"Tiger Tiger burning bright. In the forests of the night, What immortal hand or eye. Could frame thy fearful symmetry?" -William Blake
After being criticised about writing blogs that are waaay too long...waaay too wordy(see Dumb: http://between-classes.blogspot.com/2010/02/dumb.html) , and being asked to write about myself, and tigers... yes, in that order... I've decided to get on with it. For starters, I'm keeping the blog long and wordy, see Dumb for further details/abuse. And I am going to write about tigers, and myself, in that order...
Tigers aren't really those man-eating, savage beasts that look for merely the slightest opportunity to go on a rampage killing and eating stuff. No, that would be Godzilla... Now, tigers aren't really the nicest breed of cat there is. No, tom-cat, or lynx for you there. However, just the amount of money that Tigers have generated through revenue from reference in popular culture is unbelievable.I mean, these animals have created a xenophobia. How will you eat yours?
Support the tiger. If only you have ever laughed at Tigger, if you think Sheroo was a hot idea(seriously??). From 20000 to 1411 is a fall rivalling that of the biggest banks and corporate audit companies(Lehman Brothers anyone?). Visit: http://projecttiger.nic.in/
Increase your awareness. And that of others. Spread the word. Tigers are an Indian icon. Don't let them become a legend.
