Tiger cub Sultan and his Ammi have a special friend they call Junglee Bina. “Bina is bold. She’s not afraid of the forest or the animals,” says little Sultan. Bina loves the jungle, and wanders there on her own for hours, taking photographs. It is these stunning photos that show us Sultan’s life in the Ranthambore forest, even as he tells us the story of a warm relationship between a woman and the wild. Images drawn from folk toys meld playfully with the photographs to tell the story of the local people – of their survival and concern for the forests, especially for the endangered tiger.

About the Contributors
Bina Kak was Minister of Forests and Environment in Rajasthan when she became passionate about wildlife. She turned into an avid photographer and, as the book shows, tigers and other animals have given her a no-holds-barred access into their world.
Kamla Bhasin’s writing for children, mostly in verse in Hindi, revolves around gender bias with a light touch – as in the endearing Malu Balu her first book for Tulika. She thought that Bina, her sister’s, photos could tell a great story about a tiger cub.
