Here is the post dedicated to the most played card game in our household parties that is Rummy. I remember from childhood, whenever our all kins gather in a family get together, we used to play rummy in the night and it was fun playing rummy and tambola, while eating some home made snacks and enjoying the thrill of the game.

My Mom has been playing Rummy from quite a long time as she is regular member of the colony kiti parties. So thats how I learned playing rummy right from childhood. Now, whenever we get free and through a party on weekends with friends we play rummy just for fun and excitement and when we win the money, that goes back again into the party. šŸ™‚

From quite sometime now, John and I came to know about online rummy websites in India but I haven’t had a time to look upon and play on those portals. There were many, to name a few sites such as classic rummy, Junglee rummy, rummy circle and many more. Basically they are running skill games on their websites and earn by getting certain amount as rack. Not a bad idea to play rummy online just for thrill and excel our skills that can be used in the parties. However, these websites not only offer games but conduct rummy tournaments as well. I have recently came across one google Ad about World Rummy Tournament. Well one of the famous lottery brand in India, PlayWin is conducting a World Rummy Tournament which is sponsored by an online rummy website JungleeRummy.com.

World Rummy Tournament

Earlier, I was reluctant to check that Ad. Yesterday only when I clicked the Ad, I came to know about the details and amount of prizes thats been on offer in the tournament. Its a huge prize pool of Rs. 1 Crore thats too the company is claiming is Guaranteed. The main fascinating thing about the event is that they are conducting the event on a Cruize Ship sailing from Malaysia and Thailand. I love to visit Malaysia and Thailand whenever we get some bonuses and once every two years we visit Malaysia or Singapore. So far we have travelled Five South Asian countries and the experience was awesome.

I thought I should give it a try and started searching for details about the rummy tournament by Playwin. Then I came to know that they are two ways to get into the tournament. One is to get the direct tickets from their World Rummy Tournament portal dedicated for sailing WRT tickets online and Second way is to play rummy qualifier games on their website and compete with other rummy players. Since the ticket cost was bit higher for my budget ( it was costing around 1.2 lakh Indian Rupees) though. therefore, I started playing for the online qualifier tournaments, being held on jungleerummy.com and crossed stageII level of the tournament. I am still playing for the final round and hopefully I may make it upto the final event.

The experience of play online is in itself very much exciting becauseĀ  its like a war with your friends and other competitors to secure your tickets for the final. I am relishing it at the moment, the website also props up by giving bonuses from time to time that keeps me stick to the game and hone my skill for the final event.

I will post my experiences onĀ  a later date once I got selected for the final event. till then good buy guys.. write to you soon.

P.S. For all my friends, try this World Rummy Tournament Qualifier once, We don’t know we may sail together from Malaysia to Thialand. Keeping Play and have fun. … Shaila

 

 

 

Isn’t it surprising that the population of Panthera tigris in India, widely known as the land of tiger is decreasing at such an alarming rate that has led to theĀ  fear of extinction of this gloriousĀ  national animal from India.Ā  Famous for its grace, strength, agility and enormous power, this lord of the jungle is in extreme threat of extinction.

Due to illegal smuggling of Tiger Skin and other body parts, there are very few tigers left in the world today. According to the World Census of Tigers, there are only 5000 -7000 tigers in the world today.Ā  Out of which, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, China and Myanmar claim to have a population of 3000 to 4500 and India alone claims to have a population of 2500 to 3750. However, a 2008 census held by Government of India revealed that the tiger population had dropped to 1,411. What started as a Royal Sport during the olden times is now a target of Poaching and Depleting Habitat. Our National Animal is fighting for its life!

The population of tiger is not only decreasing because of illegal poaching but also because of continuous shrinking of its natural habitat. If we don’t act now, we’ll loose this beautiful heritage from us. The questions is what we can do??? and How we can save the tiger???

Every little bit helps. You can speak up about the cause. You can write or blog about our tigers. Even staying up-to-date with tiger facts like knowledge of tiger sanctuaries, their population, news updates, etc. helps. You can also donate money to NGOs working for the cause, like WWF-India.

Tiger Facts

  • From around 40,000 tigers at the turn of the last century, there are just 1411 tigers left in India.
  • 2009 was the worst year for tigers in India, with 86 deaths reported.
  • There are 37 Tiger sanctuaries in India. However, 17 sanctuaries are on the verge of losing their tiger population.
  • Corbett National Park is the oldest tiger park in India. It was created in 1936 as ā€˜Hailey National Parkā€™.Ā  The Kanha National Parkā€™s lush sal and bamboo forests, grassy meadows and ravines provided inspiration to Rudyard Kipling for his famous novel, The Jungle Book.
