There is a surge in killing.

In fact, poaching is at an all-time high in India. It has been reported that India recorded the highest number of poaching cases in 15 years in the first quarter of 2016, as reported by Mint

Mind you, the figure does not include deaths by natural cause. It is exclusively a figure of those unfortunate tigers that were forcibly killed for their skin, claws and bones.

Meanwhile, 40% of India’s tigers are outside protected areas, as reported by the Hindustan times.

These figures are reported by WPSI

The original purpose of this blog was promoting city cycling and popularizing urban green belt corridors, which it did for it's first one and a half year, since the year of it's launch - 2014. Now-a-days, that is, since the last two years, I haven't been city commuting on my bike, thanks to my city earning the world's most air polluted region title. And thanks to the redesigning of City roads, those are forked under construction since last six months, loosing a green cover of a whooping 9,100+ trees and the rising construction dust hazards. And lastly thanks to El nino of 2015 and El nina of 2016. I don't know if I have missed any other reason. The theme of the blog, hence, changed, into a bit of my own ramblings covering topics, such as - my travel blogging, Social issues in India, Climate change & biodiversity conservation.
