Tiger v/s Mans… the winner is…..

I was reading a article DilipNaidu, on Tigers , Lovely pictures on the blog ..  It reminded me of this article I had written some time ago , so thought of re posting it .. My views on the state of Tiger in the wild ..

Welcome to this WORLD..

Round 15 … In the orange corner is the Tiger weighing on average 540pounds …

In the Multicolour Corner.. MAN.. weighing on average 80KG’s

DING DING…

Dhishum–dhishum.. Sound of Bullet… Tree Falling… Sound of someone removing skin of a animal…

* continues for 3 minutes ***

Silence………… AND

.. The winner is *drum rolllsss Tain tain Taannnn … **

MAN… We Winnnnnnnnnnnnnn Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

In the past few days i have been reading a lot of blogs on the condition of Tigers in our world.. The World of MANKIND .. the world where the biggest threat to the existence of any other living kind/Species is MAN.

So finish MANKIND… rest all will survive.. but this is not a practical thing to do, cause I for one don’t want to die just yet…

Another problem is the ways of the Tiger itself, it does not induce confidence that it will survive..

I read a lot of suggestions made by people what can be done, what should be done.. some have come out with


1) Blog about it use our respective pages on social networking websites
2) Campaign against poaching and condemn the past acts of celebrities
3) Send SMS’es and E-mails
4) Avoid using paper as much as possible
5) Visit tiger sanctuaries and national parks
6) Donate and/or volunteer – One can donate funds to World Wildlife Fund and at the same time volunteer to work towards conserving tiger by getting in touch with an NGO.

and various other ways .. blaming the Govt is also one of those.. I blame them too

Some have blamed CHINA too

But my Friends THE DAMAGE IS ALREADY DONE.. The time is to WALK THE TALK.. As one of the blogs has put it so very correctly. We need to get together but we cant do it without the Govt, Because lets see the biggest risk to a Tiger at this moment is poaching, who is the poacher MAN.. he is doing it for MONEY.. because he is POOR.. If one gets caught there are 10 more to take his place..

What will we do getting together go to the jungle to stop these Men.. I can bet you anything We cant do it .. to survive in the jungle ourself will become a headache, leave alone saving the tiger, Hence my point of that the LAW needs to be made stringent.

I think if laws are stringent maybe things will improve.. an eye for an eye.. cause when a tiger kills a man.. it is maneater.. so if a man kills a tiger he is a TIGEREATER.. and deserves the same treatment..

Caught.. put in Cage and Then SHOT

If the Govt want, Truly wants then it can be done.. as we have seen in a lot of cases if something needs done then IT can be done. Rahul Gandhi goes for Mumbai darshan without a Hiccup.. WHY .. because the Govt left no Stone unturned to make it happen.

Our DEAR DARLING NETA’s are too busy feeding the Animal inside them in their stomach.. Thats what the problem is..

Sending SMS, Emails , Blogs etc etc are not going to make ONE BIT Of difference.. Most of you will read this article and forget it, when you move on to a different page.

OR

The only way Tiger can survive is with the Extinction of MANKIND.. Get rid of MANKIND , Not just Tiger but every other species will survive

PS:- Sorry if the language in the post seems to be a bit harsh ..

PPs. :-Thank you all For the lovely words all of you have said about me in the previous post, I am touched. sorry have not been able to reply to them WILL DO, I am on a course so not getting much time .

  1. In such cases, there is an indirect beneficiary who is a more powerful factor. The poacher gets a small amount of money, the skin is sold by agents to some manufacturers, they sell it to customers who want ‘real tiger’ skinned apparel/decorative materials. They might pay a huge money for it. THAT is what encouraging poaching and killing.

    If these people don’t buy stuff made of animal products, there would be no money for poachers and they might stop it. Instead of going after the poachers, law-enforcement agencies should go after reckless ‘fashion designers’ and ‘customers’ who use tiger skins, elephant tusks, etc. I really wonder what kind of people these are…

    Great post Bikram. Yes we cannot wish away this poaching by lamenting about from a armchairs. I like the sting in your article – things don’t happen unless we shake it up 🙂 Yes villagers do harm tigers but it is more for self protection when a tiger has become a man eater but it is the ruthless poachers who are part of international chain who do it for big bucks.

    I enjoyed reading your article.

  5. I don’t think poaching has got anything to do with poverty. It is more to do with corruption. Poachers might be in cahoots with the officials or the machinery to deal with poachers might be lacking, though the first instance is more like it. In a country where human life is of very little value, you think anyone bothers about animals. Most of the tigers that are there are in captivity. I recently went to Corbett and apparently it has been ages since anyone has sighted a tiger. You can see some if you come to Bannerghatta National Park including a white tiger. Kids love to go on that safari.

    • It is also the thrill of the kill I think.. and corruption is so big , the people who are PAID to stop this from happening are not doing their job simple, If everyone does 10% of their JOB with all their heart things will change immediately .

  12. It’s scary to think that in another (possible) 20 years, a tiger (or similar animals) may not exist. For the sake of few individuals who regard dead parts of this animal more valuable, the entire world will suffer, a massive chunk of the chain will be taken away – with massive negative impact.

  13. Man is the wicked animal. If the top level dress designers and the user of animal skin products stop buying and using them, poachers will not have work at all. These top level people are educated people. They are just after huge amount of money. Who is there to stop them?

    Nicely written points, Bikram.

    Bikram, personally I do not really subscribe to what these poachers are doing, but what Jas said does make sense. In a country where there is no value for life – be it human, animal or any thing, then what can we expect?
    I mean, people still torture their daughters in law here… infant rapes happen and criminals still do go scot free… millions will be spent to encourage the IT giants but none on our farmers as u highlighted in one of ur recent posts – what can we expect in such a case – how will a tiger’s life be of any inkling of importance to the poacher whose hungry stomach is not being taken care of by the government????
    Yes, ban these products, severely punish people who collect animal skins for shauk, and ban leather altogether – fine people who are caught using leather – only then some change can be expected even remotely…

    Humans are affecting environment badly. We pollute earth, water and sky. We kill animals just for fun. We kill wild life by cutting jungles. We kill fishes by spilling oil in the sea. There are so many animals, birds and trees on the verge of extinction or already extinct, because of human arrogance or greed.
    It is such a hopeless scenario, especially in our country. And as Rachna said, when the human life has no value, then who will worry about animals?!

  33. I agree with you. Just talking about it, or organizing awareness campaigns and ask celebrities to talk about it over a cup of coffee will not just solve the problem. We need to identify why and how it is happening and we need to tackle the problem head on. As someone above mentioned, THe greed in mankind has to be kept in check, coz he is the most dangerous of the species!

    Hello again.
    Just stopping by to say thank you for linking up to Blog Hop Saturday!

    When the world was first created, man and beast used to walk the earth together as friends. Man did not fear that he would be the animal’s next meal and the beast did not have to worry about poaching…such a thing did not exist then because earth was a paradise. It is only since sin entered earth’s midst through the ages that all these things are happening. It will only get worse before it can get better. There will come a time, however, when the earth will be cleansed of all wrongdoings, paradise will be restored, pain and sickness will be abolished, there will be enough food for everyone, death will be no more and man and beast will once again walk the earth like companions.
    Another thought-provoking post my friend, with lots of differing opinions. Thanks for sharing.
    Thanks also for all your support throughout the year.
