Daulat Singh Shaktawat

A few years ago, locals in a Rajasthan village summoned Daulat Singh Shaktawat, a forest-department officer, to a farm where they had spotted a tiger. While Shaktawat was tracking the animal on foot, it pounced on him, biting his arm and gouging out an eye. Shaktawat, who survived and eventually returned to duty, narrates this incident in vivid detail in his book.
