Jodhpur is witnessing a peaceful revolution. In fact, the youth of the Bishnoi community here are collecting money to build a grand memorial in memory of blackbucks buried in Kankani village after being hunted by Bollywood star Salman Khan 24 years ago. In fact, Salman Khan was accompanied by actors Saif Ali Khan, Tabu and Neelam when the blackbuck was hunted.
Prem Saran, one of the youths associated with the project, said that the land where these blackbucks were buried will soon have a memorial. At the same time, he said, "The memorial will have a blackbuck statue and 1,000 trees will be planted on the land where the animal was buried. Some young boys from his community have formed a WhatsApp group that has launched a fund collection campaign. They are collecting around Rs 500 to Rs 1000 from each person so that money can be collected at least up to about Rs.2 lakhs.'' At the same time, Prem said, 'Recently, a team with JCB machines came to clean the debris land and now we will start planting trees and build a blackbuck statue. The memorial will be built in about a year.'
He further said, "The reason it takes time is that trees take time to grow. We want deer, blackbucks and other animals to experience the forest while living here. Many deer die of fear when people pass by, so we want to make them feel safe.''
