On March 4 we were at Corbett National Park in the foothills of the Himalayas, in India. On the second day we did a safari where our guide explained we had a “chance” to see a wild tiger.
For a long moment nobody said anything.
She paused at the edge of the road, no more than 25 feet in front of us.
More than fear I felt awe.
I felt a surge of tears that such a creature could still exist on our planet.
