KANHA BHOORSINGH SCHOOL: An Education Initiative by Kanha National Park
Our forest guards risk their lives every day to ensure the safety of our jungle. Their children need a strong foundation to build a better future. The forest department of Kanha National Park took up the initiative to build a school for these children and for locals in the Mukki district of Kanha National Park, paving a revolutionary path for education in rural India. Our aim has been to raise awareness about the school and its effort to surface a niche for these children, while urging funds from sources who are willing to contribute for a child’s future. Situated at the heart of Mukki zone in Kanha National Park, Kanha Bhoorsingh School is named after the renowned mascot of the national park which is a Barasingha (Swamp Deer)”. Attracting children from 10 neighboring villages, the school is known for bringing children from the Baiga tribe to study alongside children of the forest officials, with a city school education standard.

Born and brought up in New Delhi, it was Sharad’s childhood passion to play cricket for India. While on a holiday in 1990, he saw his first tiger. Little did he know that this one sighting would immerse him into a realm where forests and tigers were all that mattered.
Sharad’s experiences as a wildlife photographer have inspired him to observe the tiger’s behavior for over 30 years and motivated him on his own journey as an entrepreneur. He started Nature Safari India Pvt Ltd, with a focus on “Conservation through Tourism.” to align himself to the mission of saving the regal species and repopulating them in India’s forests. In 2006, he set up one of India’s premier jungle lodges in Kanha National Park.
Sharad believes that there are many lessons to be learned from a tiger that can be applied successfully to leadership—both in business and in life. Here’s a new book by Sharad Vats on management and leadership skills to learn from a Tiger.
