Shikari Shambu is everything he doesn’t appear to be. Just like his name. Although known as Shikari, he is no hunter. He is a conservationist and a wildlife expert. People turn to him in times of crises. Whether it is about rescuing a wild animal or catching a dangerous criminal, this forest ranger is everybody’s go-to guy. But, lo and behold, Shambu is no brave heart. He is secretly petrified of animals and has no love for adventure. All he seeks is a good, fluffy pillow to sleep on and a day that ends with a satisfied tummy. But trouble always finds its way to Shambu and luck finds him a way out. And the combination of the two creates a hilarious mad-venture! Created by former Tinkle editor, Luis Fernandes, artist V.B. Halbe brought this classic Toon to life. Currently, Tinkle’s Art Director, Savio Mascarenhas, illustrates the series.
