"Mahout Jalil Ahmad looked after Indira in her twilight years. More than five of Indiraâ€™s mahouts who preceded Ahmed have since retired from service. Ahmad said, â€œToday we feel we have lost a family members Indira was very sober by nature. In my service of 20 years, Iâ€™ve never seen her display anger on any occasion. Any visitor could approach her without any fear. She was very popular among children.â€
Indira used to be a regular participant in Rajyotsava celebrations, Shivamogga Dasara, nearby fairs, festivals and the campâ€™s own elephant festival. But over the past two years, she did not take part in any activity due to old age. Yet she was in better health compared to others at the camp. â€œHer teeth were in much better shape than the younger elephants,â€ said Ahmad.
The last rites were performed in Shettihalli reserve forest on Monday evening, in the presence of senior forest officers and caretakers"
