Today there was a cultural program in my school. As I entered the school gate I saw an elephant standing in the parking lot with its large trunk eating coconut leaves. At first glance itself the elephant looked very friendly and kind. At times it did force air through its large trunk which gave it a crazy look.
The program started with a game of tug of war. This game is played by two teams to check their strength where the ends of a thick rope (vadam) is given to both teams. Once the whistle is blown both the teams starts to pull the rope to their side. Like wise here the game was played between the students and the elephant. Very exiting to hear isn’t it?
The game started. I sat near by with my eyes glued on the elephant. Suddenly the elephant left the rope and turned to my side and made a loud cry. Someone from the back shouted “THE ELEPHANT IS VIOLENT”. Many started running desperately including the principal, the head of the school which caused much more confusion among all. Then my friend too pulled me and ran.
The elephant looked so miserable and sad. Actually nothing had happened only a word from someone had caused such a big fuss.
“ We must not believe things blindly” this is what to learn .
gosh ! poor ELEPHANT…………
