Ja jaldi bhaag jaa nahin baba nahin

Posted on: February 27, 2013

It has been quite a while since I last talked about my dogs. I have in fact so many things to talk about them that I do not know where to begin.

I had discussed it in the past that my dogs, especially Chhote, the younger one would run away from the home. Sometimes Bhhole, the senior of the two , would also run behind Chhote, mainly to accompany him.

Once they ran away, their human master/ mistresses were required to go after them and catch them. Bhhole was easier to catch. If one caught Bhhole then Chhote too would come back and would allow himself to be caught after playing hard to get.

It was obvious that the dogs wanted to go out of the house daily. The normal way for the pet dogs to go out is when their owners take them out for walk, with the dogs duly tied up on a leash. But taking the dogs out regularly was a gruelling task and neither my wife nor daughter were up to it. And moreover, it was not possible for one person to take both dogs out simultaneously. The dogs were far too powerful for them, despite the dogs weighing only around 20 Kg each against 40 + and 50+ Kg weights of my daughter and wife respectively.

With the two dogs growing up to be two years old each, they began to give a hard time to my wife and daughter because of their eagerness to go out. Bhhole in fact began to request my wife to let him go out. He would stand on his rear legs and support his front limbs against my wife and request to be let out. After a few days, my wife relented and allowed him to go out on his own. Soon Chhote too was allowed to go out on his own. But the dogs normally would not come back on their own. They would have to be called back.

One day, Chhote for some reason attacked a goat which was passing nearby. Perhaps Chhote took offence to the fact that the goat was passing through his area which he and Bhhole had made their own by chasing out the local street dogs. As could be expected, Chhote’s attack on the goat did not go down well with the goat’s owner. My wife began to worry about the safety of Chhote. She decided that Chhote should be sent away. After lots of thoughts, it was decided that Chhote should stay with me. Since Bhhole cannot stay without Chhote, so it meant that Bhhole too must accompany him. So in effect, Chhote and Bhhole (the later for no fault of his) were externed out of the state of MP and were exiled to Chhattisgarh. So the two dogs are staying with me since december 2012.

My place is surrounded by high brick walls in the front and by asbestos sheets in the rear. Though the area within the boundary is quite spacious, the dogs soon became bored and they insisted on being taken out of the compound for walk. Since taking both of them out simultaneously was a tough job, I would take only one of them with me, and the other dog would be left protesting.

One day I found both dogs missing from the compound. It became clear to me that the dogs had discovered some breach in the asbestos sheet walls in the rear and they had slipped away. It was a vast colony outside the walls and I was worried that the two dogs would go far and will be unable to find their way back. I went out (from the front gate, of course), and searched for the dogs. I found them roaming around almost half a kilometer away. With great difficulty I managed to catch the two dogs by their collars and brought them home.

Next morning, when I let them out of the home and let them move around inside the compound, I found the two dogs racing towards the rear. I quickly followed them. I ordered them to go back to the front. Bhhole obeyed me but Chhote vanished into the tall vegetation. I realised what had happened. Chhote had escaped out through the same breach that he had discovered one day ago.

I tied Bhhole up and went out (through the main gate, and not through the tiny breach in the rear, of course) with Bhhole. After hearing the sound of dogfight, I went there with Bhhole. I could see a dog chasing Chhote. When Chhote saw us, he regarded us as his reinforcements and began to chase that dog instead. The dog too thought the same way and beat a retreat. When I called Chhote out, he would not listen. He kept racing away and away. He went inside a club and then out of it, then went to a school and out of it, and then into an office and out of it, and raced towards the road leading to the nearby market place. He would have continued to run ahead, but then he noticed a tiny while Pomerian dog on a walk with its owner. He approched the pooch, unnerving the dog as well as his owner. Chhote meant no harm, he was only taking a close look at a dog of his own colour. I requested the dog owner to stand still so that I may be able to catch hold of Chhote. The man helped and after one failed attempt, I managed to grab Chhote’s collar belt and I tied up a leash on his collar that I had brought with me. With two dogs tied up on two leashes, I began to return back, pleased with myself. At that time Chhote played his special trick. He slipped his head out of the collar and escaped, and I was left holding the leash and the collar belt in my hand. He ran in a different direction, viz towards the railway station. I gave up on him and began to go back with Bhhole towards the home. After some time I found Chhote running towards us and going past us. I told myself and Bhhole not to take any notice of him.

