The more you reach the root of Indian culture, the more recognition you will get worldwide. “RRR” and “The Elephant Whisperers” have proven this by winning Oscars. So far no Indian song has won an Oscar, ‘Natu-Natu’ did. No Indian production has so far won an Oscar, ‘The Elephant Whisperers’. Have done this. Both the images represent the eternal culture of India.
As ‘RRR’ was in news even before its release, we know how Ram Charan’s character gets inspired by Lord Shri Ram with lines like ‘Ramam Raghavam Randhiram’ in a scene. But ‘The Elephant Whisperers’ came into the limelight after she won an Oscar, so it didn’t take long to become known for it. Here we will tell you about this documentary which also destroys many myths.
Before proceeding, please inform that this documentary has been directed by Kartiki Goslavs, while it has been produced by Guneet Monga. This 41-minute documentary released on Netflix took 5 years to shoot. The story takes place in the Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary in Tamil Nadu, where a husband and wife named Bomman and Belli take care of two baby elephants. Both hail from the Kattunayakann tribal community.
The documentary shows how ‘Raghu’ and ‘Ammu’, separated from their group, get Bomman and Belli to raise. “Raghu” comes first and “Ammu” a few months after that. The emotional bond that develops between man and animal during this time is the story of this documentary. Karan Thapliyal’s cinematography from Uttarakhand is amazing. The team had to work hard to please the mischievous elephants, sometimes snatching the camera away.
It was all about the documentary, now let’s get to the real thing. It is also necessary to highlight this reality, because there are some fake activists and thinkers in the country, who, calling themselves well-wishers of Dalits and tribal communities, keep portraying them as different from Hindus. These people who believe in the ‘Arya-Dravid’ theory, who are involved in dividing Sanatani through separatism, want the tribal community to forget their traditions and history and separate from Sanatan culture.
These people will be shocked to see that people of Kattunayakann tribal society worship Vishnu and Shiva. They will not like that Hindu traditions like lighting lamps, breaking coconuts, wearing flower garlands, worshiping in temples and burning incense sticks have been upheld by these tribal Sanatan Samaj people. Tribal society is not only a part of Hinduism, but also represents it. And now it has also been established in the world’s biggest, oldest and grandest movie theater.
In the film’s scene, Bomman of the Kattunayakann tribal Hindu association makes it clear that he is a priest as well as a mahout. At the same time, he is happy with both these duties. This destroys the leftist narrative that says Dalits/tribals and OBCs have no right to become priests. Bomman goes to the Ganesha temple and worships according to the rules and regulations. There is nowhere to stop him.
In the Ramayana, Lord Ram himself eats the fake fruits of the forest dweller Shabri, we are the people of that tradition. When the big Ram temple is being built in Ayodhya, there will also be a Mata Shabri temple. There will also be a temple of Jatayu, the bird that gave its life while protecting Sita’s mother during her abduction. The importance of animals and birds in the Sanatan tradition is not hidden from anyone. Hanuman ji is worshiped in the form of a monkey. An important part of Shriram’s army was the Rikshas, whose president was Jamwant.
We know the story of the contribution of squirrels in the making of Ram Setu. Nishad Kevat made Lord Shri Ram cross the river and Ram embraced him, this incident is also in Ramayana. All are equal before God, such examples are found not only in Ramayana but in all Hindu scriptures. The Vedas taught us to revere, adore and worship all of nature and its every dimension – earth, water, air, clouds, sky, sun, moon and trees and plants.
Perhaps this is why Hindus do not need any activist like Greta Thunberg or any organization like PETA to protect nature. Some Bomman and Belli devote their whole lives to the service of elephants, this is their eternal culture. He is a worshiper of Lord Ganesha and sees his form in every elephant. They are forest dwellers, an important part of our society. He is aarti, is spiritual – that is why he is so close to nature, so kind and sensitive to animals and birds.
“The Elephant Whisperers” themselves, Bommon and Bellie are the real stars of the show. It is only for their constant support and willingness to share a part of their lives with the world that this film won this highest honor. photo.twitter.com/HwjatKQw6W

It is only the Sanatan culture, where there are reports of people shaving their hair and taking refuge in the last journey, even after the death of an animal. Here, the temple star crocodile can also be vegetarian and after its death, its last rites are performed as per custom. This tradition was started by Shriram himself by performing the last rites of Jatayu with his own hands. Hence, ‘The Elephant Whisperers’ conveys a story from the Nilgiri hills bordering Karnataka and Kerala that dispels all narratives of fake Dalit thinkers.
It’s a “Feel Good” documentary, but will make you emotional too. Many such stories can come out from every corner of our country and span many colors and forms of nature. It’s a shame that a Tamil documentary is doing this work, the country’s biggest film industry is involved in serving abuse and sexism in the name of a Bollywood web series. Apart from good films from South India, many such documentaries will now also come, there is hope after the success of ‘The Elephant Whisperers’.
