As i am posting this, the festival of Vishu just passed by yesterday..This tree Kani Konna blooms in its full fury, sometimes more flowers than the leaves...Vishu is celebrated in Kerala, and adjoining areas of Tamilnadu state.

At the day of festive Vishu people gets up at the early morning and goes to the prayer room and sees the 'Vishukkani' which they believes will make their following life prosperous and peaceful..After this the elders gives away presents to children and the custom is called 'Vishukkaineetam'..

Do you like to buy one as a Pet for your home. Elephants are domesticated and trained to do things here in Kerala especially for religious and business purposes..

The biggest mammal on land in man's control..An Indian Elephant.A tusker here..When compared to African elephants smaller in ear size and tusk length..These Indian Elephants are considered to be endangered due to heavy poaching for ivory..

These days elephant fury newses and deaths are common, pointing to the fact that we need more severe restrictions and laws for keeping Elephants and caring them..
