As Bandhavgarh reopens to tourists for a brand-new season, I offer a quick refresher of some of my favourite terms from its unique phraseology.
I find food for thought at Bheetri’s sighting and Sourabha finds elusive tranquility at Shesh Shaiya.
Sourabha’s first male tiger and first leopard, Kamta’s brilliance and a revival in the belief of beginner’s luck. All this in safari five.
As clouds gathered, what was looming wasn’t rain, but the revival of memories from another era.

In the first of a series of updates from my latest Bandhavgarh trip with Sourabha, here’s the story of how Sourabha, who had never seen tigers before, saw eight!
In the second part of the Remembering Tigers series, a tiger who has the word ‘CAT’ on his forehead and loves to walk in public.
In this first of a series remembering tigers, presenting the only tiger I’ve ever seen who was a sage. B2.
Listen carefully enough, and you may even hear youth coming back.
Old Hag had an interesting story to tell me after a long time. And it has lessons in psychology.
