Q1 :  

Who is the Tiger King? Why does he get that name?


Answer :

Jilani Jung Jung Bahadur, the king of Pratibandapuram, is known as the Tiger King. Ten days after his birth, a renowned astrologer prophesised that his "death comes from the Tiger." After he became the king of Pratibandapuram and got to know of the prediction about his death, he went on a tiger killing spree. He killed about seventy tigers within ten years. He was so caught up with reaching his target of killing one hundred tigers, to disprove the prophecy, that all other matters took a back-seat. This was how he got to be known as the Tiger King.

Q2 :  

What is the general attitude of human beings towards wild animals?


Answer :

Generally, people fear the wild animals because of their ferociousness and tendency to harm humans. But some people exploit them by caging or hunting them for the sadistic pleasure they derive from their 'feats', or kill them to earn money from their hides etc. Yet, there are people who understand the importance of sustaining ecological balance, preserving the beauty of nature and believe in every creature's right to its existence. They spread awareness about the importance of wild-life and the necessity of saving them from extinction.
