Royal Bengal tiger is very ferocious as we know all but we may have no knowledge about any real attack by this tiger. Do you know the story of any attack by the tiger? If a tiger aims to attack anyone, they will never come back from their goal ever. The tiger is ready to face any danger but will not come back from its aim which should be the same aim to the human being to progress in life.


Sundarbanis the largest mangrove forest in the world. It has different types of animals including the most dangerous Royal Bengal tigers. This forest is in the coastal area of the Bay of Bengal. There are a lot of small rivers, creeks, brooks, and canals in and around this forest. It is in the South-Western side of Bangladesh. There are residential areas also beside the forest. This people use to live there and they also dependent to this forest for their earnings and economical support as it is very much resourceful for many things and raw materials. For this reason, people use to go to this forest continuously. But the most dangerous thing is the ecosystem of this forest for having the Royal Bengal tiger to secure it.

Story Begins............

It was a sunny morning. The working people wake up early in the morning with the sweet chirping sounds of the birds. From very early of the morning , the life of the coastal area's people start with their busyness. Their work is to go to the Sundarban and be busy with their risky life to collect Golpata for shedding houses, collecting honey, woods, animal's skins and so on. Each and every day they need to be uncertain about their life. They use to think that the day could be the last day of their life. However, they don't have nothing to do as they are totally dependent on this forest for their earning. Being ready in the early of the morning they take farewell from their family and friends as their is no certainty of their lives.


There was a man who used to go for collecting honey in the forest by taking his son with him. His wife used to be anxious everyday for her husband and son. One day the son and father being prepared to go Sundarban, they took farewell from everyone. They use to go there by a small boat to the opposite side of a small river which is between the forest and the residential area of Bangladesh.

Things they keep with them...

The honey collectors use normal home made instrument to collect honey from the honey hives in the Sundarban. The father and son also kept same type of instrument. Their instruments were chopper, knife, net, honey pot, fire box to create smoke for moving the bees from the hives and so on. They also kept their lunch in their boat. They were quite happy as the weather was very charming. Finally, they started their journey to the Sundarban to collect honey.


As the weather was very good, the father and son they went to the forest after passing some small canals and creeks. They went inside of the forest to search honey hives and collect honey. It was the noon time, they have collected enough honey and it was the time to take rest and to have lunch. There were slight smiling on their face. They thought they will have meal in full appetite. For this reason, came back to their small boat to have meal. They became fresh and took their meal and about to have it at that moment the most unpleasant thing happened in their life. They heard a tiger's sound near them. At that time they remembered about their past generation. They also use to work in the forest and most of them became the food for the tiger. However, they had nothing to do rather coming to this forest as they were totally dependent on this.

Fighting against tiger........

When they heard the tiger's sound, they tried to see around them and kept their boat five or six feet away from the bank and started to eat. The Royal Bengal tiger is the most ferocious tiger in the world, they knew how to attack their prey and how to cheat the sight of their prey. At the bank, there were full of trees and long grasses. It was easy for tiger to come at the bank by hiding itself. When the father and son were having their meal, the tiger came near to them at the bank and made its aim towards the father of the son.

Tiger's aim.....

It is proved that if a tiger aimed anyone it will not change its aim whatever the difficulties come. The tiger by seeing them in the boat, it made a plan to jumped on them and catch the father as its prey. As it made a plan, it jumped on the boat. Alas! the aim of the tiger felt down in the water for the shaking of the boat for tiger's jump. The son firstly became very scared but after few moments he controlled himself and observed that the tiger was not looking at him. The tiger kept its claws up on the water and waiting for the father. When the father will come up from under water, it will catch the father. The son understood it and he started to hit the tiger but it was not looking at him it was just waiting for the father. The son became very scared and started to beat the tiger more forcefully with whatever he got near his hand but it didn't move from the aim.
This incident showed us about the aim of a tiger. If a tiger decided to catch someone, it will not come back from it's aim. It could attack the son easily as the son was beside of it and he climbed on its back to save his father. As the tiger decided to catch the father it didn't come back from its aim and the most tragic thing happened at the moment when the father just came up from under water.

Tiger's aim shuold be human's goal.....

As the tiger was fixed on its aim and became successful. However it was a very tragic incident but it also taught us one thing which is very important in our life. The lesson of this story is to be constant on one's goal to be successful in life. Indeed, the true aim can change the life of anyone, we all should have good aim and constant mind and work to be an idol for the people.

There are many stories of tigers including royal bengal tigers attacking man,

Man-eaters have been a recurrent problem for India, especially in Kumaon, Garhwal and the Sundarbans mangrove swamps of Bengal. Here some healthy tigers have been known to hunt humans.

hmm...tigers are not attacking people only in forest recently. For the imbalance of ecosystem, now they are not having their food properly and coming to the residential areas and attacking people. Its became a big problem in Bangladesh also.

It is indeed a tough situation for man and animal - each trying to beat the hunger pangs. I only hope we do not have to encroach on their turf - siva
