    Who does not like tigers, the big cats? They are so adorable, even when close enough. The Royal Bengal Tiger is fierce is our national animal, and is definitely grand. When I first read The Jungle Book, as a kid, I looked down on my pet dog, because I wanted a big CAT. I knew that tigers could be easily found, but not Bagheera, so I had compromised, but I wanted one. As I grew up, I wanted to cuddle one. But, then I knew better, so spotting one at arm’s length was fair enough to me.
    Kanha National Park
    With help of few contacts, I could arrange a comfortable stay for me and my family at the Kanha National Park. As I am from the Central part of the country myself, I am quite familiar with the summers, so I very carefully chose to visit the Park during the winters. We all packed up, and moved for the Christmas holidays to Kanha. If not a reindeer, we could definitely spot a Barasingha. And the weather was pleasant, we could spot migratory birds and the delightful tigers just made our trip so worthwhile.

    The authorities shut the Park during Monsoon, because heavy rains affect security and can be hazardous. Even while we were there, when an unnatural shower started, we were escorted back to our lodge and were restricted from venturing out till it phased out. Officially the Park is open daily from the month of October to the month of June. But weather conditions have a great impact on the working hours. Right after the monsoons, the place is so lush and green. After all the times that I have visited this splendid park, I personally prefer and believe that the best time to visit the place will be from November to February.
