The students in Srinagar may not have seen a tiger, but their dwindling population has clearly made them worried.

A painting competition, organised in Srinagar, was the Valley's first attempt to spread awareness to save India's national animal.

''It is a shame the tiger are most magnificent animal in the world is also most endangered. Now it is the time for us to wake up,'' said a participant.

''Killing of tiger at such a rate automatically affect our national pride. What I think is India is losing in this particular field and I can't see India lose. That is what inspired me to come forward,'' said another participant.

After more than a 1000 of them signed on to NDTV's Save the Tiger campaign, students of Srinagar's Burn Hall school came up with the best ideas to save the big cats.

''When we can live, why don't we allow the tigers to live also? It is God's gift,'' said a participant.

The students at Srinagar's Burn hall school all the student have one demand - save the tiger.
