PM in his MannKiBaat mentioned about ‘collar tigress’ who recently passed away
PM said “My dear countrymen, love for nature and compassion for every living being, this is our culture as well as innate nature.
A glimpse of these Sanskaras of ours was seen recently when a tigress left the world in Pench Tiger Reserve of Madhya Pradesh.The death of this tigress made people so emotional as if someone of their own had left the world.
People performed her last rites, bid her farewell with full respect and affection.
You must have also seen these pictures on social media. This love of Indians for nature and living beings was greatly appreciated the world over.
The collared tigress gave birth to 29 cubs in her lifetime and raised 25 of them to maturity. We also celebrated this life of T-15 and when she left the world, we also gave her a heartfelt farewell. This is the specialty of the people of India.”
