Two eyes were watching in dark, behind the trunks.
The village was empty, no habitatants at all. Surrounded by dense forests, mountains and waterfalls, the night was in full youth. The moon was enjoying the night with stars.
The watching eye was of an eight year-old child, born in the forest, his father went to grant sabha called by the neighborhood villages along with all. Few kids and infants were left under the care of Saragi I, a sixteen year girl along with 12 year-old girl, Suna. 
Suddenly few militants rushed to the village, entered all the thatched huts of village, found no one. Sukru the boy was sleeping, but was woken up, by the huge cries of the infants.
The militants pulled out two girls asked them about the gramo sabha, attended by the villagers but they could not sy anything. 
Heavily built, muscular men of four snatched the two girls to the bushes. Sukru followed them, hid himself behind a big shalo tree. One after another started abusing the girls, jumped like hungry tigers, on their body and made them naked. The girl of 12 year lost her breath, the last men who abused her, just crushed her brutally. Another militant who was abusing Saragi got up said "why you killed her, Suna? I wanted to taste the fresh flesh." Then opened fire to him. The other two those were abusing Saragi, got up started firing one another andboth were dead.  Blood shredded bushes watching, the brutality, one loaded riffle was lying beside the tree. The eight year old child, didn't know about gun suddenly picked up the gun, killed the two militants, went to Saragi where she was almost lying dead in earth, holding the profile. Hpicked up the red turban of dead Suna, run away towards the forest, shouting that, "I have killed two tigers, tigers are still in forest, still in cities, still in villages. I will kill all of them, those who will kill my sisters, those who will say forest, water and fire does not belongs to us,
I am the "man against tigers!"
