Maya Kali

I am Maya Kali. My name “Maya” is a nepali word which means love and affection. I was born on August 15 1993. This year I became 29 years old. I am married and have been pregnant for 12 months but sadly my husband has already left me and went back to the jungle. He is a wild Elephant and his name is “Gobinda”. Maybe thats why nowadays I feel little irritated towards other humans and also I am over protective of my coming child so I try to stay away from humans as much as possible. I was living a complicated life in India.

I was used for carrying people, wood and other heavy loads. I was also deprived from my mother’s milk when I was a young girl as I was separated from my mother at young age and so I have calcium deficiency and due to it my bones have been weak and my legs are not straight and they have bend in the wrong direction permanently. I was fortunate to be brought to Sapana Village Lodge by the owner of the Lodge Mr. Dhruba Giri. It has been 2 years since I started living in Sapana Village Lodge. The person who takes care of me at Sapana Village Lodge is named “Hemlaal”. I like it a lot here the greeneries, the birds, the trees and everyone around me are friendly to me. It is very relaxing and peaceful in here. I have a lot of friends here who share the similar past of cruelty and domination, but that hasn’t stopped us from living a joyous and wonderful life at Sapana Village Lodge. Here we graze together and bathe together. We also get to interact with our human friends from the Lodge. If we ever get bored playing with ourselves. I am very thankful to Mr. Dhruba Giri, Lena, Donna and their organizations for bringing me here and giving me a new life in a such a wonderful place. You can see me lay peacefully at my shelter in Sapana Village Lodge and you may even get a chance to see my new born in the distant future when we meet till then I will be waiting for you happily at Sapana Lodge.
