  • Description

    The Lonely Tiger, authored by Hugh Allen, is one of the best books written on hunting, living in a remote village, farming and the retired life of a man from the British Armed Forces.

    Summary of the Book

    Hugh Allen decided to live in India and chose an estate in Mandhikera, a remote village in the central part of the country. He had previously served in the British Armed Forces at the end of the Second World War. He started farming in a piece of land, but had to face many issues from the native villagers, and also leopards, bears, monkeys and tigers and other wild animals. This book chronicles his encounters with these wild and beautiful creatures, and how the adventures enriched his retired life. His narration is filled with thrilling events that occur in the forests and thumps with energy. It also pours light on issues like the fast receding number of tigers and poignantly explains the reality and what measures could be taken to preserve the exotic wild life. The author also describes how he fell in love with a country as diverse as India.

    About Hugh Allen

    Hugh Allen was wounded with a bad head injury while he was serving in the British Armed Forces towards the end of the Second World War. He was then hospitalized in India, after which he was fascinated by the nation and its people, its rich and exotic natural resources and wild life. He decided stay back in India and started farming in an obscure village, far from civilization. The Lonely Tiger is a must read, which is pretty much his own story that revolves around various situations in India.

    A great book

    I had read a bad Bengali translation. Now I find that the original book is vastly better as a read. Of course, Allen was a very special person - An Englishman who came and settled in India after independence!!

    TALE TELL TAIL n the TIGER

    THE TALE
    Read it's review in a newspaper and decided to go for it. This book will take you deep inside the jungles of central India. One thing I like most in the books of this genre is that you can feel the wilderness around you.

    TELL (or how Hugh Allen told it)
    Though not as thrilling as Corbett's or Anderson's ordeals, but still a good read. Those were the days when strolling through the jungle you can meet a tiger. Those days are gone, so are the writers of the stature of Corbett, Anders...

    Flipkart Logistics issue

    We ordered the Lonely tiger on flipkart 20 days back. It was suppose to be delivered in ten days but after 15 days flipkart cancelled the order citing unavailability of the product. However the website shows that the book is available for dispatch.So kindly sort this anomaly and stop fooling the customers.