I, alongwith Bhhole went back home. I phoned my wife and told her about the happenings. She told me that he would come back after a few hours when he felt hungry. I was not sure, because Chhote did not seem to confine himself to nearby areas. He may have found out the way to go out, but does he know the return way to come in ? I did not think so.

It was at about 12-30 in the afternoon when I Heard Bhhole give a special bark. This bark indicates that someone familiar is outside. I looked out and what do I see ! It was Chhote, standing outside, dirtied upto this stomach in muck. When I opened the door, he raced in. I closed the door and phoned my wife for further instructions. Bathe him, and then tie him up. Make sure that he is punished for his act. I was told. I bathed him as instructed and soon he began to look white. I tied him up while Bhhole was moving around freely.

Next day (saturday), I kept Chhote tied up while Bhhole was allowed to roam around free as a reward for his faithfulness and obedience in not escaping. I went inside the home. A brief while later, I came out and what did I find ? This time it was Bhhole who had vanished from the compound !

Chhote had come back somehow, but what about Bhhole ? Can he find his way back, I worried. In the afternoon, I heard Chhote getting restless in a special way. I went out to have a look. I found that Bhhole was back ! Dirtied up to his stomach in muck. Like I had done with Chhote the previous day, I bathed Bhhole till he began to look clean again. This time I tied up both of them.

Next day (sunday), I thought that the two dogs must have learnt their lesson and they would not escape again. So I set them free. As soon as I did that, Chhote raced towards the rear , followed by Bhhole and both of them escaped out of the compound.

This time I became angry at this disobedience. I decided that I did not want to have anything to do with such dogs. The whole day passed and it became night. It was 10 PM at night when I heard the familiar noises. I had locked the main door and had decided to keep the dogs waiting. Chhote called out, asking to be let in. I did not respond for half an hour. Seeing Chhote’s charms not working, Bhhhole, who was silent till then, began to bark softly to urge me to let them in. I did not respond. By about 11 PM, the voices of the dogs began to betray nervousness. What would we do if we we were not allowed in- that kind of nervousness. Soft that I am , I let the dogs in, but only till the first room. I did not allow them to come to the bed room or the hall. As it is, they like to sleep in the same room with me, so not allowing them to sleep in the same room was a punishment for them and they realised it.

By next morning, they were quite hungry but this time I was determined to teach them a lesson. I did not allow them to come inside but opened the main door of the house. After some time, when I went out, I found the dogs missing ! They had once again escaped- while they were still quite hungry. Was I a bit too harsh on them, I wondered.

It was a working day, being monday. So I left for the office with an empty feeling because both dogs were missing and I was not sure that they would come back again.

When I came back at lunch time, what did I see ! I found Bhhole waiting for me inside the compound. But where is Chhote ? Chhote was nowhere to be found. I was worried. Bhhole, who in the past had gone out of his way to protect Chhote had come back without him. Was there someting wrong ! I phoned my wife. She worried that Chhote must have met the normal fate of Indian dogs, viz he must have been crushed under some vehicle and that is the reason Bhhole had come back alone. Was Bhhole looking sad, she asked me. No, he did not look sad when he saw me, though he had become subdued in the evening.

Chhote did not come back by night. He did not come back by next morning either. While I was coming back home at lunch time, I decided to go have a look for him in the nearby roads. But I could not see him.

I became more and more worried. Only if I could get Bhhole to tell me about Chhote’s whereabouts.

Since Bhhole would not talk, I decided to read about dogs on internet to find out what may have happened. I was interested to find about the behaviour of dogs towards their companion dogs. I read that a Siberian dog, on finding his companion dog run over by a vehicle had dragged the body of his dead companion to the pavement and he would protect the body for several days, trying to wake him up. That gave me some hope. But I could not find an explanation why Bhhole may have abandoned Chhote.

