This was shot in "Hathi Gaon". The boy was bathing and cleaning the Elephant. But the Elephant wanted to play and would not cooperate. It was a moment of a life time to see the small boy loving and cajoling the pachyderm to take his bath.
The estimated Rs 50 million project, when completed, will provide a natural park-like shelter for elephants with extensive plantation, a well-equipped veterinary hospital and proper sewerage facilities.
India's first and the world's third elephant village, the project had envisaged basic comforts for the pachyderms, besides creating several attractions for tourists. A museum, "shilpgram" and a cafeteria were also planned for visitors, who could opt to view the elephants from the "machans" (tree huts) a la Thailand style, but work on them is yet to start.
