They start flashing with the first signs of darkness and keep on blinking throughout the night. As the sun rises they stop blinking, only to start flashing once again as the sun sets and the sky is filled with darkness.
These are not vesak lights or blinking lights that are used for celebrating special events but are ordinary led bulbs that are being used for a specific purpose. As the sun sets and darkness takes over the once bright blue sky out – come these majestic creatures.
Some come in herds and others one at a time. Their silent footsteps are not heard by the farmers during this time of the night. The elephants slowly make their way through the jungle area in search of food. But they are suddenly taken by surprise when they see these flashing lights, lights they haven’t seen before and lights in an area that is familiar to them.
