The Beauteous Forests
When one thinks of the Sunderbans, the picture that immediately comes to mind is that of a majestic tiger, slowly making its way through the thick foliage of the jungle. This huge forest cover of 2500 square kilometers is home to the world’s largest population of wild tigers.
The name Sunderbans is taken from ‘sunder’ meaning beautiful, and ‘ban’ meaning forest, and the place sure lives up to its name.
