We visit Bandhavgarh regularly: until 2011 however, we had never met B2. He is an important link in the story of Bandhavgarh. Father, amongst many, to Bamera, the current Alpha Male, he was largely responsible for the relatively healthy population of tigers in the area.
Then one morning in the Mirchiani area, walking towards us, with his mind on breakfast , was B2. He had a slight limp as he padded in the soft sand. He was an old, majestic man, surveying his domain, but resigned to the new order with his son in charge.
In November 2011, word reached us of his death.
