Tiger ... Grrrr!!!

Grrrr!!!..... Tiger is a Tiger, always. Its not about Tiger Woods, am talking about Tiger in the woods.

I  read in many instances that Tigers succeed in hunting only once out of 10-20 attempts. It means that it has to go through 9-19 substantial failures before it can have its successful prey of hunger. Wisdomism made a thesis on Tigers coping up with failures effectively and found that

1. Tigers neither know the statistics nor the surveys.
2. Tigers never read personality development books like ....
How to get Success/ How to overcome Failure/How to Blah Blah ....
3. A Tiger never comments a fellow tiger with statements like,
Hey, you...... couldn't even catch that small deer?
Look at him, how he is running like a cat!!!
God! disgusting chase!.........
Look that poor chap.....yesterday he was kicked by a buffalo group....LOL!!!
Hey fatty...... whats your count in this month's hunt?
Dude......She has got loads of Attitude as well as hot stripes .....

4. Also, a Tiger never bothers what his fellow Tiger is thinking about him. They don't have identity crisis we guess. May be they are just facing crisis identity(1411?)
5. Besides, they don't have the necessity to prove that they are tigers  in every instance they hunt and every move they make.
Ex : A tiger tries to hunt the weakest deer in the group rather than chasing for a sturdy one because it is not in the race to prove itself. It hunts for itself. 

6. Unlike humans, every Tiger is a king, no slavery.  Tigers are always royal, they never try to be royal.
7. Every Tiger recognizes that his fellow Tiger is also a Tiger .
8. Tigers need not update their hunting stats on Junglitter(Jungle twitter).
9. Whether a Tiger hunts a hare or a deer, it still remains a tiger. Success never changes its image nor failure lessens its confidence levels.
10. The main reason, we guess, is lack of capitalistic and corporate tendencies in tiger which makes it more socialistic(Junglistic) and communistic(Instinctive). I repeat, COMMUNISTIC!!!
11. As per reports of Wisdomism, we came across the fact that Tigers don't have racial problems though humans have divided them into various categories and subspecies(Siberian vs Royal Bengal)......
12. As, we are facing the demand with many new states, how about having TigerPradesh or Tigersthan or Tigerkhand
13. We heard that Tigers are planning a mass movement to gain a copyright of their identities and uniqueness as they do feel disgusting when ever   LTTE and Bal Thackarey are cartooned like them.
14. The only apt and convincing truth we found is that Tigers are least bothered what humans think about them.


How about having my book with title 'Facing Failure, Tigerly' .............. GRrrrrr!!!

--------()-------

Facts :
1.The pattern of stripes is unique to each animal, and thus could potentially be used to identify individuals, much in the same way that fingerprints are used to identify people.
2. There are nine recent subspecies of tiger, three of which are extinct.
3. In contrast to male lions, male tigers will allow the females and cubs to feed on the kill first.
4. Male tigers are generally more intolerant of other males within their territory than females are of other females.
5. Tigers will roar for both aggressive and non-aggressive reasons. Other tiger vocal communications include moans, hisses, growls and chuffs.
6. Tigers will occasionally eat vegetation for dietary fiber, the fruit of the Slow Matching Tree being favored.
7. The mortality rate of tiger cubs is fairly high - approximately half do not survive to be more than two years old
8. When seized by a crocodile, a tiger will strike at the reptile's eyes with its paw.

PS : I thank Roshmi and Geeta for bringing out the much neglected aspects of my writings throught their supportive  feedback and constant encouragement :) :) :)

Roshmi Sinha said...

Wonderful post and I fully agree with every word you wrote :)

Have you noticed how human beings brand each other as 'animal', 'jaanwar', 'kutta' etc... ???

I wonder why. Animals, birds even insects do not behave the way we - Homo Sapiens sapiens - supposedly the most evolved of all species do.

They do not insult, fight, abuse, torture, rape, kill for dowry, set on fire, murder, steal, hoodwink, bribe, destroy, bomb, terrorize, make false promises, grab land, break laws, indulge in corruption, racism, casteism, nepotism, religion/faith, overpopulate, destroy or pollute the ecosystem.

They have their own set of rules and they follow it. One can even find instances of compassion and kindness across species... among animals and birds. A hen caring for puppies, a dog taking care of chickens, even a tiger caring for cats and chickens. Dolphins coming to the rescue of sailors caught in a storm or in turbulent waters. And many more...

I'm sure the worst abuse among them must be 'you are behaving like a human being'. What???

Mahesh Kalaal said...

@ Madhulika...
Thanks a bunch for the boosting feedback and the encouraging response. I hope I will be on the tracks in coming posts as well :) :) :)

Mahesh Kalaal said...

@ Gyanban...
Wow....1411 humans??...quite unique thought and perspective...

As an anthropologist i will be the most happiest person if human race vanishes completely from Earth...
Yes, it would be equally enjoying to write on 1411 humans. Thanks for the que....

Lemmi ponder and dwell from animals perspective on what they may feel about the 1411 humans.... I guess one post is not enough to blame humans, it requires tons of books i guess..

Thanks a lot for the substantial response and intriguing feedback :) :) :)
