Laxman is a worker at the Gharial Rescue Centre and Hatchery of Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is devoted to the well-being of the wild gharials. In one instance, Laxman noticed a couple of Gharials’ eggs floating into the river Gerua. He understood that if the eggs were not saved, they will eventually sink into the water.

The commitment and dedication of Shukla are unquestionable. Even after being bitten twice by a leopard, he has decided to continue with his job till date. In the year 2006, Shukla heard the news of a leopard being hunted down by local villagers. When he arrived at the spot, he saw that the villagers had tied the leopard and were trying to harm it.

Shukla immediately went up to the villagers and asked to go away. In order to free the leopard, Pawan let go of all the ropes. The leopard was very much angry with all the teasing from the villagers.
