This NGO’s works as a life line support to balance every single aspect that affects nature with their helping hands and support as and when required..”
Lead by a highly energetic personality Mr. Bittu Sahgal, Whome i personally met and found that he eats, drinks, smells and sleeps with Mother Nature. The core of his experience says if human needs to survive, he needs to be blessed with abundance of nature and for same need to give their efforts all prior. In association with Aircel, the ‘Save Our Tiger’ mission is to save our black strapped kings from pouncing and let them grow alone. They are the core of human surveillance if one understands, Along with Bittuji their is a team working and putting all their efforts to create awareness about saving tigers, saving earth and balancing with nature. Few of the leaders in that group is Ph.D Mr. Anish Andheria (President of WCT), Raj Krishnani (Head Operations), Diya Mirza (We all know her), Poonam and more others.
The Core message is “If Their are Tigers in Jungle (just like our Borivali National Park), The Indications are that Nature is working with a Balanced Act. The Cycle of Life Dependencies on each other still exist, And ‘Human Can Survive Around That Place’ and in this case our Mumbai.” But their is a difference between those Wild TIGERS and We Humans, We Say Lets Stay Together and Have Fun, While Tigers says “LIVE ME ALONE” and that’s the new mission of Sanctuary Asia.
We are blessed to have all facilities around in city, But as usual and generally we hear ‘WE DONT HAVE TIME TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT TIGERS’, and that’s fine but can you just do 1 single things which hardly takes a minute of your time ? SHARE & CREATE Awareness. We do share Jokes and Fun stuff, But this is for our own and beloved life and also for our own Children and future.
I AM DOING IT RIGHT HERE, CAN YOU ? Thanks and the Share This Post. Button for same is Right at the end of this article. Hashtags #saveourtigers #Mumbai #Mumbai77
