NCERT Class 10th: Literature Reader English Ch 2 Mrs Packletide's Tiger


At the very beginning of the story , it is made clear that Mrs. Packletide had made up her mind to shoot a tiger and get her pictures published in newspapers to showoff to Loona Bimberton. She managed to shoot  the animal, a goat. The tiger died of heart-failure. She, however got her pictures with the dead tiger published in the newspapers. She also gifted a tiger claw brooch to Loona Bimberton. She also hosted a lunch party for Loona Bimberton  which the latter declined to attend. Thus Mrs. Packletide achieved what her heart desired.
