There’s nothing quite like mother’s love. More so in the lion kingdom where child rearing is almost exclusively a mother’s domain. Male lions often kill cubs sired by the previous leader when they take over a pride. Even when their own male cubs grow up, they get kicked out. In such a scenario, a lion from Bedhia village of Gir-Somnath district is rewriting parenting rules in the last abode of Asiatic lions in the world.

The lion christened as ‘Bedhia Nar’ has single-handedly raised three cubs. The cubs were barely three months old when their mother got electrocuted while entering a farm. The pride did not have any other lioness, and Bedhia Nar took over the job. The cubs are now aged two.Click Here: nrl league jerseys
