1973 : "Project Tiger - launched by the Government of India in April 1973 as an effort to preserve and protect the royal animal, a few months after this majestic beast was declared the National Animal of India!
The Tiger as our National Animal symbolizes the power, strength, beauty, elegance, alertness, intelligence and endurance of the nation. And thus, it's symbolic and existential significance was realised in the year 1973. I would like to depict this through my art." ~ By @0sheen
