                                     Be selective in your battles.



                                         Sometimes peace is better than being right.

   “Choose your battles wisely.

                        After all, life isn’t measured by how many times you stood up to fight.

                  It’s not winning battles that makes you happy, but it’s how many times you turned away and chose to look into a better direction.

                        Life is too short to spend it on warring. Fight only the most, most, most important ones, let the rest go.”

Makhna in musth…





” excitement , swiftness, odour, love, passion,

complete florescence of the body, wrath , prowess ,

and fearlessness are declared

to the  eight excellences of musth ”


~~~ matangalila






tuskless male elephants….






During musth the temporal gland


of the male swells and secretes a fluid….


During this period the males seek out and mate with cows.


Musth is sometimes described as


” an instinctive desire in the male elephants to fight and even kill, before mating ”






They are generally


big fellows with powerful trunks….





A big makhna is generally feared


by the members of any herd….





They seem to make up in size


of body & trunk for the lack of tusks &


are generally enormously powerful elephants….





It has been recorded that in the case


of a fight between a good sized tusker & a makhna…


the makhna snapped off one of the tusks of its


opponent with its trunk…





many males in musth also have a continual discharge or


dribble of urine , with damp patches on their hind legs…..
