Welcome to Corbett's World

Dear Friends,
I am creating this blog to serve as a vibrant discussion platform and information hub for all the Jungle lovers and conservationists. Particularly, I hope, people who have loved Jim Corbett, his life and his literature would find this blog very passionate about the great hunter and humanist. I was in in the first year of my junior high when I got introduced to Corbett's world.
I still remember the day, in fact. I was getting home after a crazy day at school and I was enjoying a stop-over at my uncle's place to have a chat with my cousin, Pinku Bhai. I saw him a bit engrossed with a book that had a big picture of a tiger on its cover. As a child, and I believe that is true about all children around the world, I had great fascination about the tiger. I was almost about to rip the book off his hand, he decided to hand in the book to me to have a look. But he was careful enough to put a remark,"I think you are going to fall in love with the book." And he was abso-damn-lutely right. I sat at his place for the next four hours and read around two hundred pages of the ""Man-eaters of Kumaon" before my mom showed up to get me home. Twenty two years have passed since that day and I am still no less passionate about Corbett and his legacy.
And I am here to share and learn, have fun and have a great time talking about everything that is related to Corbett's world and his jungle lore and his tiger (which zoologists have named Panthera Tigris Corbettee). I invite every one with a very warm and open heart ...  please share your views and information about JimCorbett, Corbett National Park and anything related to him. I hope every one will make an effort to enrich this forum with their experience.
All the best to us...Corbett's fans.

  3. Great job bhaiya...
    I'm not a huge fan of this but I am sure your blog will turn everyone.....into opening too many wiki links and I did the same.

    finally I feel myself more curious and very proud for being from Uttarakhand.
    now I am definitely gonna visit it and experience the life of man eaters.

  4. Thank you for visiting my page, Eklavya. I just put the picture of a tiger I had taken at Natural Zoo, VA, USA. Many more pictures to come and I am sure you are going to enjoy it.
    I have some pictures of your favorite white tiger too. I 'll include it sometime.

  5. Thank you, Anjali. I have one noble aim of letting everyone know about Corbett. Wish me luck.

  6. Ram, check this out….whats your take?

  7. Hey, this is great stuff. I think you should keep writing. Enjoyed reading it even though I am not a big Corbett fan! Take care and keep the good stuff coming :)
