You can't do anything about it. You know why? Cause you don't know she's left you. You don't know she's been murdered. You didn't hear her cry. You didn't see the trace of blood that followed her body.
She went to find you food.
You don't know anything. So you've been waiting for her to get back,since yesterday. Hungry,scared,tired,sleepy. You've been waiting for her to come,to get you food and for you to sleep under her securing,warm body.
You waited. She never came back.
You're still waiting.
Feeling goose bumps? I hope you are. Cause these tigers feel it,everyday.
I just saw an add. It said,India is left with 1411 tigers.
That's the amount of money people spend to get a wallhanging of a single claw nail,of a tiger. And from the illegal markets blossoming with tiger skin rugs,cheetah skinned dresses,bags,claw decorations,etc etc, the population of a breathing creature, has crawled down to a figure of 1141.
Our National animal. Our icon of pride. Of strength- Of life, is dying. Slowly,painfully.
Do something. You guys. Please. I'm feeling sick inside.. I feel like a murder belonging to the human race. How can we do this to another breathing life,like us? How can we be deaf to the bullet and the piercing cry? How can we be so blind to the teary eyes of those cubs? How can we be ignorant towards the heart beat,the heart pumping blood through veins, just like our heart does?
How can we not see our World dying? Or rather, how can we choose not to???
We're dying guys, soon enough. We're killing our family,the tigers are our ancestors,we borrowed the trees,the land,the sky,from them. And All those animals out there in the wild..or rather,in the captive of death.
SPREAD AWARENESS, I'm pleading. Call,text,blog,protests,websites,radio,television,pagers.
There's no point being proud of our communication and technology if they don't help us live--save our lives and families.
Save the Tiger.
