Sirjana Kali

Srijana Kali

I am Srijana Kali. I was born on 1982 april 3rd. I don’t know how my name is originated and how I was named but living with humans I got to know the meaning of Srijana which is to Develop something new, maybe that’s why I gave birth to a child and started a new life. I am very happy and proud to be a mother of such a wonderful child. I want to share with you how I gave birth to such a wonderful child. One day an old friend came from far away to visit me at the place I live in. We had a special bond since childhood we were friends, we lived and played together. Both our mom were wild Elephants. But later when I grew up I was captured and domesticated by people, trained by them for carrying people on my back and taking on long safari. My friend on the other hand was wild living freely in jungle….

Maya Kali

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……………
