A Royal Bengal tiger was spotted at the Debrigarh wildlife sanctuary in Bargarh. The Divisional Forestry Officer (DFO) confirmed the same on Saturday from video footage that captured the tiger moving in the forest.

The tiger was reportedly spotted at the Debrigarh wildlife sanctuary located near Sambalpur’s Hirakud Dam. The tiger gender is male and it is an endangered species as its count is very low, reported Anshu Pragyan Das, DFO, Hirakud Wildlife Division.

The DFO expressed his joy that after several years a tiger was seen in the sanctuary. The team is even trying to track down whether or not the tiger has any female partners. Security around the sanctuary has been tightened to restrict the entry of unauthorized persons or poachers.

“It was seen while venturing near the safari area of ​​the sanctuary on December 1 and patrol staff captured video of the tiger as it crossed a road. This is the first time a tiger has entered the front door,” the DFO reported.

The DFO also ensured that special security measures are taken to ensure the protection of the tiger. As reported by the DFO, 12 teams have been hired to monitor the tiger.

“In addition to hiring a special team to monitor the tiger 24 hours a day, GIS technicians have been hired. A special patrol team is also engaged outside the sanctuary with metal detectors. We are emphasizing a special intelligence network to track and restrict unauthorized entry into the sanctuary. Immediate action will be taken against any illegal activity, the DFO said.

He further added: “We have yet to determine if the tiger was previously present at the wildlife sanctuary or if it came from Chhattisgarh. Last time, a royal Bengal tiger was seen in Debrigarh in 2018. We will track down the details soon if it ventured from any other landscape or was present here.”

In addition, security cameras have been installed at various locations in the sanctuary to track the feral cat.

In particular, the Debrigarh Wildlife Sanctuary spans Bargarh, near the Hirakud Dam, as well as the neighboring state. After 2018, not a single tiger was seen in the dense forest. The forestry department is on high alert as previous poachers remained quite active in the area.

Belgian girl weds Indian man as RK Narayan’s ‘Guide’ recreated in real life

Published

The legendary storyteller, Padma Vibhushan RK Narayan, would have been very proud if he had been alive today, because one of his great books ‘Guide’ has apparently come to life in real life.

It turns out that a 30-year-old tour guide, Ananth Raju, has married his 27-year-old Belgian girlfriend, Camille, in Hampi, Karnataka. And his love story was straight out of Narayan’s award-winning novel. The two were married on Friday according to Hindu rituals at the city’s Virupaksha temple.

The two reportedly met in Hampi just before the covid pandemic hit India in 2020. When Camille visited Hampi with her family, Raju not only took her around the city and gave her history-related information, but also he also arranged for her to stay at a good hotel.

Although Camille returned to Belgium with her family after her tour ended, the two kept in touch via social media. Gradually the friendship grew and both expressed their desire for marriage to their families, which both families accepted.

Camille was unable to come to India due to Covid restrictions but once the restrictions were lifted Camille came to Hampi. And both of them got married according to Hindu rituals.

Narayan’s ‘Guide’, which was published in 1958, has a similar plot in which a tour guide falls in love with a married woman who happened to be the wife of an archaeologist. The story took numerous twists and turns until the ‘guide’ ended up as a religious preacher in a temple.

A movie was made based on the novel which was released in 1965. The hit movie had Dev Anand and Wahida Rahman in the lead roles.
