Born and grown up in a rural environment, Basappanavar comes from a middle-class agriculturist-family. As a boy of four years, he still recollects, as green memory, of having escaped by a whisker’s distance, chased by a striped lady – a tigress nurturing her cubs in his father’s sugarcane fields.  He was lucky to have been born at a time, when tiger, the most elusive, magnificent and graceful predator on earth, could still be encountered around his village.
