Clicked on this day exactly five years ago, a majestic photograph of a family of tigers has resurfaced on the Internet, thanks of Indian Forest Services officer Parveen Kaswan. Mr Kaswan often shares photos and videos of Indian wildlife with informative comments on social media. This afternoon, he took to Twitter to share the photograph which shows four tiger cubs drinking water as their mother keeps watch.
The pic was clicked by wildlife and nature photographer Vinod Goel at the Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve in Maharashtra, which is the state's oldest and largest national park. He had shared it on Facebook in 2018, writing that the cubs had been three to four months old when the photo was taken on February 28, 2015.
Shared this afternoon on Twitter by Mr Kaswan, the shot is being widely praised. "The #family which drinks together, stays together. True for #tigers also," he wrote while posting the image on the microblogging platform. He added that pictures like these increased confidence in conservation efforts.
Take a look at it below:
