Tracking Tigers in Ranthambhore

 
Gobind Sagar Bhardwaj (Author)
Synopsis Set in the staggeringly beautiful environs of the Ranthambhore National Park, in the colorful Indian state of Rajasthan, Tracking Tigers in Ranthambhore is an insider's account of the lives of the regal beasts of the sub-continent. It is a wildlife tour de force, told with an extraordinary blend of fluid narrative and scientific data. Superb photographs, shot by the author, complement the text, which follows the style of an exhaustive, amusing and meticulously detailed diary. The dwindling population of tigers worldwide has now crossed the danger mark. Their future in the wild is uncertain. Besides being one of the last remaining natural habitats of the Indian tiger, Ranthambhore National Park is also famous for relatively frequent sightings of the predator. Spread across sub-tropical forests, former royal hunting grounds, lakes, ridges, villages, temples, and a magnificent medieval fort, Ranthambhore is an unusual tiger reserve, not just to explore but also to police and nurture.

About the author

Gobind Sagar Bhardwaj

Gobind Sagar Bhardwaj, 39, is a serving officer in the Indian Forest Service.  Always a wildlife enthusiast, writer and botanist (he has a master’s degree in botany and philosophy), Bhardwaj developed a lasting passion for tigers during his tenure as Deputy Field Director at Ranthambore.  During this period, he employed a photo identity method for monitoring tigers.  He carried out a systematic and scientific documentation of the big cat’s behaviour, based on 209 sightings of tigers and their families.  Currently, he is the only serving officer who bears a tiger’s pug mark on his back-the result of an attack in 1997!  His wife, Ritu, shares his love for wildlife, and is a constant source of encouragement and support.
