Bahubali in Nandankanan:  1 of 7 tiger cubs named after Magnum opus

Bhubaneswar: The Bahubali fever has gripped people worldwide  so much that even officials of Nandankanan Zoological Park here named one of the seven one-year old tiger cubs  as ‘Bahubali’ today in a naming ceremony.

The other six tiger cubs at the zoo including three females were named as Sahil, Adyasa, Vicky, Chinu, Mousumi and Kundan.

Around a year ago, the seven cubs were born to female tigresses Bijaya, Megha and Sneha at Nandankanan.

The zoo authorities have decided to keep the cubs of Bijaya and Megha in the enclosures to let visitors see the baby big cats while cubs of Sneha will be kept at the enclosures later.

The State’s Forest and Environment minister Bijayshree Routray also visited the zoological park today to be part of the naming ceremony.
