- First of all i would like to clarify that this blog has nothing to to do with Mango Dolly.So, people looking for pictures of South Indian porn stars will be highly dissapointed.I could say that this blog aims at highlighting the hypocrisy in today's society.But,fuck it.The truth is since internet is cheap and they don't sue for writing crap,i have started this blog to bitch about politicians,celebs,women,famous people, not so famous people,life,people,ex-crushes ,etc.In short everybody and everything.So, start reading.

First of all, sorry for disturbing you for you might be too busy saving your own ass.Poachers population is increasing by the day .Blame it on the Govt,for this mass unemployment is driving men to frenzy.Holding a gun & shooting down tigers seems to serve two purposes.It brings down their frustration & also provides employment.Oh! by the way the reason for writing this letter is that i saw a campaign by a cellular company for your conservation some time back & i & other morons like me suddenly became aware of your presence.(Well bro, people here have enough problems of their own like petrol prices being raised,sucking jobs with no raises since, say like a decade,France getting outta the world cup early & their money being wasted on worthless flop films week after week.
They surely don't have time to worry about a four legged striped animal running around crying for survival)But suddenly you seem to be everywhere,on newspapers,t.v. channels,posters,billboards & where not.All of a sudden T V channels started showing blemishes in govt policies,incresed poaching,uncontrolled tourism & illegal establishments within the sanctuaries that were probable reasons of your dwindling number.It all started so suddenly that it came as a shock to me. Where were these guys some years back?The ad said just 1411 left.But why did they wait till 1411?However after this inital shock boredom crept in.
The so called voices of concern that are crying out so loud for your protection that it is increasing the levels of sound pollution,were on mute mode sometime back.Why , because back then there was no glamour associated to your cause.When suddenly a company puts your face on the billboards on every nook & corner of the country,everyone else joins in.Dude, congrats because today you are the new blank check which everyone wants to cash in.The brand tiger is generating quite a'oh's & 'omg's today.But are these efforts whether selfish or not going to help you. OK,OK stop laughing. It wasn't that good a joke.After all we humans cannot help our own cause ,how can we help yours.Do not pin your hopes on us because we are the ones who put you there in the first place.In a world where man's life has become a cheap affair upholding your cause can be a messy one(Do not confuse with Lionel Messi for Christ's sake)
We humans are a dangerous breed.hypocrisy is in our blood.For all these campaigning,documentaries,policies atre made to create a feel good factor,to say that world is still worth living at.To create a feeling of hope that something is being done somewhere.But alas!
On one hand we put a nice little act showing that we we will do anything for your conservation,on the other hand we create an environment with enough tools to screw you.Mindless industrialization,deforestation in the name of urban development,pollution & our ever increasing materialistic hunger are not exactly acts of conservation.We sign protocols,shout over roof tops regarding our pledge for wildlife conservation ,write lengthy documents & the next day we dump those protocols,treaties whatever in the dustbin.
I am sorry Mr tiger. We can't help you,because we are too busy killing each other.A time will come when we ourselves would be endangered & there would be no one campaigning for our survival.
Don't believe in our efforts for they are not a penny worth.Come next year when the ad remains the same with a different number denoting your population probably 701 hopefully keeping your & our optimism high.And when you get extinct the company will come up with a new endangered animal.Thankfully ,the number of animals awaiting extinction are many.So,there is no headache for the company.The government never had a headache anyways.Don't expect much from the people.People who forget about Babri,Bhopal,26/11 won't actually have a tough time forgetting you.
We are not fighting for you.You have to fight your own battle.Look closely between the lines.You are not battling for survival.You are battling for survival from us.
Now run, because we are right behind you.

Our truest life is when we are in our dreams awake.
-Henry David Thoreaua
Life for me is a journey where destination holds less value than the path itself.Life is harmony, life is music.It is the most romantic novel ever written,the greatest philosophy ever bestowed upon.Life is spirituality and reflection of god on earth.Six billion people opening their eyes to witness yet another sunrise day after day is the biggest miracle on earth left unnoticed.Life is a palate containing an ocean of emotions,rains of tears,thunderstorm of happiness,thorns of failures and petals of success. Amidst countless heartbreaks, numerous failures and never ending challenges we miss the inherent essence of life.We never quite appreciate the fact that we are lucky enough to walk the road and accept whatever it gives.Because life teaches us something that's embedded deep within us,in our heartbeats,in our breaths that the true meaning of life is to move on. Walk through the open fields,embrace the blue sky,feel the sun gracing the world with its aura and you have the answer to the most difficult question blossoming in front of your eyes.The question as to what life is.Dont waste your time counting the number of joys you had;instead count the number of moments you realized that you were alive. Life is the world's greatest drama, you being in the center stage.Do not worry about the script,if you have played your part well then you are a hero,dude.You don't need a million claps to prove your worthiness.Sometimes a pat from your inner conscience does a lot more than millions of shallow worthless praises. Look closely the nectar is dripping.The question is do you have the courage to taste it? A great man once said what lies behind you and what lies in front of you is nothing as compared to what lies within you.So,go and grab your cup of life & cherish the spirit of life . Go live your life and live it to the fullest for you might not get a second chance at it.Enjoy the joy of life for a beer company aptly says
cheers to life!!!
