This interesting story was shared by Mr. Ajai Singh of Maksudpur

Rewa is generally associated with white tiger. Little known that quite a number were taken in Bihar - Gaya and some in other districts of Bihar.

Maharaj Kumar Fateh singh -18 years old- with his tiger - turned out to be white. In the Tikari jungles with Mr. & Mrs Lee. Mr. Lee, late of Rolls Royce, kept oversight over the Tikari Maharaja's motorcars.

An interesting connection with this white tiger is the 16RH Cadillac. HH Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala was a guest at the Bhalwa shooting box of the Maharaja of Tikari when he saw the MK's white tiger.

HH had not seen a white tiger before, and admired the trophy. His host persuaded his young son to gift the tiger to HH. The Patiala Maharaja took it back to Patiala and in return sent the 16 cylinder right hand drive Cadillac to the young MK
