Since the year 2020 began, several shocking news has been making rounds of media. The most tragic of them is the spread of the deadly virus- COVID-19. Then we get to hear about the killing of an innocent man, George Floyd by a police officer in America that has now turned the citizens’ rage leading to nationwide protests.
And yesterday the social media was flooded with the posts of a pregnant elephant being a victim of an insensitive and complete inhumane act.
