The Future of bandipur
Since 2016 on my first ever trip to Bandipur, I was fortunate enough to sight the Legend, the Prince himself. Since then on my visits, I started to get to know about some famous tigers of bandipur. It was then I came to know about the extremely beautiful Sundari. Her grace and boldness was known all around. Since then then it was a dream to sight her. I missed her sight 28 times in a span of 4 years and every time I missed her I was upset, not because I missed sighting a tiger but for missing her. Like they say, “Wildlife surprises you when it’s least expected”. I was just on a causal visit to Bandipura last week and there was a huge downpour of rains. We went in pursuit of her but decided to stop at a point as the rains got too heavy. Just when we hit reverse, I saw a big orange patch walking towards us. It was the Queen herself ! Sundari was walking head on with her two grown up sons ! “Am I dreaming ? 😂” I started to wonder… The four year wait ended in literal seconds.
