The Saviour of Indian Tigers! Remembering Indira Gandhi on her 93rd birthday anniversary!

Indira Gandhi, the conservation-minded Prime Minister, launched project tiger in 1973 by creating 9 tiger reserves. Her administration banned tiger hunting and tiger trade which doubled tiger population from estimated population of 1800 at the time of project tiger launch. Had she not put a ban, India would have probably lost all of the tigers in another 10 years.
