Thank you for turning up and reading my article.
My love for wildlife was merely an accident. I along with a few friends just landed up at Ranthambore National Park, Sawai Madhopur Distt. Rajasthan India. This was a very unusual trip for me since i have always loved luxury and relaxing holidays, but little
did i knew that once i enter the forest we lovingly call as Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, I went all Gaga over this place.
I hardly knew what i was doing there except for looking at a few deer roam around and a few birds here and there and then to my surprise i was asked to sit back tight as the gypsy caught with unusual adrenaline and flew it seemed like i was on the last ride
of my life.
For good two minutes i was rather angry for being there all covered by dust and splashes but than it all came to a halt and in a split second it changed my outlook for wildlife forever, A gigantic roar from across the bushes was enough to send chill down to
the spine and lips sealed i looked to the other side of waters(Rajbagh Lake) and it was a sight to behold and treasure a female tigress(T-19) aka Krishna showed up frowning towards the maddened rush of gypsy and canters, As a few hundred eyes were lit up seeing
the beast walk around the bushes and what happened next was a mere dream.
The light started to fade away and as the tigress walked away followed by 3 beautiful cubs and what more could you ask for. The light almost giving up as i stood admiring the beautiful relationship of the mother and her 3 adorable cubs who walked beside her
in a straight line unaware of surroundings and soon disappeared in the habitat i now know as Malik Talab at Zone no. 3 of RNP.
Amidst the hustle bustle of my daily life coming into a jungle where i could literally hear myself breath,inhaling that fresh crisp air that brought peace to my mind, a feeling of a different world, a glimpse of a relation of a mother and baby which wasn't
too different from real life human relations and that was the point RNP became a addiction and a wonderful 2nd home to me, I visit almost every month familiar to every Zone(1-10) and very familiar to almost all named tigers, May it be courageous story of T-16(Machli)
or the Ravishing T-24(Ustaad) or the hunkT-72(Sultan) and many family like names to me now.
Do love Nature, Protect Wildlife, Respect Animals and pledge to help make earth a better place for all to live in..!
