Tiger Tourism Continues
Just read a newspaper report that the ban on Tiger Tourism in core areas of the tiger reserves has been lifted. Good news indeed. How else would the Save Tigers enthusiasts see for themselves if tigers are getting saved or not?

Tiger, tiger, burning bright!
Dreadful is your present plight!
You know, in India, people revere millions of gods. Do you realize the ancient people’s wisdom in creating so many gods? Indian gods are symbolic of different forms of life! By associating every known form of life to a god, the clever sages ensured that all living beings lived harmoniously and the ecosystem was healthy.
The Chinese year of the tiger has just started. China is alleged to be the largest consumer of tiger parts or things created after killing a tiger! Sic! Let’s hope that this “year of the tiger”, will instill some reverence for the tiger in the misled tiger parts consumers and instead of clamoring for tiger parts, they will save tigers instead; Or out of reverence, at least think to save tigers.
On a continuing note, we also hope that the tiger farms will be stopped. These farms just keep on increasing the Chinese appetite for tiger parts.
Just installed a nice tiger theme for my Firefox browser. Here’s the link for Tiger Eyes theme for Firefox. This will keep you reminding of a promise – to Save Tigers.
