eRevMax Tigers in search of Royal Bengal Tigers


We, the eRevMax Connect team in Kolkata decided to bring 2013 to a dramatic end - we decided to have a rendezvous with the Royal Bengal Tigers. So, off we went to Sunderbans - considered the home to these tigers. The Sunderbans are a part of the world's largest delta formed by the mighty rivers Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna. Situated on the lower end of the Gangetic West Bengal, it is also the world’s largest estuarine forest. The Sunderbans is criss-crossed by hundreds of creeks and tributaries.

We started early on a cold December morning from Kolkata, and after a 4 hour bus journey, we got on the boat that would take us to the forests. As the boat sailed through the river, we were mesmerized by the greenery around the mangroves forest. In just 3 hrs we were out from the ugly concrete jungle and entered the beautiful greenery of a natural jungle.



We were excited when we found a giant crocodile resting on the bank of rivers, deers grazing grass and birds chirping all around. While moving slowly on the river, we were all praying and hoping that we would get lucky and get a chance to see the tigers in all their glory - but alas - it was not to be!

We had to content ourselves with the crocs and deers - which in itself was a hell of an experience. The whole journey was an eye-opener as we realized that there is so much life and greenery in these jungles. It was an amazing experience - by the evening as the sun turned red,our boat reached the river bank and we left Sunderbans with the promise to return again soon to this green Delta.
