    The elephant looks sad. What do we gain by forcing this majestic beast to perform this silly tricks.

    Shameless acts against the principles of Buddhism. How many times the baby elephant was punished to train it to kneel and offer flowers? We need to move from the stone age.

    This is a good example of delusion and cruelty to animals. I think these ceremonies should not be given publicity.
