It is really difficult to put into words how wonderful one feels in the middle of the jungle where nobody knows what you are about to witness next.
“Ssssshhhhh” , said Javed , “Tiger is nearby, he is going to cross the road right in front of you , 100 % guaranteed Sir ,just be quiet” he continued. The whole family including Yuvi,the kiddo, obliged by being quiet, even though out of excitement , my eyes grew wide enough to convey my question very loudly to the driver -“How do you now ?” He then gestured to be quiet and to listen strange sounds carefully. We noticed that monkeys were indeed making a certain kind of whistling sound repeatedly. It meant that Tiger was on prowl, as told by Javed. We all froze there only with our eyes looking all over with shear excitement to have an up close & personal meeting with Mr. Tiger in his own abode.
15 minutes passed, nothing happened. “Missed call tha shayad” (Monkeys probably gave the missed call) said Javed and I gave him a piece of my mind,again through eyes, this time even wider with multiple folds between my eyes while Yuvi too got really pissed off. The adventure however continued till Javed stopped the car once again after about 5 minutes or so at a watch tower, . He again said , a little submissively this time , “Sir, believe me, he is here”. Javed obviously meant the Tiger.
Not willing to take another heart break, Yuvi showed his clear disbelief over Javed by crying as loudly as he could when he was supposed to be rather quiet and hence, we just clicked few photographs and then left towards grasslands near the exit gate.
