The Queen in Exile- Machli

Seen after a year, Machli, the once glamorous and most photographed tiger ever made me happy and sad at the same time. Happy to have spotted her, but her condition made my heart weak. Strong and proud in her prime, she was said to be on the periphery of the park barely living. Now back in the park, she looked weak, blind in her left eye, trying to find a cold, comfortable spot to rest. I had seen her make a kill in her prime, her determination had amused me then. I decided to wait at the place where she was spotted as most vehicles passed by having lost interest in the old, forgotten star tiger, towards places with new, younger tigers. She after sometime walked towards our vehicle and stood staring, having no clue where to head.
