In summer, the inexorable heat literally saps life out of you. Gradually, profuse sweating induces mild delirium. And soon enough, you start seeing stripes everywhere. Was it a tiger or just some sun charred leaves under dappled shade? Your eyes strain, your throat gets parched and starts constricting, you grow languorous. A screech resounds from the forest- a chital senses danger. The direction screened by a wall of forest. As you wait, ears perked, anticipation decays into boredom. Then when you least expect it, she arrives!
