The Tiger King
What sort of hunt did the maharaja offer to organise for the high ranking british officer ? What trait of the officer does it reveal ?
The Maharaja offered to organise for the high ranking British officer any hunt other than that for a tiger. The officer could go on a boar hunt or a mouse hunt. He could even go on a mosquito hunt, but a tiger hunt was out of question.
Through this incident we come to know that the British officer was not much of an actual lover of hunting, rather he was an exhibitionist. He was not really interested in killing the tiger himself, instead wanted to pose for a photograph holding the gun and standing over the tiger’s carcass.
