2012-09-07: Chaitra, who has a 22-month-old calf in Bandipur, is now being readied. "We'll start the separation next week," Dr DN Nagaraj, the vet attached to Bandipur Tiger Reserve, said. Dr Nagaraj, who has looked after Dasara jumbos for a decade, said the mother takes time to adjust because of intimacy with the calf.
