Bandhavgarh-I

Pugmarks of hope

Yes, there are pugmarks of hope, flights of excitement and calls for a bright future.

When the majestic tiger strolls past you with an air of indifference just because it is not hungry, you are bound to question the selfish attitude of our entire clan, i.e., human beings. And the fear-filled eyes of the deer make you appear like a villain.

Bandhavgarh, a wildlife sanctuary in central India’s Madhya Pradesh is a delight for nature lovers. Spread over 105 sq kms (core), it is home to 36 species of mammals, 250 birds and 70 butterflies.

I shall write in detail about the entire experience. Keep tuned in, but before I leave, here I present the royal cat walk to you:

  1. When the majestic tiger strolls past you with an air of indifference just because it is not hungry, you are bound to question the selfish attitude of our entire clan, i.e., human beings.(why? do u wish we humans need to offer ourselves to the tiget so that its hunger is not fulfilled by a deer? and that would be selfless? actually, this would then bring in heights of mannerism in humans with all following the concept of “pehle aap”)

    And the fear-filled eyes of the deer make you appear like a villain.
    (if the tiger wasn’t hungry, why were the eyes of the deer fear filled? was it fearful of pink in the jungle…man! pink ate the deer?!?! – LOL pssst, how did the deer taste?)

    hope details of ur experience will clarify the above doubts
    and were there any pink flowers in the jungle….definitely pink panther? ;P

  2. Ah Tej!

    yes, there were pink flowers and pink butterflies for the saving grace!

    And yes yes, the updates to this post shall clear all your doubts! Btw, I am a veggie to the core and I will not eat the tiger/deer even if it means survival of the fittest 😀

  3. The grand cat walk by Indian tigers is something, the model can take a lesson. The attitude of the predator is gracefully indifferent to the surroundings!

    What a creature! The more I see them in wild, the more I want to visit such places at every opportunity!

  4. You are so true. I adore the big cats, and particularly their walk. Thank you for sharing this. Please feel welcomed to get in touch with me about the exhibition you mentioned on LinkedIn. With best regards ~ Paloma
