Dialogue : A tiger behind bars and a man
Man: Hello, Mr tiger. You are now behind the bars. You are no longer the king of the jungle. You will now listen to me, whatever I dictate. I will appoint a ring master who will train you in many tricks.
Tiger: I am the lord of the jungle from where you trapped me. You have violated the forest laws in trapping me. You have done an immoral act. Open the doors! free me !Let me go the jungle.
Man: you tiger! don't teach me law and ethics. I have captured you after taking so much risk. I am not a fool that I will set you free.
Tiger: You are a rational animal, O man! Think twice if you can set me free.
Man: Shut up ! I am not going to set you free. You will eat flesh of goat ,don't worry.
Tiger: O man! People like you are killing us daily. We are now an endangered specie. We are getting less in number day by day. Tiger experts say that we are only about 3000.
Man: so what! Nothing will happen if tigers do not live. Other animals will survive in peace. They live a life of panic because of you tigers.
Tiger: This is not our fault. Nature has created us .Nature has made the food chain. If we don't hunt and kill other animals there will be an ecological imbalance. man should not kill us as we can live without man but man cannot live without us,the animals.
A dialogue between a man in a cage and a tiger.
Man : Have mercy on me ,O tiger! You have caged me for no fault of mine. I am starving from yesterday. You have not given me any food.
Tiger: What ! have 'nt I given you food ? What are all these in the bowl ?
Man: O my lord,Tiger! Can I eat raw food? The food you have given is not cooked,how can I eat this food?
Tiger: Eat what you have got.
Man: O Tiger! I want to meet my wife and children. They are at home. I do not know how they are. Please release me and let me go! For the sake of my children please let me go.
Tiger: What exactly do you want? Tell me. You have been caged not for nothing. I will carry you to jungle where you will perform in a circus in front of the animals. You will perform so many feats and the animals will clap and applaud your performance. Ha ha ha...
Man: I understand o tiger that you are taking revenge for the ill treatment we give to the tigers.
Tiger: I have put you in a cage to teach you a lesson. I hope you can now empathize with our condition when we are put in a cage. I will let you go if you pledge to protect the tigers and other animals. I will free you if you encourage people not to buy any product made of animal parts. I will let you go you if you can educate people not to hunt us.
Man: I agree to your conditions. Please free me. You are wise, O Tiger. You have not eaten me.
Tiger: I let you free. When you go back to your society chant this slogan:
Save Tigers, the king of the Jungle.
Chapter 3(C) - Save the Tiger 69
Project tiger is a wildlife conservation project initiated in India in 1972 to protect the Bengal Tigers. It was launched on April 1, 1973 and has become one of the most successful wild life conservation ventures. Project tiger aims at Tiger conservation in specially constituted Tiger reserves representative of various bio geographical regions through out India. It strives to maintain a viable conservation reliant on tiger population in their natural environment. The main achievements of this project are excellent recovery of the habitat and consequent increase in the tiger population in the reserve areas, from a mere 268 in 7 reserves in 1972 to above one thousand in 28 reserves in 2006.Tigers being at the apex of the food chain can be considered as the indicator of the integrity of the eco system.
