“ हे निषाद, तुम अनंत वर्षों तक प्रतिष्ठा प्राप्त न कर सको, क्योंकि तुमने क्रौंच पक्षियों के जोड़े में से कामभावना से ग्रस्त एक का वध कर डाला है ।” – वाल्मीकि जो घटना केरल में हुई वो बहुत दुखद और शर्मसार करने वाला थी। इंसान के छल-कपाट और निर्दयता का एक उदाहरण जो बिना संकोच के एक गर्भवती हथिनी की हत्या कर देता है। इंसान के इस खोखले अस्तित्व पर आज यह धरती माँ भी रोती होगी। #elephant #keralaelephant
