This heartbreaking story is about as elephant Raju from India that had an incredibly rough life. After being poached from his mother he was thrown from one owner to another, until he was left living in terrible conditions with no shelter at night, being used as a beggars prop all day long. Raju survived only from passing tourists and sometimes had to eat plastic and paper while being chained 24 hours a day. A wildlife organisation SOS-UK could not stand the injustice and decided to save him in a daring midnight rescue operation.
The elephant, realizing he was being saved, started to cry: “It was incredibly emotional. We knew in our hearts he realised he was being freed” – claims Pooja Binepal, one of the rescuers in an interview with Presspeople. “Tears began to roll down Raju’s face. Some no doubt were due to the pain but he also seemed to sense that change was coming. He felt hope for the first time” – says another rescuer Kartick.
7 Things I Wish Parents Would Stop Teaching Their Children:
- That nudity is inherently sexual
- That people should be judged for their personal decisions
- That yelling solves problems
- That they are too young to be talking about the things they’re already starting to ask questions about
- That age correlates to importance
- That interacting with someone of the opposite sex is inherently romantic
- That the default for someone is straight and cisgender

I laugh, but it’s frighteningly true
I can’t stop laughing
Alright, these are kinda adorable…
Argh, just saw someone on FB selling a lion. Wtf? Stop stealing wild animals from their natural environments, and worst, selling them! This makes me so, so mad!
Guys, today I’m going on vacations, so I won’t be able to post anything for about two weeks. I’ll be back hopefully on August 1st, so wait for me, lovelies.
Also, I’m tagging this in “ichiruki” and “eremika” because those are the tags I use the most.
I wonder if when writers get a new idea, they think to themselves, “Hey, that’s a novel idea,” and chuckle every time.
I can’t speak for all of us, but I know I do.
