NDTV-Aircel Save Our Tigers campaign 2015 held a "Join the Roar Contest." Meet the winners of the contest.
Winner Name: Surya Prakash
Surya Prakash's Writes: We should make all efforts to save tigers, since protecting them benefits hundreds of other species, including other endangered creatures that share tiger habitat and form biodiversity, a keystone to keeping our planet healthy.
Winner Name: Zahir Abbas from Delhi
Zahir Abbas Writes: "Tiger are the Symbol of ecological balance. Saving Tiger means saving the entire ecology. The Boss of the forest maintains the gravity and give an identity to a forest and also lead us to save other habitats. My first and only tiger spotting was in Ranthambore tiger reserve in this year."
Winner Name: Sanjay Pratap from Noida
Sanjay Pratap Writes: "Meet this 3-year-old male cub. I managed to see this little master in Bandhavgarh Tiger reserve."
Winner Name: Sriram K S from Bengaluru
Sriram's Tiger Story: "It was the winter of 2012 and we were on a trip to Tadoba. This was by far one of our most successful trip in terms of tiger sighting. We met Maya or P2 at Tadoba. I believe the one way of saving tigers is to promote tourism in tiger reserves and ensure that the tourist do not disturb the tiger habitat. Tiger conservation is more important because without this the balance of food chain will be affected to a huge extent. We saw the same tiger trying to hunt in 2013 too."
Winner Name: Abhiroop Ghosh Dastidar from Bengaluru
Abhiroop Ghosh's Tiger Story: Ghosh has tagged this picture as 'Cross the line' - "It is beyond any human understanding the stress the animals face when they are compelled to cross Highways and human frequented areas. We encountered this male tiger right at the edge of Mysore-Mananthavadi highway standing bewildered at the fast moving private buses. It did eventually cross the road with cautious steps and nervous footings. While the country boasts of rise in Tiger efforts we can come to conclusion that a small war has been won. However fights for Big Battles such as these are still on and the silver lining is not too far."
