    On the Cover

    The cover photo, shot by Nilanjan Chatterjee, depicts the Royal Bengal Tiger or the Panthera tigris tigris. The majestic beast is found all over India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan. The people of the Indus Valley civilization were one of the first to use tigers as a cultural symbol. The tiger’s unique striped body provide it the perfect camouflage in high grass, making it ideal to stalk its favoured prey, the sambar (the largest Indian deer).
