Irony in a Mango Farm

Bees are happy:

Mango flowers.

Monkeys are happy:

Raw mangoes.

Birds are happy:

Mango fruits.

Humans are happy:

Pesticides, electric fences, savage dogs, scarecrows…

Note: near our family’s organic farm, I came across several mango farms/orchards using harsh measures to increase/protect yields.

Couldn’t help thinking: though nature is common to all, why do humans try to corner everything for themselves? Can’t we leave at least a portion for other life?

While all other life seems content with what nature provides, we constantly seek happiness outside the realm of nature.

The irony is: it is the ‘nature’ of mankind!
