After a successful corporate career spanning 36 years, Jai now dons the mantle of a writer and a hobbyist nature and wildlife photographer sparked by a chance head-on encounter with a Royal Bengal tiger in the narrow winding ghat roads of Amarkantak.  Jai’s love for the wild is evident in his writings in the “The Vanishing Stripes”, book on wildlife, which he has co-authored. Jai aims to raise awareness of the plight not only of India’s wildlife but also the fragility of the last remaining wilderness that they call home as he is concerned over India’s fast depleting wilderness and fears that it may face a complete wipe out in the next two decades unless trend is reversed immediately.


Jai once again evinces his love for the wild in this book containing some very fascinating never read before anecdotes from the last century which was golden era of India’s wildlife.
