... A large-hearted gentleman ...

Is how Jim Corbett described the tiger.

Know what, when I was young, I would read ONLY shikar stories. Corbett, Anderson, Buddhadev Guha, and of course that spinechiller from Africa, Man-eaters of Tsavo.

I am 31 now. And I read a lot of other things. But even today, the Jim Corbett omnibus and the Kenneth Anderson omnibus, and the voluminous 'Wrijuda Samagro'-s are important companions.

I'm sure many of you have such memories as well.... tell me, without the tiger in Indian forests anymore, can your kids enjoy the stories the same way as you could, as you can? It all becomes a bit of a myth, doesn't it?

Save our tigers. For our childhood memories. And our kids'.