While reading up about dogs, I read that dogs were required to be commanded rather than treated with affection. A dog which looked happy when his owners came home was in fact a disturbed dog whose dancing around his owner was in fact giving vent to his frustation. I also found that human being must exercise dominance over dogs and become their leader. Otherwise the dog assumed leadership of the humans around him. As a leader, he worries about protecting his followers. When human beings are not around him, the leader dog gets disturbed because he is in no position to protect the humans. When such dogs are taken out on walk, they walk ahead of the humans dragging them with them. On the other hand, well adjusted dogs walk behind (or adjacent to) the humans.

I hung my head in shame on reading all this. It was obvious that we had brought up the two dogs in the worst possible manner. No wonder the two dogs were so disturbed and they were looking to run away all the time, I concluded.

My wife and daughter began to blame me for the demise of Chhote.

On the night of tuesday, I heard Bhhole give his special bark. I eagerly went out, and I found Chhote there ! I eagerly let him in and phoned my wife giving her this news.

I finally managed to locate the breach from where the dogs were escaping and I plugged that breach by putting heavy bricks, branches etc there. Then I allowed them to roam free. Soon I heard the sound of bricks being removed. I ran out to the place and found that Chhote had removed all the heavy bricks etc in no time and he was ready to escape once again. Seeing me, he was unable to escape. I tied him up.

No matter how much I tried, I found that Chhote could not be dissuaded from his tendency to run away. I plugged that breach more securely, but one fine day I found the two dogs missing once again. They had escaped once again, and this time from a different breach in the wall which were opened up by them, I suspected.

I gave up on them and I stopped looking for them. Let them live like stray dogs if they so desire, I thought. Bhhole came back after two days. Chhote was missing and there was no sign of him. He did not come for six days and this time my wife once again began to blame me for the demise of Chhote.

After six days, Bhhole became restless at night and insisted on being let out of the home. He ran out towards the escape route. As soon as he ran out, I found a hungry and weak looking Chhote limp in from the other direction ! Half an hour later, Bhhole too arrived back and was pleased to see Chhote.

After all this running away and coming back, now I have entered into an informal arrangement with the dogs. I feed then well and allow them to go out through their secret escape route. I have let that route remain unplugged. The dogs carry out their walks outside and then they come back. When it is time for me to go to office, I tie them up inside the house. They are game for being tied up, because they know that I would set them free and allow them to go out after I come back.

So my dogs go out on their morning and evening and also noon walk on their own and come back too. That saves me the trouble of taking them out on their walk. That way my dogs have the best of both the worlds. They enjoy the privileges of being pets and they also get to roam around freely like street dogs.

I have become a good dog chef. The dogs love the stuff I feed them. I find that they love eating all the stuff that humans love, irrespective of what the dog experts say. The dogs love eating slice bread, poori, samosa, jalebi etc in addition to their usual stuff. My milkman is happy because I take twice the normal amount of milk from him. I have realised that the two dogs get to drink almost the entire quantity of milk. Imagine the two dogs drinking half a litre milk each daily ! In fact these dogs do not drink water. They take fluids mainly in the form of milk and their favourite soup.

What job do they do while they stay with me ? I tried to train them to bring newspaper that is thrown by the newspaperman inside the compound. Initially Bhhole would bring the Hindi newspaper in and leave the English newspaper untouched. But after a few days he decided that being a newspaper delivery dog was not for him. In fact he would not let Chhote to take up the job either. He pulls the rear leg of Chhote and brings him down if Chhote offers to bring the newspaper home. So in effect the dogs are no good in this job.

Bhhole barks fiercely whenever some visitor enters the compound. He has been barking at the milkman for the last two months, but now he seems to have realised that the milkman is no intruder.

I called one vet to my home to give the dogs their vacceines. At that time I had tied the two dogs up to some poles. Bhhole barked at the vet fiercely, making the vet nervous. He had to give Bhhole an injection that is painful to dogs. I restrained Bhhole while I held him. Bhhole did not even wince while being injected and the vet was quite impressed with Bhhole for that.

