Heartbreaking photos of a calf crying and guarding his dead mother surfaced on the social media last month. The video showed a baby elephant wailing for its dead mother and refusing to leave her side.
As per the news the elephant was walking along with her baby in Southern India, when she collapsed.
She died immediately, but her son prodded his mother with his hooves, tried waking her up with his trunk and chased away anyone who came near her in a desperate attempt to awaken her.!
This piece of heart breaking news made me ponder about the fierce love a child possesses for one’s mother and vice versa too. All animals are God’s creation and here the love of the calf for his mother in the way he is protecting her, trying to wake her up is love in the purest form. I am sure the calf is too young to know what death is. What all thoughts , feelings he might be undergoing!!
The very scene made me shed a tear.
