The Girl Who Saved The Dying Elephants
The poor elephants could only whimper in pain and tears came out from their closed eyes.
The King of Madhepura was sad because his elephants were sick for a long time. Doctors from all over the country came to treat the elephants.
But all efforts went in vain. Day by day, the elephants’ health became worse. First, they stopped eating food. They were so weak that they could hardly stand or walk. They slept throughout the day.
Soon their huge bodies started to shrink. The poor elephants could only whimper in pain and tears came out from their closed eyes.
Immediately, this news was spread across the country like wild forest fire. A girl from Dehra village heard the news and rushed to treat the elephants.
The girl examined the elephant’s nails and ears. She found that all the elephants had ear infection. She poured medicine on the affected area. The next day, a miracle happened. The elephants were able to stand up after a long time.
The elephants were very happy and raised their trumpets to thank her. When the elephants got completely cured, the king was very happy and awarded the girl 100 gold coins.
