    This is the second time during last two months three elephants were killed in this same route. Is there nobody responsible who can prevent it happening for the third time???

    If this seems no one care ... it probably is true. Our policies and efforts are all for destruction not only the country but also the treasures a country has to preserve.

    Railway dept Do not rest until you have the last elephant.

    They are resting, that is why the elephants are killed. They will continue to rest even after the last elephant is gone. We can then see them at the Ueno Zoo in Japan.
