Photographer Aditya Singh quit his job, left Delhi and moved to Sawai Madhopur city, in Rajasthan, just outside Ranthambore Tiger Reserve. He moved here in order to be closer to nature. His wife, Poonam Singh, opened a tourist resort there to earn their living. And over the past 20 years, the Singh's has bought roughly 35 acres of land which shares its boundary with Ranthambore tiger reserve and left it completely undisturbed.

Now, the land is flourishing as it's covered in a lush greenery and is frequented occupied by wild animals, including tigers, throughout the year.

What inspired this new way of living? Poonam Signh tells Quartz India, "My first sighting was a tigress with three cubs on a hill. It was magical. At the end of the trip, I just asked him if we can move to Ranthambore. He wanted it, too, and within months we moved. As far as this land is concerned, it was a dream that we both saw and achieved together to have our own area of wilderness."

The future goal? To continue buying more land to expand the forest even further, and to inspire others to follow suit. 

How incredible is that? The Singh's are our heroes!
