Amidst man-animal conflict, a video of people getting emotional and bursting into tears following the death of an elephant named Thiruvambadi Sivasundar has gone viral in Kerala. The elephant had been undergoing treatment for impaction (becoming impacted, especially of faeces in the intestine) for the past two months and breathed its last on March 11 failing to respond to treatment. Notably, Thiruvambadi Sivasundar was one of the main attractions of the Thrissur Pooram festival for the past 15 years. Thousands of people including ministers paid homage to Thiruvambadi Sivasundar, thereby making it a grand and fitting farewell.
