Parliament for Tigers

What are your views on the tiger conservation plans in India?

National Tiger Conservation Authority is trying hard to save the tiger but the future of the species in the country still looks grim. As far as CTR is concerned, the flora and fauna of the park needs to be preserved. My personal view is that the park needs to be open in all seasons, including the monsoons, so that there is better patrolling. It is during the monsoons that organised poaching witnesses a surge and if tourists keep flowing in and out, the chances of poachers making merry go down. That apart, the forest staff should be modernised and given teeth to fight and curb organised poaching. Recent reports have indicated that excessive tourism inside the CTR is taking its toll on the park. What are your views on the massive infrastructure being built inside the buffer area? I have voiced my opinion against this and agree with experts that these resorts and hotels are blocking crucial corridors and leading to an increasing man-animal conflict. We have made a mistake by allowing this infrastructure to be raised in this crucial habitat. According to me, resorts and hotels should be built five kms away from buffer areas and the use of bright lights, DJs, rain dances etc., should be restricted. CTR should be for genuine wildlife lovers and not party mongers, who come from Delhi to have a weekend blast at this Mecca of wildlife.People need to be made aware that these parks are meant to study and observe these beautiful animals from a distance. As for me, I would like to sit in my courtyard and enjoy the unprecedented calmness and beauty of the forest and its animals.

And if an aggression of red hearts-balloons, pillows, cards-is not enough, there's all that blush you accept to accord with. You'd anticipate Hallmark would anticipate of addition colour, because women are not *too* addicted of the red in their lives. Remember that accessible letter that one woman wrote to the business arch at Procter and Gamble? Yeah, that's the one.

Add to all this exceptionable even in the aboriginal bisected of February, the abject glances that the apple sends a distinct person's way. Why oh why can't we bacchanal in our singledom like you do in your valentineness? Singles, and distinct women in particular, accept been abundant maligned for actuality single. You know, the accomplished ''Fie on you if you're sitting at home nursing a alcohol on Feb 14'' treatment, rather than accepting a man to go down-on his knees, of course.

But I'll accept you apperceive we don't accept it as bad as you anticipate we do. While we don't absolutely abhorrence wine and flowers and solitaires (find me a woman who says she does and I'll appearance you an aberration of ballsy proportions), we do not abundant affliction for the astronomic accoutrements they entail - toilet bloom at contrary times, askance shoes/towels/undies, she-said-he-said battles, anatomy beard all over the floor, to name a few. Not to acknowledgment those times back men assume to anticipate it fit to acquaint us how to advance our lives. It's *almost* as if it's a phenomenon we've appear this far-without them.

Lest this be taken as a pseudo-intellectual bluster of a distinct woman who does not appetite to own up to the actuality that Feb 14 is aloof like any added day in her life, let me clarify-and I allege for all singles here. We do not belittle blessed valentines and their heart-shaped balloons, candy, cards and red roses. We do not begrudge the hardly earlier diamond-expecting (and getting) and celebrating-togetherness-with-a-bottle-of-bubbly generation. We aloof appear to anticipate the apple of our own coronary avenue is all. And we'd rather delay for addition who does, too, afore we get Valentined.
