"The choice is ours to make: Will we stand by silent, and watch the slaughter? Watch the forests fall? Watch, as wild creatures fall off the map of India? Do we want an India that is silenced of the roar of the tiger? Do we want to live in a country where forests are barren, its land infertile? Or will we stand up and fight? So that we do not tell our children, ‘Once were tigers....." If not, help us, help them.

We destroy their habitats, slaughter and butcher them for ‘sport’ and commerce, torture them for entertainment and science and yet we call them beasts? And us, humane? The shows are merely a reflection on us.
