The elephant is the crowing glory of the jungles. This impressive creature graces our festivals, as well as religious and national functions. Tame and trained elephants are very useful to humans as they carry out their tasks with an amazing degree of understanding, though wild elephants can, at times, pose a serious problem. This book familiarises us with the one-homed Ganesha, the elephant in state of musth, the elephant with large tusks, the rogue elephant, and others. The Indian government launched a scheme in 1991-92 under which forests were reserved as national parks and sanctuaries to protect the animal from depleting in number.

About the Author

Ramesh Bedi (late), born at Kalabagh (now in Pakistan), had his education as a resident of the jungle-based Gurukul Kangri University where he loved walking and studying wild animals. The elephant, Lord of the Jungle, held a particular fascination for him. After completing his education he ruturned to Lahore but the partition of the country in 1947, forced him to seek refuge at Haridwar. Here he studied the elephant in its many moods - in a state of musth; engaged in battle with another to win the favour of a female elephant, mating, trumpeting or stamping through the valley.
