Our relentless pursuit of stories exploring human-wildlife relationships recently took us to Yellapura in the Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka. This film introduces you to Huliyappa, the deified tiger with whose worship begins Deepavali, the Festival of Lights. We are deeply grateful for everyone who participated in this film and gave us permission to understand their relationship with the tiger.
So… meet Huliyappa!
