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. I forget my dread for a moment and surrender to the regal presence. And then the prince roars. And flashes its dagger-like-teeth…

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 (Hon’ble Minister for Forest and Environment, Govt. of Rajasthan)
