Recognisable features: Her severely affected gait and  diffused joint which visibly shows a limp as she walks

Facility: Elephant Conservation and Care Centre

Favourite food: Beetroot and jaggery

Closest to: Suzy

Favourite activities: Loves taking a bath in her pool, and often tends to nap there as the water helps in taking the weight off her arthritic and exhausted limbs

Special needs: Due to her severely affected joints and arthritic-ridden limbs, Asha’s walks are very slow and measured with her mahout constantly around her coaxing her with her favourite jaggery and dates!

Mahout name: Babu Lal

Background history: Asha lived most of her life being used as a riding elephant at the Amer Fort, in Jaipur. After suffering an injury that permanently affected her gait, she was illegally trafficked to Madhya Pradesh where she lived the next phase of abuse being used as a begging elephant. When timid Asha arrived at Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Centre in 2015, she was in dire need of medical attention and the love and care that she was devoid of her whole life.
