In the realm of news reporting, Gargi Rawat has been a stalwart for over two decades, gracing our screens as a senior news anchor and environment reporter with NDTV 24×7. Her educational journey took her through the esteemed Welham Girls’ School, Dehradun, and St. Stephen’s College of Delhi University. Throughout her illustrious career, Gargi has been a familiar face on the channel, contributing to numerous documentaries and environment-related programs.

Notably, she played a pivotal role in shaping the landscape of environmental awareness through her involvement in significant campaigns at NDTV. From ‘The Greenathon’ to ‘Save Our Tigers’, ‘Protecting India’s Coastline’, and the ‘Banega Swachh India’ initiative, Gargi has been at the forefront of impactful journalism.

Her accolades include widespread acclaim for her award-winning documentary series on the state of the river Ganga. Now, stepping into a new realm, Gargi Rawat unveils her debut book, “Tiger Season.”

In this literary debut, Gargi introduces us to Sunaina Joshi, a reporter grappling with the monotony of urban-centric, health-related reporting. Despite her daily grind, Sunaina yearns for a life in the great outdoors, especially reporting on wildlife and the environment – a passion that beckons less often than she desires.

The narrative takes an unexpected twist when Sunaina finds herself at the heart of a compelling opportunity – a campaign on tiger conservation featuring a Bollywood star attempting to rebuild his image post a drug scandal. As the television team immerses itself in the project, the storyline takes a dramatic turn, involving a local conflict and a heated incident with a tiger attacking a forest guard.

Controversy ensues when the decision to relocate the tiger to a zoo sparks protests and fresh outrage. Caught in the midst of converging controversies, Sunaina becomes an unwitting focal point. Complicating matters is her interaction with the arrogant owner of the resort where they are stationed. Yet, amid aggravation, a subtle attraction begins to brew.

The novel raises poignant questions about love, ethics, and professionalism in the face of passion. Can Sunaina navigate the complex web of emotions and remain true to her journalistic integrity? As Gargi Rawat ventures into the world of fiction, “Tiger Season” promises to be a gripping tale, blending the thrill of wildlife reporting with the complexities of human relationships.

Gargi Rawat, already celebrated for her impactful journalism, now invites readers to embark on a literary journey filled with suspense, passion, and the untamed spirit of the wild. “Tiger Season” is not just a debut novel; it’s a testament to Gargi’s storytelling prowess beyond the newsroom.
