Ram and Laxman are twin bull elephants which are about to receive training. Traditional training methods leave elephant calves traumatised and injured (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKUDW2y3H-0).
Humane training has been introduced in Nepal but is still in its infancy. Evidence based humane training methods avoid trauma, improves the bond between animal and caretaker and leads to happy, confident and obedient working elephants.
Nepal will not deserve credit for continuing traditional training methods. Providing humane training to the twins will set a positive example for the future and will ensure that Ram and Laxman will be handled with love and care.
