Unity among Elephants

Received this link via email. It showcases how a group of female Elephants cooperate in order to save a drowning baby. Watching this video is really heart-warming. It’s amazing how the herd of elephants emphasize on the principle 'united we stand, divided we fall'. These mighty creatures are known to move in herds and are always protective about their young ones. They stress on community living and harmony.

A friend of mine had also narrated how a group of elephants had shielded their calf while crossing a track. And another instance where an elephant had got stuck on a railway track. The rest of the herd tried to rescue it and died in vain. :( It was a tragic moment for all of them as they met with their end.

However one can learn such lessons from the fauna kingdom on how to develop unity and cooperation. In today’s busy world, when a fellow human is lying hurt on the pavement, others just stop and stare thinking the other person will come to his/her rescue. It’s time we all joined hands to aid our fellow humans if we just pause to think for a second that they might have a family awaiting their arrival back home.

Yes,it was a touching movie.The dumb creatures have all the human emotions but there is greater harmony amongst them than human species ruled by its greed and cunning.
