  1. amazing. its wonderful to see and inspiring to think of how the media can take up social issues and turn them into mass awareness programs.i have been thinking of writing on the tiger conservation project of India for quite a few days now in my blog, and today i chanced upon your blog which takes up the same issue. inspiring, as i said, to see how people are blogging, texting, taking up discussions on the matters which really matter. though such intellectual expressions won't help the tigers much, but awareness in general will definitely play a big and crucial role to reduce the natality rates of tigers in India. inspiring, really, to see that the internet serves more than the prospect of satisfying the sexually deprived. thumbs up to the ongoing campaigns, to you in particular and to everyone in general who is taking up the issue. and in advance, a big thumbs up to the internet. it being nominated as a potential contender in the race for the Nobel peace prize is well justified.
