Singa means lion in the ancient Indo-European language of
Sanskrit.
In her book “Shadows on the Grass”, Karen Blixen says: “But
a lion-hunt each single time is an affair of perfect harmony,
of deep, burning, mutual desire and reverence between two
truthful and undaunted creatures, on the same wavelength.
A lion on the plain bears a greater likeness to ancient monu-
mental stone lions than to the lion which today you see in a
zoo; the sight of him goes straight to the heart.
If I get this lion, the King of Denmark is to have the skin.”
