1,000 Days To Save The Tiger

Posted by: Bittu Sahgal on

I penned these words together with Valmik Thapar, tiger defender, as far back as September 1996. But they could have been written year after year, because very little real action actually emerged in India to protect our wildlife, including the tiger. In the intervening years tiger habitats continued to be sacrificed to dams,


News has come in that the largest village in the core area of Similipal Tiger Reserve, Jenabil, shifted out of the reserve voluntarily on 9th March 2010.

62 families shifted out from Jenabil in Similipal's core area to the 'model village' created for them at Ambdiha, outside the reserve. Keeping with the NTCA's guidelines, every


My friend had once remarked, "You are such a dodo!" It was a spontaneous reaction from his side when I said something foolish...

Have you ever wondered why someone is called 'DODO' when ever the person seems to be dumb, innocently stupid???  No???

 BUT, I did...........

That day I wanted to figure out why a dumb person is usually

I can't explain how irritated and disgusted I feel day in and day out; when I read about tiger skin smugglers being arrested, several tons of tiger-bones being seized, international wildlife trafficking rackets being busted and filthy news of the tiger skin costing a lakh of rupees and just one kilogram of tiger bones costing

What is it in our rootedness that virtually forces us to stay fixed to what has been ‘home' long after the qualities that define home - comfort, safety, security - have vanished?

Remembering Sohrabji

May 2010 will mark the 10th death anniversary of an industrialist and  visionary I loved. Most other industrialists thought he was merely feeding his passion when he spoke of the need to protect forests, tigers and such like. Today, of course, almost everyone of them is speaking the language that Sohrabji spoke five decades

Parliament’s Wild Heart: I wrote the piece reproduced below just over 8 years ago, when, for one brief shining moment, it seemed like politics and conservation might just make peace.
