It is not only humans who are migrating from one corner of the country to the other and trying to cope with new atmosphere, struggling to understand the different language. Rama, a 5-year-old male ‘Tamil tiger’ is facing same sort of problem in Udaipur, Rajasthan after he was brought here under an exchange program.
Rama who understands only Tamil was brought in Udaipur’s Sajjangarh Biological Park under an exchange offer with Chennai’s Arignar Anna Zoological Park for a pair of wolfs, has left the zoo staff in tizzy as the caretakers of the zoo are unable to ‘interact’ with him.
The officials of the Park have said in a sense of helplessness that either the tiger has to learn Mewari language or the caretakers have to learn Tamil.
Rama was born in Arignar Anna Zoological Park in 2011 and understands the commands of its present caretakers who speak Tamil.
Rama was brought to Udaipur, with an expectation of increase in footfall and revenue at the park.
