Of the large predators that prowl untouched corners of our earth, the tiger is perhaps the most spectacular. It is neither the most powerful nor the most successful, but its appearance inspires a shiver of dread and fascination, its silence, its powerful flowing stride, its cold-eyed stare, its burnished coat, its very presence stops the jungle in its tracks. The deer freeze, call in alarm and flee, peacock squawk and flap away from its path, even the formidable rhino, wild buffalo and elephant eye it with respect. The tiger is the ultimate predator of the great Indian jungles. And it shows itself to humans only if wishes or one is skillful and persistent or sometimes just very lucky by taking this tour
