In my Next Birth, I want to be born as . . .

Little brown bat with visible symptoms typical of WNS (8509677349)

A Little Brown Bat!

Actually, I wanted to be born as aΒ Buffalo in my next birth cos I love it’s attitude towards life (lazy, uncaring, et. all) but once I got familiar with the little brown bat, I immediately changed my mind.

The little brown bat can sleep for 19.9 hours a day, and hibernate for 6+ months in a year. (Source: Wiki)

Did you read that? Go back and read the previous line carefully once again.


So, what creature would you want to be born as, in your next life (if there is one)? Let me know in the comments πŸ™‚

      Lucky you. I read somewhere that all our life events just repeat all over again, and it’s an unending cycle. So there is hope! πŸ™‚

    Birds and animals are in the lower order of evolution.Why this strange fascination to be born as one of such?But your question set me thinking and I found every animal has some demerit in it and if we were born like it,we may wish to be like another!!

      Birds and animals maybe in the lower order of evolution, but they are relatively carefree, and can be as lazy as possible. That’s why the fascination πŸ™‚

    Rajesh, let me enlighten you on one thing. Do you know a place inhibited by a bat smells awful and a bat itself is considered dangerous because it is said to live on blood?

    Given a chance i would love to be born to the same parents and be the youngest kid in the family (like right now πŸ˜› )and enjoy being lazy sometimes and work and pursue my passions.
    Though i love animals and birds, i don’t prefer that , as only a human can emote and talk.
    I want everything to be the same if given a chance.

      I think I am alone in not wanting to be born as human being in my next life!! Maybe I am getting exposed too much on topics like pollution, global warming, poaching, ill effects of chemicals & pesticides, wars, nuclear arsenals, over-consumption, e-waste, etc. I should also expose myself to the good side of humanity! πŸ™‚

      That place maybe smelling awful for humans so that we don’t disturb bats (much). If it was horrible for bats, they’ll fly away to somewhere else!

    I have no idea, even though I don’t believe in rebirth or next birth! Your choice is interesting to be inspiring anyone. But for me I always prefer for active life
