Question: What sort of hunts did the Maharaja offer to organise for the high-ranking British officer? What trait of the officer does it reveal? [CBSE Delhi 2013]

Answer: For the high ranking British officer, the maharaja was prepared to organise any other hunt, a boar hunt, he could go on a mouse hunt, even a mosquito hunt. But a tiger hunt was impossible. The officer was a big show-off. He actually did not wish to hunt or kill the tiger himself, he just wanted to be photographed with a gun in his hand, standing over a dead tiger.


Why was the Maharaja so anxious to kill the hundredth tiger?