I was troubled by mice when I stayed alone. The problem would be over whenever I had my pets stay with me. In the past it was the cat nuppy who would take care of the mice. Now the two dogs have taken this responsibility for killing the mice upon themselves. I am ofter woken up late at night when I find the two dogs disturbing the furniture looking for the mouse. I assist them by moving the furniture and the two dogs grab the mouse as soon as the mouse gets exposed to them.

Both dogs have their own unique mannerisms. Bhhole likes to walk around while grabbing a chew bone in the corner of his mouth, much like how a Clint Eastwood or Sherlock Holmes or Rajnikant would grab a cigarrette in the mouth.

Leaving the dogs alone if I have to go out for a day or more is a problem. The dogs feel insecure when they do not see me. Now a days I leave the dogs in the open if I have to go out for upto a day. They have stayed out for upto two days (in case of Bholey) and six days (in case of Chhote) but my guess is that they miss the comforts of home badly. Where will they get to eat regularly and get to sleep inside the house anywhere they feel like. If I have to go out for one day then I let the dogs out of the house within the compound. They go out of the compound and come back as they please.

Recently I had to go out for nearly a week. And I was worried about the dogs. My wife took leave and came alongwith our daughter (whose school was in any case closed for winter vaction) and they took care of the dogs. The dogs ran away from the house even then. They found out that the dogs had struck friendship with a pair of dogs that lived nearby and they were usually seen in their company. While going there to bring them back, my wife and daughter found four abandoned pups and brought all of them home. Two out of these four malnourished and ordinary looking pups opted to stay inside the compound while the other two went out of the compound and went back where they were found.

While going to my office, I would leave the two pup free inside the compound whereas Chhote and Bhhole were kept tied up. We had decided that we would bring up these pups as dogs as prescribed in the materials on dogs that I had read, instead of spoiling them like Chhote. I found that kids staying in the neighbourhood perstered the pups while I was away. They would tie rope around the pups’ neck, for instance, which I then had to untie or cut with a scissor. Finding the two pups greet me when I came hope was a great and priceless experience.

One evening I found only one pup greet me instead of two. I wondered what had happened to the other pup. Unlike Chhote who had come back after six days, this missing pup never came back. I hope that the pup was taken away by the neighbourbood kids (as hoped by my wife) and hopefully he did not meet any unfortunate end. I found that the single pup was feeling lonely. The two pups gave each other company while I was keeping the two pups outside the home. I began to keep the pup inside the home (in the front room) so that he may not feel lonely.

The pup has been named as Kabra Singh, since it is “Chitkabra” in colour, viz predominantly white with brown patches. He tries to play with the two dogs. Bhhole plays with Kabra Singh. Chhote, who kept his distance for some time has begun to warm up to him as well. Unlike the grown up dogs, Kabra Singh mostly stays within the compound. I found a rope tied up on his neck when I came home one night. From then onwards I have decided to keep him inside the home alongwith the two bigger dogs. Once I kept the dogs outside the home within the compound while I went to the office. Om my return at lunch time, I found that Chhote was not there whereas Bhhole and Kabra Singh were together inside the compound. With Bhhole guarding Kabra Singh, no child or for that matter even their “Baap” could touch Kabra Singh, of course.

All three

Of late Chhote too has warmed up to Kabra Singh. I find it interesting to see Bhhole and Chhote teaching Kabra Singh the tricks of dogfight. Chhote teaches him how to grab the neck of the opponent while Bhhole teaches him how to pull the opponent down by pulling his rear legs. Kabra Singh tries these tricks on his gurus themselves and his gurus play along.

Chhote likes to sit on chair. Kabra Singh has begun to ape him and these days he sits on a small stool in Chhote style and looks at me in shifty eyed manner, just like Chhote.

Recently, I had to leave the dogs behind for 36 hours while I went out for an urgent work. I left at night and kept the dogs outside the home. While I was going out of the compound through the main gate, Chhote too slipped out. He began to wander around. He saw a big black dog sleeping. Chhote went to that dog, woke him up and began to fight with him. Another big dog joined his colleague. Much to my surprise, Chhote fought off both the dogs and forced them both to run away. I grabbed Chhote by his collar and brought him back to the home and sent him back inside the compound.

