The elephant is the crowing glory of the jungles. This impressive creature graces our festivals, as well as religious and national functions. Tame and trained elephants are very useful to humans as they carry out their tasks with an amazing degree of understanding, though wild elephants can, at times, pose a serious problem. This book familiarises us with the one-homed Ganesha, the elephant in state of musth, the elephant with large tusks, the rogue elephant, and others. The Indian government launched a scheme in 1991-92 under which forests were reserved as national parks and sanctuaries to protect the animal from depleting in number. Printed Pages: 103.
