It is a scientifically proven fact that a calm and composed mind helps humans live longer. It holds true for animals too, proves the life of Chenkalloor Dakshayani, the 85-year-old female elephant owned by the Travancore Devaswom Board.
In her decades-long glorious career, Dakshayani hasn’t ever gone unruly or attacked anyone, testify her keepers. She is probably the oldest surviving elephant in captivity on earth.
According to the Guinness Records, the oldest elephant on earth ever was Lin Wang of Taiwan Zoo that died aged 86 in 2003.
