Bandipur National Park: Give way to the jumbos


Bandipur National Park in Karnataka is partly a tiger reserve. The park's management comes under the government's Project Tiger programme.



Forest guards in Bandipur—underpaid and overworked—are the people who are trying to stop skilled poachers armed with better weapons. Without argument they deserve a nice cottage, ample supply of good food and higher salaries. 


The park is also rich in flora. And the evenings are beautiful.



The tigers have gone to their resting place, and it's time for humans to go home too—except for the forest guards.
