Shortlisted Entry 5: Chandrashekar Sundaram from Chennai
Chandrashekar Sundaram's Tiger Story: 'On one evening safari, after almost an hour and half of no action, we decided to take a different route. As we slowly threaded past a Tusker (a bull elephant) standing on the road, out of nowhere we saw this dominant male tiger emerging out of the bushes. It had rained the previous day and he was out on a mission of fresh scent marking. In between he sat for a while to take rest. I strongly feel these magnificent species deserves all respect and have every bit of right like each of us. They're the guardian angels of Indian wilderness!'
