This is the story of four friends (Sahil, Arushi, Tanu, Arjun) who plan to visit Sundarban National Park for research on tigers. It was 22nd December 2018, Saturday they all get together as earlier they were college friends and working at the same location New Delhi, India. Sahil was excited and say “It is a good time to visit over there and have a get together meeting with tigers”. Tanu “Yes I also heard about Sundarban in the movie Roar but I don’t think it will be good to visit there without any safety”. Arushi “Don’t think much let’s move on guys”. They booked their flight tickets for next Sunday.
On 30th December 2018, their flight landed to Kolkata, West Bengal, India in the morning around 4:00 am and it is somewhat around 100km distance from Kolkata to Sundarban National Park, they already booked a taxi so after packing some foods at the airport they started their journey. When reached over there they got a new information that Sundarban can only be accessed by boat.
Sahil “If not car then boat is ok for us”. Travelling by boat where they seen a jungle aside with huge sounds of tigers. Arjun told the boatman “Take a side as we need to see this beautiful jungle by walk”. Boatman replied “Please don’t visit at the depth of the jungle”. They came some distance inside of the jungle and seen a white tiger is sleeping. Suddenly, Sahil throws a stone on the tiger’s head. The tigress get up and looking at them. One man came with fire stick, the tigress get afraid and ran from that place.
The man told them “It was good for you all that tigress is not a man-eater”. Sahil asked “Who are you and how you can come here?”. Man replied “My name is Feluda and I am the private investigator basically I came here form Kolkata for searching the murderer”. Arjun replied “From Kolkata to here”. Feluda “Yes one of our investigating officer told me that the person whom you are searching you may find somewhere near to Sundarban National Park”.
Arushi told Sahil “We came here for research and taking some pictures of tiger not to hit them”. Tanu “Very nice to meet you Mr.Feluda can you please help us for our research”. Feluda “As you people came for research, remember one thing it will be better if you leave this place before evening”. Feluda gave the map of Sundarban National Park and left the place as he was in hurry for his investigation.
They follow the map after walking some distance they find a big foot shape on the ground. By judging the shape, the shape is too big which is not the tiger’s foot shape. Suddenly when Arushi turned seen a tall man of 13ft covering face with black clothes. They all are getting scared and run from that place and the time was 6:30pm. Tanu gets irritate and say “Now it is already 6:30pm the gate has been closed”. In a moment, they even lost the map provided by Feluda. Time was around 8:00pm in the night, they all are getting tired unfortunately they heard some supernatural sound and again seen that tall man. In a while, Feluda came over there and ask them “What happen and where does that sounds came from?”. Sahil replied “You are still here Mr.Feluda see our situation is worst and there maybe presence of ghost”. Feluda replied “Whether it is ghost or something else that we need to see”. After an hour, Feluda finds a tall man who put fire into the jungle. Feluda came over there and say “Hey stop destroying the jungle and I know you are the person whom I am searching for please surrender yourself”.
The tall man tries to attack Feluda in a while a group of tigers came over there as they find something wrong happen in the jungle. The tiger jumped on the tall man while Feluda just fires his gun. The tigers gets afraid and left the place but that man get arrested.
Feluda say goodbye to all of them. Tanu asked “But where you go now right now the gate is closed”. Feluda replied “If I came from that gate it become impossible for me to catch the murderer as he might get inform that someone searches him anyways do one thing very near to this park there is one guest house you people can stay over there”. In the next morning 1st January 2019, they left the place and way towards Delhi.
Moral: Whenever you are in travel always take care of your safety and don’t try those things which become dangerous.
