Gardener of the Forest

Gardener of the Forest
by Aneesh Sankarankutty

After the sunset, an elephant slowly emerged from the thick foliage towards the open swamp. Although I have been observing him regularly for almost a decade, I have never seen him in such a beautiful garden set by nature herself. Elephants are called Gardeners of the Forest as they redesign their gardens to make them better places for themselves as well as for the others.
