Deep inside a jungle in India, a tiger cub is born! The jungle folk calls him Bobby – the son of Bagha and Ruby. Bagha is the majestic territorial male who is held in awe by one and all, and Ruby is the fearless young female who is extremely protective of her cub.

She would need to patiently teach him all the skills he would need to establish himself as their worthy successor. But for now, Bobby is busy playing with his friends Dingu – the baby monkey, Sunehari – the giant Indian squirrel, and Chiu – the sunbird, exploring his world and getting to know its denizens.

Or will his home be devastated by human greed guised as development? Or his kill poisoned by angry villagers seeking revenge for their cattle he killed as it strayed into his territory? Or his bones land up in a concoction in some distant country?
