Villagers perform “havan” for good health of cheetahs | News from Bhopal

BHOPAL: The recent deaths of cheetahs and their cubs in Kuno National Park, located in Madhya Pradesh’s Sheopur district, have sparked apprehension and anguish among local villagers. The worrying situation has not only caught the attention of the state government and the Forest Department, but has also deeply disturbed public opinion.
In an effort to ensure the safety and well-being of these majestic creatures, the residents of Karahal village have turned to the recitation of the Mahamrityunjaya mantra. They also held havan-pujan ceremonies specifically dedicated to cheetahs at the Hanuman temple in their village.
Through sincere prayers, these community members make a sincere plea for the safeguarding and conservation of the cheetahs that reside in Kuno National Park. Furthermore, their fervent wishes extend to the recovery of all sick cheetahs, hoping for their speedy return to health and vitality.
Recognizing the importance of the cheetah presence in India, the villagers believe that a thriving and multiplying cheetah population will attract a significant influx of tourists to the region. This increase in tourism, in turn, would create new job opportunities and foster prosperity for the country.
Girraj Paliwal, secretary of the Panchayat, recalled the responsibility entrusted to the local community by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “The loss of these magnificent creatures could hamper development prospects for the area,” he said.
Two other cubs of the cheetah named Jwala tragically lost their lives on May 25. In the midst of this tragic situation, park officials are working diligently to save Jwala’s remaining cub, using their best efforts to ensure its survival.
