Editor's Note: The following was circulated by Dr. Susan Sharma of the Indian Wildlife Club The talk given by Mr. Kapil Sibal, Union Minister for Human Resource & Development on the 29th of July 2009 at Teen Murti House, was really 'manna' to an Environmentalist's ear.

Unfortunately, the efforts being made to help the tiger fight for survival (his and ours) are but a drop in the ocean. Thus, Delhi Greens, and a series of organisations have come together and have called for a Rally...
