An afraid Chinkara or Indian Gazelle cried for help in the deep recesses of a cold winter night in the desert. Shaitan Singh Bishnoi could not contain himself and rushed out to his rescue. Shaitan opposed the hunters but they shot him dead.  His wife, Pushpa, also belongs to the Bishnoi community wherein people lay down their lives to save an innocent animal or tree. She adopts a baby chinkara and names him “Kishan”, hence carrying forward the legacy of her husband Late Shaitan Singh Bishnoi.
