In this episode of Nothing But The Truth, we discuss the return of cheetahs on the Indian soil.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the re-introduction of Cheetahs into the Indian wildlife on September 17, which is also his birthday, in Madhya Pradesh's Kuno National Park. It is the world’s first intercontinental translocation of a big carnivore in the wild.

A project at once ambitious and modest, carefully designed yet risk-prone, the cheetah steps will be monitored with avid interest by wildlife experts not just in India but worldwide. So, what are the pros and cons of such a magnificent experiment? And why was Kuno chosen?

India Today Group Editorial Director (Publishing) Raj Chengappa explains in this episode of Nothing But The Truth.
