The lost lion cub in the forest after the fight between the the lion prides at Sasan Gir Forest. We were witness to this battle. This cub was crying for his mother after the brawl !

"The Lost Child" by Mulk Raj Anand is all about the thrilling as well as frightful experiences of a small child who accompanies his parents to a village fair on the occasion of spring festival. He was denied whatever he wanted to have & finally he gets lost in the fair.

A kind person takes pity on the child and tries to console and comfort him. Just to divert his mind he offers him all of his favorite things he desired most to have previously but all of a sudden they all lose significance for the child.

Constantly he goes on crying, I want my mother I want my father. This proves that nothing is of more importance for the child than the protective and caring shelter of his parents.

Ok like so NOW i am crying with my morning coffee. How true is that...and to witness this lost lion cub..did he find his family? I am sure he did. Just like we all hopefully find our way

Hello Subhash

I am happy that he did find his mother,
love the blurred background effect
with the lion cub in focus, TFS


Dear Subhash
This sad story is told by your heart warming image:
LOST indeed!

The stunning background surrounds the juvenile and appears to envelop the lost, bereaved animal

Thank you very much for contributing this image, and I have added it to my new theme "Juveniles"

Greeting from the Tzaneen Dam, Limpopo
