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.”
” excitement , swiftness, odour, love, passion,
complete florescence of the body, wrath , prowess ,
and fearlessness are declared
to the eight excellences of musth ”
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…..
