Subject: The elephant in our home’s backyard- Abhimanyu enjoyed the hospitality of his hosts and neighbours during his overnight stay there.

Good old days people used to say alive or dead, an elephant is worth 12,000.
One can spend hours watching an elephant, irrespective of one's own age or that of the animal.
This week, in Kerala, when a mahout was trying to make his elephant lie down while giving the animal a bath, he got trapped under the elephant and died. It's reported that when he came to know and the body was taken away, the sad elephant stood guarding the chappals of the mahaut.
