I Am The Tiger: A Play On Tiger Conservation By Shivani Wazir Pasrich
Tiger numbers have fallen steadily each year since 1990. India now has fewer than 1,800 tigers alive in the wild.
India is losing the tiger, and with it, the natural abundance the nation needs to survive. Many experts agree that the tiger can still be saved. In fact, many believe that within ten years, tiger numbers in India could climb as high as 10,000. The question is this: why not save the tiger, if to do so means to save ourselves?
In 2011, Delhi-based theatre artiste, Shivani Wazir Pasrich, an Odissi dancer and well-known TV presenter, joined the movement to save the tiger. And, I am the Tiger was born.

About the event:
In order to shed light on the plight of our national animal, Inner Courtyard brings Shivani Wazir Pasrich to Mumbai to share her interactive and enlightening play on tiger conservation – I Am The Tiger.
The play has been performed in the jungles of Kanha and Ranthambore, at the UN Convention on bio-diversity and at London’s Women of the World Festival. Every performance has elicited a fabulous response and created more awareness on the need to save the tiger. To explore the theme in greater depth, the performance will be followed by a panel discussion on the topic ‘Will all this drama really save the tiger?’ moderated by eminent persons from the wildlife and conservation sector.
There are no charges for the passes, but prior registration is must for this event. Contact Mallika Narvekar (9870408075/
