The manner of his (the Tiger King's) death IS a matter of extraordinary interest. Comment .
When the king was born, the astrologer made a prophecy that someday the king would be killed by the hundredth tiger while encountering it. The king made every effort to disprove the astrologer’s prophecy. To ensure, he killed a hundred tigers. Astonishingly, the prophecy can’t be indisputably disproved as the king was ultimately killed by a tiger, though neither by a real one nor by the hundredth one. The hundredth tiger, which was weak and lifeless, escaped the Maharaja’s bullet by fainting at the shock of the bullet whizzing past. It was the “tiny little wooden tiger” from the toy shop that caused the death of Tiger King. Hence, its death is a matter of great interest.
