“I orient my ears toward the rustle. In the distant foliage, I hear not a roar but a breath, and I wish I had something more than my humble shooting machine to save my life. My heart pounds and I tighten my grip on the camera. And without a warning, tearing the leaves apart, pounces out from the dark, the magnificent creature of black and yellow stripes.

With over 150 photographs, Arjun Anand’s Hamir – The Fallen Prince of Ranthambhore, takes you right into the Ranthambore National Park to witness the most enchanting beast and its bitter-sweet tale.
“This is a beautiful book, and captures the glory of Ranthambore. While looking at the pictures, I felt as if I am standing right in the middle of the park. This book will significantly contribute to the overall growth and development of the Ranthambore Tigers.” – Mr Sukhram Bishnoi
