Tiger and Deer


I asked him, ‘Tigers devour deer;
why do deer live beside the tigers then? '

‘They will live beside tigers. It is the doctrine.
Tigers never jump over deer if they don't feel hungry.
If the deer did not stay beside tigers, they would extinct
from earth many days ago. Men would then enter
the Sundarbans, loading trucks with deer would come back
to slaughter-house and destroy them over night.'
