‘Almost Blind’ Elephant Paraded In Kerala For Housewarming, Runs Amok At The Sound Of Crackers, Kills Two

It is unbelievable but true. Thechikottukavu Ramachandran, a tusker which has attained sort of a celebrity status in Kerala is totally blind in one eye and is gradually losing vision of its second eye. But it continues to be a ‘star attraction’ in temple festivals across Kerala.

While parading caparisoned elephants at temple festivals are common, using jumbos for other events are rare.

On Friday, Ramachandran was paraded as the star attraction at a housewarming, in Guruvayoor, where he was originally brought for the festival at Chombalakkumal temple at Kottappadi.
