Wow! One of my co-worker's dream is to see a tiger in the wild. This photo will sure excite him.

I am so annoyed that the people are allowed to harrass the tigers in droves!

Yes. Things could be better organised. Especially since this one was a mother of two cubs and she was jittery. (More details later with pics.) But, people should be allowed to catch a glimpse of nature as it is. Will prove a better incentive for conservation. I heard arguments that the tigers feel safer with tourists around (am no expert or am not even familiar with the topic). For eg, This one let the cubs move about when we were there and not as many vehicles as you see in the first pic. There too that tiger took a nap for some time in full view. But definitely the drivers should be better trained and taught to be less intrusive.
