So, how many more examples do we need to keep bringing up to make the 'connection' in the human consciousness about where we need to go, and be?
You'll notice that one brainwashed, intellectual wetiko-enabler (obviously proud of the fact, or hopeful, that he won't be identified with the "backward castes") weighed in by saying, "there is no scientific evidence that wild elephants can understand what a human says. Mr Pradhan says the girl claims to talk to the herd in her own tribal language, but there is no basis for the elephants to follow what she says".
Maybe Indians, as well as the rest of the human race, should look closely at this term "backward" and all the implications thereof. This sickening mindset has continued for too many thousands of generations. Can't we just blow it off, for good, like now?
May every living being enjoy this pristine universe.
