A Real Tiger ~ (Mother Tiger!)

Hindsight by Sunil Kumar for LankaWeb

Dec.10th 2006

This is an object lesson for those who try to falsely emulate tigers, particularly the LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam) who need to be made aware that real tigers have compassion. By comparison the little creatures depicted here could easily have ended up being the mother tiger's dinner. This in a relative sense is the same compassion shown by President Mahinda Rajapaksha towards the LTTE in not making them Armed Forces Cannon Fodder per se and is symbolic of the mother tiger here showing compassion to a bunch of pigs dressed up as tigers eventually looking for a safe haven where the pun is almost indelible!

However this instinctive compassion in Sri Lanka may not last forever as the patience of the administration is being severely tested by the local tiger imposter pigs disguised as tigers who need to govern themselves accordingly or face the consequences!

Moral of this story:-
"When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way,
you command the attention of the world and there is every likelihood of just rewards in the long term for those who implement them."

But to reiterate what was said at the beginning of this story, "don't let this mislead you as this may not last forever, Tamil Tigers beware! Pork chops by some standards are delectable even if wrapped in tiger skins where many pigs in tiger guise are likely to end up on the chopping block before peace is acheived in Sri Lanka!!
