Project Tiger – Immersion leads to understanding

Dsc08224

I’m on my way to Ranthambhore in Rajasthan, India’s northwestern desert state, better known for its rampaging Rajput warriors, colourful nomads, crumbling killas and camels. Sitting here in Singapore – well, mom said stop over, do, its on your way, from San Francisco to New Delhi – contemplating the beginnings of our work in this district. We call it Project Tiger, for Aditya Singh’s Ranthambhore Bagh – he’s our host – is but the beginning of the Ranthambhore Nature Reserve, one of the best known tiger sanctuaries in India. Here we hope to immerse ourselves in rural India, seeking to understand the enviroment and the constraints, that would shape our understanding of the needs of the local residents. Its summer there now and temperatures can reach over 40 celsius.
