Stepping in to conserve the big cat, the Supreme Court on Tuesday directed that there shall be no tourism activity in any of the core zones of tiger reserves across the country.

A bench of justices Swatanter Kumar and Ibrahim Kalifulla also warned of contempt proceedings and imposition of exemplary costs on states which failed to notify the buffer zones in their respective tiger reserves.

A heart warming judgment for all the tiger lovers they should have imposed severe punishment and fine for violation of the rule and also more punishment for poaching

Tiger tourism, or for frequent law breaking irresponsible tourism?

Are you serious? You mean to say that poachers keep away just because some tourists roam around in jeeps, half of whom would faint at the mere sound of bullet being fired!

Poaching is an entirely different problem, nothing to do with tourists movement.

Curious as to what will happen to the local populace in the parks, employed as guides/trackers. Will they be out of jobs and perhaps turn to more unsavoury activities themselves?
Some of my ramblings!

Actually, there are always such people. When there are issues to evacuate footpath (from hawkers) for pedestrians, there are so many small traders to suffer. To ban ponies/horses in Kedar, there are localites to suffer.

But good things need to proceed on it's way.

Can one locate the actual judgement ? SCI does not render judgement out of the blue - There must have been a formidable appeal, and I am sure all the parties were well aware of what the case hinged on.

This is typical Indian bureaucratic gobbleygook .... at least without provided area maps as reference that is. From what I can gather & from the recent 'redesignations' at Ranthambhore & Sariska .... not too much has changed with respect to park access & for the average wildlife viewing tourist.

Understanding specifically how the terms 'buffer' & 'core' are defined & regulated by the forest department being the key point of interest in this case - especially with respect to potential alterations in park routes/access & total vehicles/tour per day.

Quote:
JAIPUR: The forest department has finally notified the buffer zones of Sariska Tiger Reserve and Ranthambhore National Park. The notification of buffer zones would help regulate commercialization of revenue land and create a better habitat for the big cat.

As per the notification issued under Wildlife (Protection) Act, a 298 sq km of buffer area has been added to the Ranthambore park which is spread over approximately 400 sq km. Similarly, 392 sq km buffer area has been added to the STR, which is spread over 800 sq km.

Supreme Court Bans Tiger Tourism in Core Zones

Dear all,

I read this disturbing news in today's Hindustan Times that Supreme Court has directed all state governments to ban tiger tourism in core zones and restrict the tourism only to buffer areas. We have all been hearing about this case for the last few years but never thought it would come to this. I think we should all come forward and do something. Although supreme court thinks that it will help restore our tiger population I think it will have a strong negative effect on the tiger population. There are so many people in this country whose livelihood depends on tiger tourism and most of them are locals who protect tigers from poachers because they have a vested interest in this. I still can't imagine the thought of being deprived of our beautiful jungles.

Through much of recent history; conservatives, neo-nazis, BaniaDal kooks and other kinds of fringeware were the champion of the rule of the Law and faith on the ability of the Supreme Courts to rule on important matters - Whether it was US, Israel, UK and now India.

The argument went as follows: Supreme Court will uphold the law or rule on the "law" as was enacted but not inforced. But, when the ruling turns out not to their liking - be it Health Care Act in the US, Marriage age for Americans & Latinos & Age of boinking in the UK, or the Draft dodging (exemption) in Israel; And now the ban on tourism in tiger reserves in India. Then conservatives come out of the woodworks and show their true color - A total disdain for law and due process. Heck the conservatives (open or closeted) even dislike principles of democracy too.

As observed, most if not all of the so called law abiding conservatives without reading or digesting the ruling, jumped on the bandwagon of their blogging leaders, the Murdoch News networks propaganda, and hate radio in the West.

Overnight the law and order conservatives turn into raving lunatics and hate speech, and venom pours in the airwaves, and the digital world. So there is a pattern.

The Times of Indias, and the NDTVs and the talking heads of Desitalk shows are no different than Limbaughs and Hannitys of the world - and they are a merry band of followers. Monkey see - Monkey do. Every bit of news tha I have read is short on details and long on hype and hysteria.

Either, we, the decent civil society support the rule of the law, totally and unequivocally even if it means having decisions we don't like - Or we show ourselves to be strain of same Talibanisque and skinhead followers and lash out when our eye candies are taken away from us. Ban on tiger oogling for some, or the ban on dancing girls for others

In the US, majority of the current opposers to the Supreme Court ruling have not even bothered to read the actual judgements, but are absolutely willing to slurp the bile vomited by the hate and shock radio and bloggers.

How easily we in the West, are willing to condemn when a judgement does not suit our self-interest. Be it Tiger Reserves, Mining rights, BT Brinjal, Sale of Fighter Jets or Gas/petroleum complexes.

Do we stoop to the same low level of the protesting, tram burning, stadium trashing "Cholbe Naas" if they lose a stupid cricket game ? (O.K O.K we in the West do it too, We riot and burn police cars when our team loses in Football or Hockey )

It is their country, their dynamics, their issues, and their Supreme Court. Who are we to pontificate ?

Get hold of the actual court decision rather than lap up the regurgitated tired sensationalism.
