Over thirty years of his work in several zoos and sanctuaries in India and Kenya the author shares his observations and experiences on the elephants including mahwat (elephant rider) ranging from elephants’ affection, intuition, fear, desire and struggle to lord the herd, to miserable death at the end of life.
