For the Elephant Killed in Kerala, India – A Poem & an Illustration

Listen to this article

Some crimes towards nature, especially towards other lives, committed by humanity are so heinous it’s better not to even utter what happened and how.

One such incident happened in late May this year, in Kerala, India. The incident speaks volumes of the level of sadism possible in a human heart – It left me in shock. It broke my heart, it made me cry.

I wonder whether we will ever be forgiven by nature for not letting innocent, voice-less but spectacularly wonderful wild lives simply – live – peacefully?

Today is the world environment day, but honestly, I don’t think we have the luxury anymore to “celebrate” such days once in a year. It’s high time we remember the value, respect, and take care of our environment and the beautiful creatures we share it with, every single day of the year.

Here is what I would like to say to every single elephant left on this planet.

      If given a chance, nature can heal itself fast, and how! We all have seen that in last few months.

      Let’s keep her nurtured, because we are her part too.
