(An Appeal from Kanha -written by Suhas Kumar)
Let the tiger be the master of the jungle
Not a slave of man
There are lot many creatures here
Plants, birds and beasts, frogs and reptiles
Beautiful insects and butterflies
They make the jungle live
And that is why, it is here that the tigers thrive.
In vistas heavenly and sublime
To immerse yourselves in the MAGIC that Kanha has to offer
You will be a different man, woman and child
When you go back home with the memories of this
NATURE’S MAGNIFICENT COFFER
Your desire to see a wild tiger Is very strong
But perhaps you don’t know
Keeping tigers at bay for you is wrong
When you see a tiger from elephant back
Surrounded by gawking tourists and numerous Elephants, jeeps and cars
You may get Thrilled once.
But when you would return
You would feel very sad for the master who is now a slave
Of man’s caprice and greed.
Let the TIGER’S freedom prevail
He will show up near you when would feel
The tiger is a beast of free will
Why force him to behave otherwise to serve man’s thrill
Kanha is not a zoo where tigers walk behind bar but a land
UNTAMED AND WILD
And here tigers roam wide and far
Let it be that grand and engross yourself in this fascinating LAND.
