Mahesh Chandra Sharma, the Rajasthan High Court judge, who had earlier said that he wanted to see the cow declared as India’s national animal and had directed the state government to coordinate with the BJP-led Centre to make that happen, now had a fascinating explanation behind why peacock is the national bird.

Elucidating about the mating process of the birds, he told reporters, “Jo mor hai, yeh aajeevan bhramachari hai. Kabhi bhi morni ke saath sex nahi karta hai. Iske jo aasu aate hai, morni usse chubhkar garbhavati hoti hai, mor ya morni ko janm deti hai (The peacock is a lifelong celibate. It does not have sex with the peahen. The peahen gets impregnated with the tears of the peacock and then gives birth to a peacock or a peahen.) Sharma’s remark has since then stirred up a storm on social media, especially Twitter.

“‘The peahen gets pregnant drinking the tears of the peacock.’ This makes me weep. I hope I don’t get pregnant, “Just the tears! Never knew Peacock had such a messed up life. No doubt some of us are frustrated, when so is our National Bird!”, etc. are some of the reactions the lawyer’s explanation has generated on Twitter.

Sharma, who was reportedly retiring made these statements as he explained why the cow should be declared the ‘national animal’. “Is this even a criteria?” asked another Twitter user, clearly perplexed by Sharma’s understanding (or lack of).

    Primitive mindset with an eye for post retirement sinecures.

    Nice appropriate headline. The judge could have avoided his controversial observations on pea s.

    Really it is ridiculous & surprising to know this story from a judge with prevai knowledge & belief of the society. Because we are in a society where maintaining the double standard is considered the most civil way of life. whatever a crook you are internally it does not matter but externally you should maintain the politeness so that people will be happy. We are in a society happy with such hypocrisy but not happy with reality of a person. Our fee s is different & our doing is different & we are habituated with this. We will never encourage a man to come up with his real thought. In that way we should support the judge. After all he is tel it is the voice of his soul. After all it serves some sort of entertainment with present understanding, but I think it may be good for long run. I think it is an initiative step towards transparency in coming time.
