Elephant Visits In Assam: The Gentle Giants Push Cars, Visit Schools & Enter Weekly Markets
Narengi area in Guwahati is known for frequent elephant visits. Every other day one can spot these gentle giants taking walks, exploring the local weekly markets in search of food or for instance, pushing a car, as in this video. Before this video, an elephant was spotted inside the Army Public School, Narengi. The animal casually walked through the corridors of the school. Later, the elephant came out of the school building after savouring some food. Although, it had to wiggle its way out of the building.
