The protagonist of "The Tiger In The Tunnel" is BALDEO. Baldeo is a tribal and works as a khalasi.He is an extremely brave person bcoz he had the courage to fight with a tiger alone with his only weapon, a small axe. He is also a carring father bcoz when he sees the tiger, the first thought which came into his mind was about his son, Tembu, who was sleeping alone in a hut. Baldeo is also a hardworking man. Despite the cold outside his hut, he wakes up and leaves the warm corner of his hut to perform his duty.
Baldeo is a tribal. He owned some small rice fields but they were not enough to support his family. So he considered himself to be lucky to have got the job of khalasi at the station. He was very good at killing wild animals with his axe. He was also very brave. He cared for his family. He has a sense of duty too. After lighting the lamp he could have gone back, but he did not do so.
Baldeo the watchman was responsible for signaling whether or not the tunnel was clear of obstruction, at night it was his duty to see that the lamp was burning, and that the overland mail passed through safely. Tembu, the boy lay in the station. They lived in a small tribal village on the outskirts of the forest, about three miles from the station. Their small rice fields did not provide them with more than a bare living, and Baldeo considered himself lucky to have got the job of Khalasi at this small wayside signal stop.
