Hi Apoorva,
 
I forgot to mention one thing. :-
 
I bow down with immense shame in front of you. Today in my life i fooled myself. I cant even catch a rat or never ever seen a crocodile or tiger.
 
If you could forgive me for myact i will be thankful to you. I 'm very much deeply regretting of doing such an inane thing in my life.
 
Kindly please FORGIVE me. I won't go anything as such to anyone in my life.
 
I'm a very simple guy, 24yr old from a middle class family. don't know anything and dont have any right to disturb you.
 
It must be hard for you to forgive me bt please understand me as being a human and i promise there won't be anything such i will do in my life.
 
I can't even think of wild life ..just seen animals in zoo.
 
kindly remove my email from your blog. more than that i can't do anything bt just promise of not doing such kind act in my complete life.
 
I again bend on my kness and apologize to you.
 
Please accept my apology  !
 
Please ! do this favour on me.

Not killing them doesnt mean it is authorized to trade in them. I never mentioned you hunting the animals and then trading in them. I dont think of you as a poacher Ramesh. It is simply ILLEGAL to trade in wild animal skins in India. And as a citizen of the country, it's your job to abide by the law. Don't get me wrong. My tone was intended to be harsh because you framed your question in a very wrong manner. You should clarify things you say .. especially when they pertain to such sensitive issues. 

And you ought to understand that we're not aggressive for the heck of it. We're aggressive coz these times have forced us to become that way and the slightest error in your framing of sentences could make you look like the cruel-est of people. I know people who would be willing to catch hold of you and take u to task only coz they have seen your mail. But thankfully, I only thought of it as some sort of instigation. 

Never mind. Just understand that its illegal. If you want information on how u can CONSERVE wildlife, then you feel free to mail me whenever you like. But for such stuff, if you ask me, I can only get you into trouble with the authorities. 

Best,
Apoorva Joshi.

First of all, dont EVER send me a "General Enquiry" like that again. 

Secondly - if you're in the trading business, I suggest you trade clothes made of cotton instead of skins of wild animals. Also, trade grocery, rice, wheat, cotton, soft drinks, medical supplies, electronic items.. whatever the heck..

If you expect to come across a Tiger and Crocodile skin by emailing people who CONSERVE these animals, you're making the worst mistake of your life mate. I don't know what you are, where you are and who you are or else I'd have traded YOU to Tibet. 

And Mr.Ramesh Malhotra I AM doing well. I would also do well to tell you exactly just what happens to people who trade in Tiger skins and Crocodile skins. Look for yourself and you'll see how angry conservationists can get if you get on their wrong side. 

Don't ever ask any one that question again. And if you're so interested in fashion, wear clothes. Not animals.
