A heart wrenching story of Raju moved the whole world. His 50 years of slavery and abuse will melt your heart and question your belief in humanity. Raju was captured as a baby elephant 50 years ago in Allahabad. Since then his whole life is spent in shackles. He was tortured and abused. He was forced to beg and live on the scraps offered by tourists. For 24 hours a day he was kept in spiked shackles which are very painful and make it impossible for him to move. This sad story has a happy ending though. Yes there are still good people on this earth.

All this changed when an organization called Wildlife SOS rescued Raju from his captors one day at mid night. Raju immediately knew that he was being freed from this 50 years of trauma and he cried with tears rolling down his eyes. This completely moved the rescue team as well as the whole world.
