We'd asked you, dear readers, to share stories and photographs of the national animal.
Anup Nilawar has shared his story.
Rediff reader Anup Nilawar visited Kanha National Reserve in Madhya Pradesh in March 2016.
These are some of the photographs he clicked.
There were about 10 to 15 gypsies lined up on either sides of the road when we heard a roar.
She emerged from the bushes on to the road.
She walked from end to end as if she was walking on a ramp.
We spotted a tigress with her cubs. As she walked on the road, there was pin drop silence.
She even posed for a while before disappearing back into the bushes from where she came.
