As a kid, my favorite thing in summer holidays was to bury myself in the coolest room in our house, reading and re-reading my dad's stash of old Reader's Digests. There was even a hindi version of Reader's Digest for a while, optimistically titled 'Sarvottam', 'the best'.
Sarvottam used a delightful blend of formal Hindi grammar and American humor, and I instantly fell in love. Reader's Digest was where I read about Christian. Christian was a lion cub purchased by John Rendall and Anthony Bourke from Harrods of London in 1969 and ultimately reintroduced to the wild.
Fancy finding him on You Tube, twenty years later.
