Right from our childhood we have been seeing presence of elephants in one form or the other. Initially as a God elephant as Lord Ganesha. Then it was seen at every CIRCUS which use to move from one town to another. Then at the gates of a marriage function at a high end marriage function. In the State of Rajasthan it is used as a means of transport for reaching to the gates of a Fort. Then of course in South India these are the high lights of any function at any temple or Dussera at Mysore ….All these elephants used for domesticated use were caught from the wild. How they were separated from their herd and how they were disciplined to follow the command of the mahout is a sad story. They were treated badly as they were not given anything to eat and sometimes beaten up . The situation has not changed much even now when they are in captivity.
