'Anarkali' and 'Salim' love story in discussion

The secret love between the two was revealed when the staff of Bandhavgarh Park Management caught sight of the famous elephant Anarkali. Her boyfriend was expressing love by entering a wild elephant camp. The elephant, who became crazy in love, secretly tried to take away the elephant named Anarkali by entering the camp. The wild elephant sneaked into the Salim camp and once again reached Anarkali. The loving elephant pushed Anarkali along and took her towards the forest. 

Chief Conservator of Forests of Bandhavgarh revealed this information 

The park management is also assuming that there is an internal matter between two wild animals. Bandhavgarh Chief Conservator of Forests BS Annigeri told that Salim had taken Anarkali two to three months ago. After two-three days the elephant could be brought back. The elephant is very important for Anarkali Park. Anarkali is named after Gautam among the oldest elephants in Bandhavgarh National Park

Born in 1964, the Anarkali elephant was bought by the park management in 1978-79 from Sonepur Mela in Bihar. 58-year-old Anarkali has given birth to four children in Bandhavgarh since 2012. The children have two males and two females.

Anarkali has the biggest contribution in increasing the number of 14 domesticated elephants in Bandhavgarh National Park. This is the reason why the park management is trying to keep Anarkali safe. There are more possibilities of growth in Anarkali. In such a situation, leaving Anarkali with Salim in the free movement of wild elephants is proving to be a loss to the park management.

According to the park management, when wild and domesticated elephants come face to face, the behavior of both is normal. There is no sudden change in the behavior of both of them in any way, but for the past one month, a wild elephant is in love with the most famous elephant of the park, Anarkali. Salim is always trying to meet his Anarkali and often reaches the elephant camp set up by the park management.
