In Indian marriages the groom goes to bride’s place where the both get married. For this purpose various mode of transportation are as per the affordability of the groom’s side. Simple car decorated with flowers and Horses are commonly used for this purpose. But the people, who can afford, want to do something different to make it a memorable event in the life. And in this attempt an elephant was used for this purpose yesterday in the city of Sagar, in India. The elephant got frightened on the way which was passing through a busy market because of the loud sound played by the band and the fire crackers that were used and has become violent and created a rampageous show in the market by destroying many things. Thanks God there were no casualties and things were under control after the police entered the scene! The point here is that the people don’t take any permission to hire such animals for the marriage functions and they don’t take permission of the police to have public processions. Luckily things were under control …otherwise there could have been big disaster as this incidence occurred in a busy market during the night time! I am not against the customs…but then some people should twice before hiring such animals and also ensure proper safety measures to the people in the procession and to the onlookers! What do you feel about this whole incidence? Your comments will be highly appreciated! Thanks!

There are some people who don't think things through when planning events. The motto of your story is "be prepared." Many animals can be scared by loud noises.

Yes, they are ...they are reared as domestic animals to get them use for the works where high energy is required! Thanks @kepweng !

Many people don't understand animal behaviour. No animal likes fireworks and sudden loud noises. It was a silly choice of vehicle.
