Tiger! Tiger! is a collection of eight stories based on the ‘real-life’ incidents of the author Pratibha Nath, a teacher-turned-journalist and storyteller. She tries to strengthen the bond of a sense of belonging to our culture and tradition. Written in a simple and lively style, these stories entrench a value system and can help restore lost moral values in society, if understood in true spirit.

About Author

All the stories in this collection are based on true incidents, most of them gathered from my personal experience. The place names are where the action actually took place.

You can find them on the map. And the atmosphere of each individual story is absolutely true to life. Thus the Sunderbans are heavily forested and teeming with wildlife. The waterfront at Haldia is hard to beat for desolation. Villagers in the coastal areas of Orissa live in constant fear of cyclonic storms. And there is in Bhimtal, a cottage exactly like the one described in the story ';Three on the Run'. The cave above the river Saraur still exists but the surroundings have changed. On our first trip, many years ago, we took the only available route to the cave, and that was by swinging in an arc on aerial banyan roots. But now there are steps, 555 down and 555 up, with steep paths linking the different flights of steps. An arduous but unforgettable experience!
