Story 3: I had the privilege of growing up with an elephant. For three years i had been with 1 in my village. We had mahavat who took care of him but i got to ride many times . MY grandfather rode him to get my grandmother after marriage. I could only image how royal
it would have been. His name was bholu and if u touch his trunk 3 times.. he will ask for food😄..he was 42 and old but could lift me to his head and put me back down..Unfortunately I dnt have any image of him..elephants are mischievous and hard to keep. he looked smwat like this
He ate alot ...i mean alot alot....the place he was kept at was called hathikhana..... Once in a week he used to get this royal massage treatment near the pond. I also washed him but my hand could barely scratch his skin...

PS:all images r from internet
special brush were used to clean...smtimes coconut peels..He died when i was 11 at age of 45...recent elephant cruelty reminds me of matter what the size of an animal...all of them will recognize ur love, empathy and compassion...So love then unconditionally #dowatulove
