When a tiger crouches in the dark, you learn to be silent. When the scream of a deer pierces the air, you know it has made its kill. My journey to Jim Corbett National Park let me be privy to the workings of the wild and know how harsh life there can be. In the jungle where ‘Eat or Be Eaten’ is the norm, all animals are unknowingly part of a delicate natural balance that I now have a profound respect for. On this journey, I learnt to look at animals as humans, albeit in a different form, with their fears, aspirations, needs – all in place. Where I had expected a TV-like replay of a face off between predator and food, I was only met with stunning natural beauty that these animals call home, and the true joy was seeing them just be in their habitat, as undisturbed as possible.
