Death – Obituary

Cuttack: Foster mother of tigress Khairi, Nihar Nalini Swain, passed away at the age of 88 in Ashirvad Old Age Home at Siddheswar Sahi in Cuttack on Wednesday.

She died of natural causes, informed one of Swain’s relatives.

In 1974, an abandoned female tiger cub was found by the natives of Similipal in Odisha’s Mayurbhanj. She was brought by the natives to Saroj Raj Choudhury, the Director of Simlipal Forest Reserve.

Choudhury took the charge of that cub without any hesitation. Mr Choudhury and his wife, Nihar Nalini nursed the cub as a foster parent.

They also named it as Khairi as the cub was recovered from the bank of river Khairi. She grew very fast due to proper care and nourishment with dieting and medical attainment.

Nihar Nalini, who was spending her life at the old-age ashram, had not forgotten Khairi till her last breath, who had become an inseparable part of her family.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
