SHIKAR, the Hindostani term for sport, in the sense of shooting and hunting. The word is in universal use by Anglo-Indians for the pursuit of large game, such as tiger-shooting and pigsticking. The shikari is either the native expert, who marks the game for the sportsman, or else the European sportsman himself.
