Ranthambore National Park It is now a common sight in the Ranthambore National Park  -- three charismatic  tiger cubs  freely  roaming  with  their  mother. Ranthambhore is a world renowned tiger park near Jaipur in Rajasthan.

The mother is named  Noon. The three female cubs are the third litter of Noon. All the four roam freely, unmindful of visitors to the sanctuary. They look like domesticated cats.

 In Ranthambhore, it is an advantage to see wild tigers at close quarters. The tigers are accustomed very much to the presence of human visitors to the wild life sanctuary.

  "Over the passage of time, the tigers have been tolerating human presence, as the people are not trouble shooters but watch and enjoy them," says Aditya Dicky  Singh, a prominent  wild life photographer, who has contributed several photos to Mathrubhumi  Yathra magazine.

Singh had close contact with Noon and the cubs first time in November last year. The cubs are now one-years-old.  Singh saw the cubs when they were three-months-old. The cubs will stick to their mother for nearly one more year before separating. Before separating, they will learn to hunt and eke out a living.

"The cubs are very sporty. They usually pose for the camera," says Singh.
