Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

As far as asian lions are concerned, i have found out another way of indirectly comparing their relative size to people using other measuring intermediaries than cars..

There's a metre-gauge rail track that passes through the Gir landscape. The distance between the railway lines along the sleepers is exactly 1 metre. 
There are a few images of local people railway posing on said railway lines...

...as well as lions crossing it.

All three of the following photos were taken at the same place, that left turn, different seasons though.

Raju the Great, the largest of Gir during his time. Image was taken when he was old & ousted (died within a year).

Scary humans, and wary tigers.

A big predator, such as the tiger, needs vast, uninhabited landscapes to survive. Today, such landscapes are scarcely available, and interactions between the large predator and humans are unfortunately inevitable. Even more unfortunate is that tigers generally do not fare well during such encounters.

The encounter seen in the photo here is inside Kanha Tiger Reserve, but ended without any discomfort for either of the parties. The workers, led by a forest guard, showed tremendous presence of mind, in collecting together and forming a unified groups. The tigeress, along with the cubs, understandably showed concern, but crossed without a second glance once she understood there was nothing to be wary about.

A tryst with probably the largest male tiger of Central India.

Is this what tiger tourism should look like ? who have liked to see the expression on the man's face had the tiger turned his way..


The entire episode kind of sullied my interest in one of the major parks of Central India...similar things did happen repeatedly during that visit...
