A Love Story of Two elephants .
I Know Elephants are one of the most Lovely, Loving creatures on Earth. Working, reading on Animals, I very honestly and can proudly confess that I love animals like never before. Life without them must have been unimaginable. I was in awe of the Elephants that they can talk in their ultrasonic sounds. It is not possible for humans to hear all this. They have a Matriarchal Society where a mother Elephant leads and they have feelings as much as Humans for they mourn when they lost their loved ones and even a Programme on Animal shows Elephants coming all together at one of the burial sites of their fellow Elephant. It's so sweet and surprising. ( these information I got from my Dad as he once saw a programme on Elephant). Very amazing and astounding is they exactly came at the exact site exactly one year after the dead burial as if to show love, remembrance and concerns as we humans do. And some days back, I was quite excited, baffled, bemused as well as I read in the 'Times of India' that "Two Elephants eloped". It makes for an interesting read to all. The male Elephant was two years younger, a wild Elephant and the female Elephant a circus trained or, so urban bred, to be precise. The circus elephant was supposed to perform along with her 3 other companions. But, the show got cancelled and in the lull one of the eloped companion 's best pal, her companion was so sad, it grieved and it didn't even touch its food and was seen remorse in her sweet friend's absence. Since, its mating time for Elephants during these period of the year, the two Elephants have found their place- solitary space somewhere near water areas. These incident was reported from West Bengal. The circus Manager said that the Elephant was worth Rs 4 lakhs. For a while the Elephants are in Whirlwind Romance, but for how long will it remain so remains quite unsure, vague and doubtful. But, it was comical, amusing perhaps hysterical and side splitting reading it. It will really be a Mammoth Task separating the Elephants in Love, totally Out of Control.
