He is a conservationist and a wildlife expert. People turn to him in times of crises. Whether it is for 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 our Art Director Savio Mascarenhas keeps the hat on Shikari Shambu.
