Sound of crackers scare elephant carrying Howdah in Mandya: Mahout averts major tragedy

Mandya: The elephant carrying wooden Howdah was frightened by the sound of crackers during Dasara Jambu Savari procession in Srirangapattana near here on Saturday October 9.

Dasara Jambu Savari was inaugurated by Adichunchanagiri Matha Pontiff Nirmalananda Swamiji. District In-charge Minister Narayana Gowda and Srirangapattana MLA Ravindra Srikantaiah was also present at the event. The Jambu Savari began shortly after the pontiff threw flowers on the howdah.

People began bursting crackers in a matter of seconds. Crackers and loud speakers frightened the elephant Gopalaswamy, who was carrying Chamundeshwari idol in a wooden Howdah. The people ran helter-skelter. The mahout controlled the elephant before it tried to run amok, averting a major tragedy.

The officials then cancelled the elephant’s Jambu Savari and took out a procession in a silver chariot. The elephant Gopalaswamy was also frightened during canon firing rehearsal at Mysuru palace premises. District In-Charge Minister Gowda gave Rs. 3000 cash prize to mahout who controlled the elephant.
