The photograph “The Alley Cat” was shot by Nayan Khanolkar. The leopard was seen roaming through the Aarey Milk Colony in suburban Mumbai. It took Nayan four months to capture this shot. The photograph highlights the relationship between the leopards living in the national park  and the Warli Tribe. Warli tribe accepts these big cats as a part of their life and culture even when the leopards are the most persecuted big cats in the world.
