    Sagaya Fernando Mumbai: 28 September 2022     In a bizarre case, doctors in India surgically removed 62 spoons from the stomach and one spoon lodged in the intestine of a patient.   The patient named Vijay was brought to Evan Hospital in Muzaffarnagar city of Uttar Pradesh, India, in the second week of September by his family members claiming that he had eaten a steel spoon.   “The patient did not complain of any abdominal pain, but I conducted an examination of his stomach and came to the conclusion that some foreign objects are lodged in his stomach,” said surgeon Dr Rakesh Khurana who conducted the surgery.   The doctor asked the patient to undergo an X-ray examination and was aghast to discover multiple spoons lodged in the patient’s stomach and one in the intestine.   “On being asked, the patient admitted that he had been ingesting spoons for the past one year,” said Dr Khurana.   Sensing the seriousness of the case, the patient was asked to undergo surgery at the earliest.

"Temple elephant tramples mahout to death in India"

The mahout of a temple elephant in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu was trampled to death by the enraged pachyderm today morning.

Three women and a child sustained injuries after the elephant suddenly turned violent during the course of religious rituals at Samayapuram Mariamman Temple near the city of Tiruchirapalli.

Panicked devotees ran helter-skelter to escape from the rampaging, and the temple gates were shut with the elephant venting its anger on the hapless mahout.

Video of the incident taken by a devotee shows a man attempting to divert the attention of the elephant to save the mahout but in vain.

“The incident took place around 11 in the morning. Gajendran, the 42-year-old mahout, was trampled to death by Masini, the nine-year-old temple elephant which turned violent all of a sudden,” informed Samayapuram police station inspector D Gnanvelan.

The deceased mahout hailed from Mahalikudi near Samayapuram.

Forest department officials rushed to the temple and launched efforts to calm down the restive elephant.

Masini had been experiencing trauma and torture from the day it was sent to the Samayapuram temple, allege wildlife activists. This is the second occasion the pachyderm has burst out in anger.

“Elephants in captivity are being exploited for profit in tourism and in festivals under the guise of religion. Many are forced to stand still for hours on end to bless devotees. It is not in the nature of elephants to be immobile. In their natural habitats in the jungles they continuously walk on foraging for food, but in captivity they are chained and kept immobile which frustrates them and makes them run amok,” says wildlife activist Suparna Ganguly who is the Co-founder Trustee of Compassion Unlimited Plus Action (CUPA) and Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation Centre (WRRC), Bengaluru.

  1. A few weeks ago, someone noticed how attached we are to our rats, wondering how we could go through the heartbreak of loving animals with such a short lifespan. I didn’t know how to answer as we haven’t yet gone through the experience.

  2. But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
