MAN-KILLER Vs MAN-EATER
The recent incident of the attack of a village women in Wayanad by a Man-Eater (Tiger), resulting in her death, shows how we are exposed to the Wild Animals. We have had such incidents earlier also. These fatal attacks are mainly due to the Exodus of the wild animals from deep jungles to human inhabited area in search of prey which are either extinct or disappeared due to the breakdown of “Jungle Laws” by the developers and resort builders in the forest territory.
Sudden growth of structures badly affects the ecological balance of Wild life in the forest and the “Fauna & Fonda” get scared and move out of the jungles. Adivasis or the Tribal people knew the Jungle rules and lived together without any serious damages, avoiding direct encounter with wild animals. But the recent growth of huge structures and resorts occupying large areas of forest, the wild animals started coming out of the deep forest, in search of prey. These animals attacked the villagers at times when they are starving. Such case only caused the death of the village woman in Wayanad .To guard against this type of dreadful situation we have to retain the “Jungle Laws” and stop interference with the natural surroundings.
Now coming back to the “Man Killers” we have had few cases in the past. These murderers were “hands in gloves” with their selected politicians for “security cover” for their dastardly crimes. They also take the shelter of renowned lawyers for legal support to come out from the clutches of Law. This unholy relation with the men in power, results in continuous cases of crimes leading to murder of innocent people also.
We were all shocked to hear the murder of the security Sri. Chandrabose of the “Shoba city “ in Trichur. The Killer Nissam took it as “Fun or Sports” to chase up in car and kill the poor man on duty. Can we imagine such deadly assaults to an unarmed person? Even the enemies do not attack an unarmed individual. .
It is strange to read the media report, that the Police officials did not record the statements of the victim before his death!!
Now everybody must seriously think over this kind of inhuman behaviour, (Worse than the Man Eater which killed for its food), by an individual who disobeys the “Law of the Land”. What can be the punishment for this “cold blooded’ murder by a “Man Killer” compared to the one meted out to the “Man Eater” who killed for its food? Let Divinity in action be our watchword in life..