36 hours later, when I arrived back early morning, I found Bhhole and Chhote wandering on the road near the home. Finding me back, they came to me. I took them inside the home and fed them. Kabra Singh, who had taken shelter in the garage, too joined and they got to eat again after 36 hours.

I was looking for a song appropriate for the occasion. I think that the song “Jaa jaldi bhaag ja” from “Deshpremi” (1982) suits the situation quite nicely. Here is this cute light hearted and comical song from this movie. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Amit Kumar. It is picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and Navin Nischol. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Atul ji

Enjoyed very much reading about Bhole,Chhote and Kabra Singh.

Thanks for your patience in going through such a long writeup.

Wow! What a lovely read this was, Atul! It had me totally engrossed, from beginning to end. Didn’t skip a single word!

The escapades (literally and figuratively) of Bhhole and Chhote seem to be adventures that would make any film producer proud to make into a film. Or at least a TV series. Every episode is fascinating.

I think you’re having your hands full (once again, literally and figuratively) with your dogs. First there were two, now three (btw, warm welcome to Kabra Singh for joining the Besra household. :-)). I think you’re doing a great job of somehow taking care of all of them, not compromising on their wishes and needs, inspite of your own schedule/travel/work – and of course blog. 🙂

I don’t have dogs myself, I’m no dog-expert (maybe somebody like Greta is much more competent to comment on this than I am) but I feel one shouldn’t take material on the internet without a pinch of salt. Lots of people become “experts” and express their opinions. Best to know your dogs’ psychology and behave accordingly – as you’ve finally (after a lot of trial and error) done yourself.

If you ask me, I think dogs are very sensitive – and respond better to love than to this “leadership” style that you’ve read about. Dogs do like to go out (why not?) – so if you’re not able to take them out yourself, they will naturally try to find their way (can’t keep them confined 24 hours, can we?). When I was reading your piece, I was imagining what I would do if I were Bhhole or Chhote. I would do exactly what they did – make a hole in the wall and run away. So nothing wrong with what they did, IMO.

What’s important is that they seem to (fingers crossed!) now know their way out of your place – and very importantly, also know their way back!!! Of course, you shouldn’t take this for granted. So maybe it’s an idea that one weekend or so, you let them go their route – but follow behind very closely to see exactly where they go, what they do (maybe mix with other dogs), what they eat etc. They shouldn’t know (they may come back to you). If you observe a pattern, then you know what happens in your absence.

That way, if someday either of them isn’t back as expected, you at least know their routine. I think (I may be totally wrong!), dogs have a routine.

I’ve already talked a lot as if I’m a dog expert 🙂 (maybe the influence of so many “experts” I see pontificating on various TV channels :-)), so I better shut up now.

Will leave the ground for real experts like Greta to give you proper guidance.

Thanks a LOT for this post, Atul. This is an absolute GEM. I wish there was some way to tag GEM posts as a quick reference.

And hey, maybe not a bad idea to share some pics of the dogs? Especially interested in seeing how the new family member Kabra Singh looks. 🙂

Thanks for your detailed comments. “Escapades”- indeed that is literally what the dogs have been up to.
Authors, in their preface to their books thank their family members for being patient with them. I must say that the dogs are quite patient and understanding while I spend time on the blog and so I must thank them for not demanding too much of my time. They were used to “laad dulaar” while they were staying with my wife and daughter and they miss that, but they understand it that I can not be as demonstrative about my “laad dulaar” for them.

We infact have found out the routine of the dogs when they go out. They like to spend time with the two dogs of a neighbouring house. This is a discovery made by me and later confirmed by my wife and daughter too, and later I got it cross checked by the person who lives in that house. So I almost certainly know where to find them if they are out of the compound.

Let me see how to share the photos of the dogs. Personally I quite like the photo that shows Bhhole standing with a chewbone in his mouth. I have a few more photos with me, including one that shows Kabra Singh applying the dog fight technique on Chhote who allows himself to be “defeated” by his young pupil.

