In 2018, Prasad was moved from Borgang to the Bihali tea estate along with Thomas Murmu, the Adivasi mahut (keeper) of the elephant. Thomas’s father had been the elephant’s keeper when it was acquired by the Magor Group.
Following his father’s passing, Thomas took on the responsibility.
“Bijuli is my life, and my employment in the tea garden revolves around caring for it. My family relies on me because of Bijuli. He reminds me of my father," expressed Thomas Murmu, who had been looking after Prasad for the past two decades.
