about book

Fascinated by the forests, its soothing verdant vibe and divine wilderness, Hariom Tiwari was disturbed by tiger's plight.

Being a professional cartoonist, he decided that he would act as their spokesperson. He started drawing cartoons portraying the tiger as a part of human society, in which they moved like we humans do. The purpose of these cartoons is to make you laugh loudly, or at least, bring a smile to your face with his take on comic human situations as inferred by the tiger.
The idea is to be sensitive and sympathetic to this unique and iconic creature, so that it survives and thrives forever.
