This Pongal holiday 2014 is kept as low profile in Ooty. It is because of the Tiger fear, many remains inside house. The villages near doddabetta and surrounding areas remain closed with minimum outside activities. The search for the Tiger is still on. The local people here are on daily wages and they are struggling for money and food since they are not able to go out for work. The forest officials are hoping to catch the beast as quick as possible but finding and hunting the tiger in the hilly region is not easy. This tiger has killed 3 people so far.
