Indian elephants rescued from circuses and temples were treated to their favorite fruits and vegetables on World Elephant Day. It is no less than a curiosity to see elephants synonymous with giant and beauty.
विश्व हाथी दिवस पर सर्कस और मंदिरों से बचाए गए भारतीय हाथियों को उनके पसंदीदा फलों और सब्जियों की दावत दी गई। विशालकाय और सुंदरता के पर्याय हाथियों को देखना किसी कौतूहत से कम नहीं है।#WorldElephantDay2021 #WorldElephantDay @ParveenKaswan pic.twitter.com/CDYcH1ZJd2
