Comments / pictures

As Nayar's (Mahavat of Gautam) wife aka Chachi told me that they reached Bori on 2nd August 1971 with Gautam and Shivaji. Gautam and Shivaji came from a place called Badaliyaar (spelling may be wrong) in Kerala. First, they were stationed at Dhai'n and later shifted to Bori.

Nayar Mahavat along with his family, Kuttappan and Gautam elephant reached Itarsi on 1st August 1971.

Gautam was sent to Bandhavgarh after spending some time in Kanha.

First elephant calf from captive elephants in M.P. National Parks was born in Bandhavgarh in year 1983. Gautam sired it....Badhaini, Sundargaj, Vanraj, Siddhnath, Sudarshini and Ashtam are the few elephants that were born here. Gautam sire them all.
