Year of the tiger 2010

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.
