Celebrities have taken upon the cause to get people together to save an ailing and injured elephant in Mumbai. Calls to save Bijlee, the ailing animal, were already buzzing on microblogging site Twitter, with need for volunteers and donations being tweeted about. Bijlee had collapsed on the road last week.

Amitabh Bachchan

Insane how much money and care we can lavish on trees, idols and idiots and not when being human actually counts doing God’s work.

In a city that shuts down & empties its coffers for clay elephants every year, how could this happen to a real one?