Atul ji,
Thanks for a highly engrossing and readable account of the escapades and other activities of Bhole,Chhotey and new entrant Kabra Singh-a very special name indeed-.
You have a special knack to describe their special incidents because you love them and I love reading these.

Thanks for the appreciation. The name Kabra Singh, as well as the other names of pets were thought out by my wife, who has a knack for coming up with some creative names for pets and humans alike.

‘Do Bailon Ki Katha,(1927) by Munshi Premchand

‘Do Kuthon Ki Katha (2013) by Atul

Moral of the story : Everybody loves freedom :).

Once my wife read out the tale of “Do bailon ki katha” to my daughter. Both of them in fact found the escapades of Bhhole and Chhote very similar to the tale of Heera and Moti in Munshi Premchand’s story.

Atul you should teach your dogs to use internet. Then they will forget all about running here and there. They will post songs for you. Your daily postings will go up to 20-30 per day. 🙂

Ha ha, Ava. Brilliant suggestion!!! Bhhole will do the write-up, Chhote will do the lyrics, Kabra Singh will get the video and the other taggable details). See, teamwork! 🙂

Raja *like*

I have seen Chhote take the driver’s seat in the car, while nuppy would be found at the pedals. Bhole would only be the passenger, so their roles in the blog may well be similar. 🙂 Perhaps Kabra Singh will have to substitute for nuppy.

nuppy, our late cat was internet savvy, who loved to sit on the keyboard of laptop and he also loved to sit on my lap while I typed away on the keyboard. He taught the dogs many things, but he forgot to teach them computers. 🙂

Atul ji – ‘ aapke haath (hamne dekhe to nahin) , magar inhe ‘khaali’ mat rakhiyega, ye likhte hue hi – ‘read as ‘on keyboard’- achhe lagte hai. Bas likhte rahiyega, aur likhte rahiyega aur ….. likhte rahiyega !!!

Absolutely brilliant!
Loved reading every word of this post.
And was very happy with the understanding you have come to with the dogs.
And Welcome KabraSingh!!

I am sure that the dogs will have difficulty adjusting to the life styles of most other pet dogs who are only allowed to go on a walk while tied up.. 🙂

Thanks for the photos Atul!
You have so much greenery around your house! Lucky you! And the dogs seem to like it as well!

Kabra Singh nahi, Kabra Singh Ji bolo!

PICTURES PLEASE. Especially of Kabra Singh whom we have not yet seen! Do you keep collars on the dogs with tags with your phone # and their names on? Or do people not do that in India? It sounds like they are quite happy, and if they meet an untimely end at least you will know they made the most of their time on earth 🙂

I have included pictures of Kabra Singh with Bhole and Chhote in the write up now.
Forget dogs, even humans are not sure of coming back home unscathed these days. so I am quite relived every time the dogs come back safe.
Yes, I too reconcile myself by believing that the dogs have lived quite fulfilling lives so far.

That last photograph made me guffaw, along with your commentary 😀 Thanks, they are gorgeous and they look very happy as I suspected! Love them.

Kabra Singh was quite famished and undernourished when he was brought in. Now regular nourishment has enabled him to fill out a bit. The fact that he has been accepted by the others as a family member is also doing him a world of good. from psychological point of view.

I was quite amazed myself when I managed to get this photograph of Chhote and Kabra Singh in the same pose. I took a few more photographs and there too Kabra Singh apes Chhote’s pose quite nicely.

You must be very proud of Kabra Sing ji 🙂 Thanks for engrossing write up. Due to time difference between East and West, I check the new postings of the songs in early morning. Today, while reading your lovely, engrossing post, I just forgot to check my watch (school time) and my son was just shocked as this never happens that he would remind me of getting late to drop him to his school. Thanks and hope to see more of “Kabira speaking…….” (remember, Hera Pheri-00 dialogue) I mean Kabra Singh speaking… (more stories of the new member) 🙂

All animals are like human. We shall committing mistakes if we treat them as animals. To extend the theory all kids are adult. Do not treat kids as kids.

Lovely write-up Atulji. They have adjusted to your lifestyle and you to theirs. Mutual understanding and love and all that. Isnt that very nice?
