While watching Discovery I thought of buying an Elephant. I’ve been always fascinated by elephants. And Lord Ganesh the “Elephant God”. The huge size they posses is just pleasure to watch. But I don’t like watching animals in zoo. They are at their best in wild. And so do the elephants.
Back to the topic. I was watching this documentary on elephants “Wildlife Special – Elephants”. A very nice documentary and liked it. Elephants posses some great qualities and somehow they resemble human beings. They have a huge families. If there is danger signs are passed from on group to another group. And these signals travels kilometers.
The fact that I liked was the amount of food they eat. They eat 150Kgs per day. And the next thought made me buy the elephant. With the amount of food they eat they pass gas. And that whole lot of gas. It’s 2000 liters per day.
This is methane gas. This much amount can burn for almost 10 hours. Enough to cook my food, Boil water. The increasing price of oil and gas leads me to this alternative. For my needs I’ll require only 2-3 hours of that. So you can take the rest of it. Recently 3-4 days back gas price was hiked by Rs. 50. Thats a bit too high. We have to search for an alternate.
This gives you another reason to save elephants. Save elephants and save money.
