Sundeep Bhutoria is a culturist, social activist, wildlife conservationist and tiger lover. He authored the book The Safari: A Diary on Ranthambore and adopted a royal Bengal tigress at the Alipore Zoological Garden in Kolkata.

According to the National Tiger Conservation Authority, at the turn of the 20th century, India was home to 40,000 tigers. Today their number in the wild does not exceed 4,000. This story echoes that of other animals, such as one-horned rhinos whose population declined to fewer than 2,400 in India.
