Jaya and her family at ease near Rajbehra in Bandhavgrah.

Figure image
Mum and her brood of teenage cubs were out and about recently in their favoured meadow of Rajbehra.

Well fed and watered, it was time to take a leisurely stroll down a dusty road, chatting and playing as they went, five kings of the jungle now, with Mum still very much in charge.

A pack of tigers such as this family gathering is not surprising called an ‘Ambush’ or a ‘Streak’ ; suitably graphic descriptions of the likely words that a spotted deer or a sambar deer might think up for this family lineup on a Sunday outing.

Johnno is a big boy now, but really a big of a ‘scardy cat’, teased and picked on by his three sisters. He thinks he is the boss and tries to wrestle the biggest share of the food, believing sheer brutish bulk will bring him distinct advantage, but in this cat world, often cunning and guile are attributes best suited to these cats, features his three sisters, Crumbie, Murphy and Trya have in ample abundance.
For now they are all happy and safe under their mother’s protection.
