Free Durga - an Elephant's cry!
I am a resident of Vidyaranyapura, Bengaluru, Karnataka but not a proud one as I consiously feel cursed by the painful rumbles and whimpering trumpets of an Elephant housed across my residence.
This Elephant Durga was gifted to an infamous temple Durgaparameshwari Temple, Vidyaranyapura by some politically influenced person(unknown) 20+ years ago and Durga has been a resident ever since.
As per my understanding, several attempts have been made to rehabilitate her(Durga) but with no success till date.
All/most of the Elite animal rescue organizations across the country are aware of her plight and are turning a blind eye towards this issue.
Durga spends most of her life chained up and locked in a 30x40 Shed and has hardly seen the day light except for her walks to the temple and back during the festivals.
The mahout is addicted to the city life and follows a strict regime of allowing rich people to visit and feed the Elephant in it's confinement but take it for walks like a few years ago.
We humans have conquered everything but our minds!! Durga needs freedom and not our pampering from across the barricade. Animals belong in the nature, especially the wild ones. Domesticating a wild animal and depriving it of it's natural habitat are two different things by itself and is nothing short of cruelty towards animals and nature.
I am just an ordinary guy doing my bit to help rehabilitate an animal which is constantly in pain and far away from it's natural habitat. Let's grow some conscience and show Durga to the freedom she deserves.
I have been warned by my well wishers that this is a sensitive matter and might disturb a few politicians, I believe Politicians have a heart too and I am sure they will use their power to free Durga this time around.
