Two blind persons wanted to drink water at the RagiGudda temple, Bangalore. When they were unable to operate the tap, this mother monkey opened the tap for them, allowed them to drink water, drank some water herself and then closed the tap before leaving the scene.

Just now heard this news on CNN-IBN, 2 tigers were poisoned by the villagers in Ranathambore. What does this tell us about our grand campaign to save tiger. I really do not understand the funda of this Aircel promoted save tiger campaign.
This campaign came to lime-light after Aircel promoted it. I believe Aircel did this just for publicity, the strips matched their company logo and I must say they got a lot of publicity out of it. There are Facebook and Orkut groups that publicize the save tiger campaign, I really wonder how becoming a fan or member of such a group, helps save tigers ? Further there is a campaign for blogging on this topic. I might sound cynical, but can someone make me understand how all this can help save tigers ?
Ah ! there is one straight forward answer, this way we are building awareness. This is utter nonsense.
The villagers poisoned 2 tigers in Ranatambore because they felt a danger from the tigers. Oh ! BTW most of these people might not have known about the save tiger campaign, they might not have ever used internet to see the media uproar. These are the people who really needs to be educated, the forest officials should be more alert and informed.
I feel to see good results in any kind of save tiger campaign,we need to provide funding to Government agencies and work with them to carry out a good tiger conservation plan. Further educate concerned parties, villagers staying close to forests and the forest officials.
I truly feel creating a false uproar with media campaigns does not take us anywhere in conserving our flora and founa.
If you ever happen to see (or hear about) geese heading south for the winter – flying along in “V” formation – you might consider what science has discovered about why they fly that way. As each bird flaps its wings, it creates uplift for the bird immediately following. By flying in “V” formation, the whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew by itself. Any goose that falls out of formation suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go it alone and quickly gets back into position to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front.
When the lead goose gets tired, it rotates back in the set and another goose moves up to fly point. And the geese in the back honk to encourage those in front to keep up their speed. Finally, when a goose gets sick or is wounded and falls out of formation, two other geese fall out with that goose and follow it down to lend help and protection. They stay with the fallen teammate until it is able to fly or it dies. Only then do they launch out on their own – or with another formation – to catch back up with their group.

Man !! Can any reptile be considered as a pet ? (highly objectionable eh ?)
Well ! what can i say about #1 its the best. A mandatory requirement to own it, owner shouldn’t appear tasty when they are hungry.
