Milo tries to jump up but is unable to free herself from the dangerous situation. Ananda couldn’t stand still seeing Milo in danger. A feeling of courage and compassion arose in Ananda’s heart. He knew he had to do something to save this puppy.
With her courage and skill, Ananda stepped firmly into the weeds. With a powerful jump, Ananda jumped into the river and swam to Milo. Using her strong and gentle trunk, Ananda held Milo on her back and swam back to safety. People around stood amazed, unable to believe what they were witnessing.
They recognized Ananda’s kindness and courage, and celebrated him as a hero. Since then, Ananda has become a symbol of courage and kindness in the forest. Those who hear Ananda’s story are inspired to step out and help others around them, regardless of size or species. Ananda and Milo become best friends.
