Haunting Image

                 A news story that will haunt me for ever is the virtual suicide of five elephants in a bid to save two calves.  The calves had strayed onto a railway track in a densely forested area in north West Bengal.  As a speeding goods train approached, the elder ones crowded around the stricken calves.  They were either unaware of the impending danger, or cared little about its consequences.  All that they wanted, was to protect the calves, even if it meant risking own lives. 
                    How many of us the superior human beings that we are, would have acted so spontaneously and selflessly?
