Three Kind of Lions - Jungle, Circus and Zoo

Lion of Circus - He gets good food and good grooming every day. In lieu of that he need to follow the instruction of his ring master, perform every day and keep every one including his owner, ring master and viewers happy. In case of any illness, circus owner takes care of all medical assistance also. However the day circus owner finds that he is beyond useful life and even medical treatment will not help him perform in shows, he is discarded, killed or sold. Also in case circus goes into losses or a Govt regulations ban it, it is problems for the lion of circus.

Lion of Zoo - He gets good food for all life and also medical treatment. He is relaxed and need not perform for most of his life. There is no ring master. However he is in cage. Every one is afraid of him, even when he is in cage, however he has no real power. There is no risk of Govt Ban or losses as usually zoo are govt funded. They get lot of support, food, water, comfort in all conditions. Any adverse situations like hot weather and you find coolers being organised for them. Lions in zoo can not pro-create. Some experiments to create jungle like conditions for pro-creations have been done with almost zero success rate.

Lion of Jungle  - He is free and do what he wish to do. However he needs to hunt for the food every day. There is no safety and security. However statistics says that he does not face any real issues in real life and manage to find food every day and is usually more healthy and happy and usually gets more and better quality of food than the ones in zoo and circus. Well there are some problems and they are usually very serious as he has to manage every thing on his own.

Govt or Public have started supporting lions in the jungle. With every passing year, support is increasing as almost every one ie Govt and Public realizes that Zoo and Circus can not sustain with out the lion in the jungle. He is the one who creates every thing including wealth for Zoo and Circus. He is the ALPHA MALE. The recent ads from AIRCEL on "save the tigers" is one such example of Public/Media efforts to support lions in Jungle.

Almost all lions from Zoo and Circus envy Lion from Jungle. They also want to go back to the nature  and have fun, but do not have guts or opportunities. They do talk about about safety and security at circus or Zoo.

Hi Vinay,
People working for MNC are like the Lions of the Circus, Academia lives in Zoos while entrepreneurs are the Lions roaming free in the Jungle.
And yes, government is putting its tax payers, through TDB and STEP schemes, to get more Lions of the circus and zoos to get back to the jungle.

"There is one step from the jungle to the zoo" (with apologies to Dr. Hook)

Lions of Zoos and Circus are only for entertainment; not for saving the Lions from extinction. Lions can survive only in Jungles, but for that they need jungles, rather protected jungles. Who will provide that? Public, Government, Police (Jungle Police) or all of these?

All of these.

Indian Govt, is doing something for Lions in the jungle and Entrepreneurs also. may be little but action has started.

Results are incubators, funding from multiple sources and lot of media coverage for entrepreneurs
