that this happens in life.

Also i agree with Neo if i thought so much i would have to stop eating non-veg. :-)

#Neo & Cedric: My only motive behind this post was to highlight their plight and not reciprocating to the situation:)

Yes, that is a fact of life and I was just trying to focus on one such part of life. May be, I should have been more clear on that;)
