Myself, Dr Manish Agrawal, an orthoapedic surgeon and a passionate cyclist. I am also one of the admins of Udaipur Cycling Club.

Few days back, I went to Sajjangarh biological park with my son. We went there on our cycles on a Sunday. I had an idea that cycles, being eco-friendly are allowed inside the park and I believe a better way to see the park as compared to battery operated Golf carts. There were rented bicycles available there in the past as well.

To our surprise, we were asked to park our cycles outside and were told that cycles are no longer allowed inside. We returned disappointed.

I believe, cycles do not cause any harm to environment or the animals and should be encouraged inside. Yes you can make some strict rules for the cyclists like wearing a helmet compulsorily, riding in cycling lanes only and following drafting rules etc.

Kindly consider the decision.

Sir, Since last 2-3 months a Panther is seen in agri-fields of Village Panchayat Chhapradi ( in Jaitpur-khichi and Chhapradi villages ) and has been a permanent danger for live stock and the human beings / citizens / farmers of the area . Carrot sowing is at its peak and farmers loss of life while watering the fields in the night hours . Amer area forest guard –Rajendra (8740077090) and Mr. Kalu (9549872764) have , in the last 15 days , been apprised of the movement of the panther with its hair and the foot prints .
But , nothing more than assurances seen done in this regard . Even Ranger Forest Amer /Kookas area has not paid his visit till date , to take stock of the Panther movement and assess fear in the minds of the people/farmers of that area .
Hope , your honour will intervene and ask the concerned to rush to the site .
With regards !..

Like many people in the UK I have been following the story of the little elephant Suman and her mother Chanda and father Bijli. As you must know all are brutally treated and horrifically Suman as only known cruelty all her life. The UK press, both the newspapers, magazines and TV have been showing videos of little Suman distressed and isolated and it has used and horrified people here.

I know that the amazing elephant rescuers Wildlife SOS are campaigning to free Suman, Chandra and Bijli. They are offering a sanctuary where they can live the rest of their lives free from cruelty and in peace.

Please, please find it in your hearts to help Wildlife SOS help the elephants. I believe they are being kept illegally as well as in cruelty.

Please help. The publicity that would come from this rescue can only do the utmost to show India as a compassionate and caring country.

Thank you

Suman is a six-year-old elephant living in shackles, hidden away from authorities underground, isolated from her mother. Suman has already been through so much; she was born into an abusive circus, then sold to a notoriously cruel owner in the notoriously cruel city of Jaipur. Today she is being forced to live in a dark basement, isolated from her family, hidden away from anyone who could help. If her owner decides to employ her as a riding-elephant, men will beat her and break her spirit to make her “tame enough for work.” And she will work long, hard hours until the day she drops.

Baby elephants like Suman should never have to live like this! We rescued Suman’s sister Peanut from the same circus that abused Suman several years ago, when Peanut was about the same age Suman is now. Today Peanut has a beautiful life, roaming green spaces with other elephants, full of energy and spirit. Suman deserves this life too, as do her mother and father. All together, one family, at our sanctuary. That is our goal.

Suman’s mother, Chanda, has been bred to the point of exhaustion — only to watch her babies repeatedly wrenched away and sold into horrible lives. Chanda is being forced to give tourist rides through the scorching heat in Jaipur, heavy loads weighing down her spine. Suman’s father, Bijli, was also sold into a thankless life of labor in Jaipur.

We cannot allow this. We cannot stand by and watch Suman’s little spirit break through cruelty and neglect. We cannot allow her future to be five decades of abuse and neglect in Jaipur, instead of five decades of love with her family at Wildlife
SOS rescue center.
