All of you must be astonished reading the title of the article and thinking when and why did Pravas visit Nandankanan zoo without any announcement. Well readers no he has not visited Nandankanan but the zoo has found out its own Bahubali in its tiger cub. The cub was born to the tiger couple Meghna and Nandan. The latter was a wild one as it had strayed into the zoo in April, 2013 and also escaped the zoo in June 2013 by scaling a 18 feet high fence. Later on that same month facilitated by the zoo authority he managed to re-enter the zoo.
The Nandankanan Zoo authorities had kept boxes in front of the tiger enclosure asking visitors to suggest name for the tiger cub. Thanks to the craze of S. S. Rajamouli’s Bahubali movie most of the visitors suggested names like ‘Bahubali’ and ‘Debasena’ for the tiger cub.
As Nandan was a wild one, the authorities thought that the cub must have some wild streak in it, thus it was decided that the cub should be named ‘Bahubali’.
