“No…. It’s crocodile…. In Bengali we call it like… Jole Kumir Dangay Bagh… Means Crocodile in the Water, Tiger on the Bank,” wrote an Instagram user. “Reminds me of Sundarbans, the land is ruled by RBT (Royal Bengal Tiger), and the waters by Crocodiles. I guess that’s the inspiration behind this piece,” posted another. “This translates to a Bengali idiom/saying : ‘Jolay Kumir Daangay Baagh’ – translates to: There is crocodile in the water and tiger on the shore. Meaning where will you go,” commented a third.
