After a trip to many parks, mainly in central India, with the exception of Dudhwa, I finally went to Jim Corbet’s tiger reserve. The King of the Reserves, as it is often called, is also the first reserve in India to be established under the name Hayley’s Tiger Reserve, which was later named after the famous hunter and writer who named Choti Haldwani after his home. As a child I was always fascinated by his stories about man-eaters and the description of the time and place of the jungle and its inhabitants, both humans and animals. You or your family and friends can remember these stories over and over again on Jim Corbett’s omnibuses 1 and 2.

Like many jungles I’ve read, my trip to Terai Park was magical in many ways. The morning mist, which shows his last battle, is opposite the sun’s rays, although the limited visibility provides additional secrets and legends. The diverse life I saw blossoming through the lens and in the park will stay with me for a while. The mix of habitats in the crown of hills surrounding the park was spectacular and frightening. To this the Corbett-tiger was added, abundant but shy.

Coincidentally, my mother saw a tiger in the wild for the first time. A few years ago she accompanied me on a New Year’s Eve trip to Dudhwa, where we saw many safaris shortly after. My mother, Asha Huda, loves trees and wind and was very happy to return to the jungle after a long time. She prepared a number of metamachines for the journey, which was a salvation for a hungry group in the jungle. When I arrived in Germany after a trip of seven hours, I had the feeling that she would miss the evening safari. After missing the tea and umbrella, she was one of the first to jump into a jeep with a jacket, muffler and sunglasses.

It is good that she did, because late at night, just before she returned to the boarding house, which made her homesick for her father’s house, she saw not only her first tiger, but also three of them. They came and sat so close to our jeep that she felt both excited and extremely uncomfortable. Huh, you, yahin aake beit gaya? Please, Shalo! Kahin Ye Gadi Ke and Harhi Naaa Jaya – to see their excitement and the terrifying and understandable sight of one of nature’s greatest jewels, it was suddenly all the more worthwhile, which became the subject of many conversations.

These three bitches were 14 months old Parvali, a negligent mother, unlike mine, who had lost two previous litters. She now has three daughters, 14 months old, who came and, unlike Mr. Corbett, sat in front of our gypsy to admire her and have her photographed with a camera.

The most charming part of Corbett are the inns, the forest.

As India’s oldest park, the HRF reminds us of the glory of conservation history and much more. If we cannot get there or stay there, it will destroy the backbone of the tourism industry on which people’s livelihood depends, and in the future, the survival of the tiger.

Rahul Singh: 40

Rahul Singh, who looked like the head of Corbett’s tiger reserve, was more than welcome at Corbett’s headquarters in Rama, where a smart officer was in charge of most things. After his long-awaited visit to our holiday home in the woods, he was accompanied by a beautiful, friendly, IFS officer’s wife, who got on well with my mother.

His two favorite children, Harsch, 9 (in a tiger jersey sewn by his nani) and Shrey, 11, an inexperienced photographer who will soon be published in a book about Corbett on a coffee table, accompany their parents. They were very curious how an actor’s life begins. The discussion with the civil servant about nature conservation and the park was very informative and I was happy to see that the park is managed in such a good and friendly way. In our exchange there has long been a desire to document and humanize the tigers we meet during a visit to the king of the jungle. In my opinion, these people are the real border fighters in our war against nature. The welfare of these people is that of the tiger, which as a top predator is a sign of a healthy habitat, as is the number of termite mounds, which indicates the health of the forest.

Further reflection and recognition of the tiger race is an essential point agreed with Rahul, IFS Party 2004, FD Heaven on Earth Corbett. Only through the socio-economic benefits of the tiger can we survive the attack on Mother Nature.

Allow me to introduce some of them. I hope you’ll forgive the first attempts at writing such an essay.

TIGER CONE

A gentle, talkative man with childlike enthusiasm, a bit like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid duo who took us on four safaris in the park. His father died very young, his mother about ten years ago. His three beautiful daughters – Alishba, Arush, Anania – should be in love with this handsome traditional man with a lot of spirit, who actively plays the role of @CorbettNadeem on Instagram. It seems that his instinctive stalking depends on his childhood friend, although he only plays the game to make his friend Yrshad feel like he has everything under control.

The strongest jungle man has less contact with the outside world than Nadim and more with what happens in the park and with human and animal politics. A demanding man with a great understanding of the world around him. Mechanic Irshad’s father, Dilshad, was known as the fearless tiger. Never refuse the request to walk alone through the jungle at night with only one stick, if necessary. His two sons, Kabir and Archan Shad, go to good schools.

These two beautiful people, not traditionally educated, gentle and innocent, like most tigers, work together perfectly, alternately as drivers, guides and naturalists, in harmony with the beauty of the surrounding nature. Both of them accidentally cycled in Uttarakhand as children, and now they make a living.

Sincere Uttarakhand/Garhvali is characterized by a man with a soft voice who tells fairy tales about man-eaters and understands why and how they became one man, proud that his own conclusions are correct. His house in the village barely reaches 1400 meters when the bird flies from the holiday home Les Hinanoli, where he works as a nurse / carer. It takes him 2.5 hours to walk home, although this is not very possible if the jungle in between is thick. To go home by bus, the only bus leaves at 9 am and takes you home after 8 am. Distances are as much fun as in the jungle, sometimes difficult to understand, but like many other truths of nature rather casually accepted. His stories, which have broken down over the years, have been a relief, even for some prime ministers and other distinguished guests.

Hiali Dut Cargeti: 59

A striking example of the simplicity of the mountain people. 32 years of service, of which only the last eight years do not count as a daily bet. I was arrested in his presence when I saw him repairing jungle workers with his double 12-meter ton, which was planted in the ground near him for the first time. There are not many questions, his face is inspiring, because you feel he is there and he does his duty for your soul, no matter how much time passes.

Hyali Dut Kargeti plays Dashrata.

We were pleasantly surprised by his interest in acting. A picture of him on stage in the role of Dashrat, which he showed us with silent pride and a lot of entertainment. The man behind the evidence of human integration in the preservation of Corbett.

Still single. This man took my mother, my friend and photo guide Sarosh Lodhi from Faridabad and Delhi. The graduate high school student and son of the driver has been driving since he was fifteen years old. Throughout the journey, he kept showering in the hospital to make sure his guests felt at ease. He was hit when my mom gave him a homemade meti-ke pair. He showed me his international driver’s license and rewarded me with stories about where he became a fan of me by watching a road movie better known as Highway.

The man who picked us up in Carnal. Someone who is technologically smart, understands sweets, has biased opinions about our comfort and listens to our needs. He worked in Mumbai and, like me, loves the Wada Pavilion in Dream City. He also worked in the service sector in Sharjah and decided to go home and work. He lived with his wife and his two beautiful daughters Ira and Fatima and his sons Armaan and Aabis. Asked about poaching tigers, he laughed and said that thanks to the vigilance of the park’s forestry department, a tiger could not even kill a sibi, let alone a sibi. He told me that most people in the park depend on the park and therefore also on the tiger. He also stated that they would never allow the tiger to be harmed because the lives of his people depend on the Lord of the Jungle, as avoided by Edward James Corbett, known as Jim Corbett.
