With his trusted camera slung across his shoulder, Morarka has captured the beauty and the mystery of the wild during his travels all over India and other parts of the world.

The book features some rare photographs, like that of the Siberian cranes that used to travel to India from the Arctic tundra of Russia every winter. Morarka captured the last pair sighted in Bharatpur in 1992.

Morarka also captured the power and dignity of the African elephant, the elegance of the giraffe, the majesty of the Asiatic lion and the quiet loneliness of the rhinoceros. But above all, he captured through his lens the passion and the beauty of the Indian tiger — his obsession, which is evident on the book’s cover. Roar not only features stunning visuals and the magic of the animal kingdom, but also a multi-faceted politician and his walk on the wild side. Want stories like this in your inbox?
