Jumping to a lions’ cage–a novel alternative to suicide!


As per reports, a man aged around 35 years in Bhubaneswar had some quarrel with his wife. The dispute between the two assuming graver proportions, he threatened his wife to kill himself. He not only threatened, he actually worked on it. He thought of a novel method to end his life. He reached the Nandankanan zoo at Bhubaneswar, reached the enclosure of the lions, where he saw the two of them sitting in a calm posture outside their cage. He gave them a salute imagining to himself as if it was the last one in his life. It was followed by his big jump into the very enclosure. The lions, since they were born in the zoo itself and practically had no experience of a real wild life including hunting, they were initially not that much aggressive, but soon their natural instinct worked, one of them jumping upon him fiercely dragging him by his neck, and the other one too joining the task causing innumerable bruises and wounds to the body of their victim. The Zoo staff rushed to the spot joined by the big crowd of visitors hurling volley of stones on the lions. Since the lions were not used to such type of attacks on them, they meekly went back to their cages at their own, and this gave the zoo staff an opportunity to lock the cage from outside. The victim was taken to a nearby hospital where his condition, as the concerned doctors said, was not completely out of risk. There is no news as to how his wife might have reacted to the whole episode. Looks like it had hardly any impact on her. May be she was too callous a woman.

  1. Sir by elucidating such a incident you have touched a very sensitive issue of relationships in family life. It reflects the need of extreme patience and natural love to keep the family bonds alive. As the tigers instinct worked and they attacked so the human instinct should always work to live with peace and love. But after all to confront lions seems a better idea rather than to confront or live with a callous wife ultimately leading to martyrdom.

  2. I ALSO READ THIS NEWS IN SOME NEWS-PAPER RECENTLY. THIS NOVEL IDEA OF COMMITTING SUICIDE IS THE FIRST OF ITS KIND. LIFE IS VERY PRECIOUS AND I FAIL TO UNDERSTAND HOW ONE CAN EVEN THINK OF FINISHING IT EVEN IN WORST CIRCUMSTANCES.

  3. I understand these lions are much in demand by married men. As far as wife is concerned, she is cursing unprofessionalism of both her husband and the lion.
