Percaya atau tidak, gadis remaja 14 tahun ini mengaku bisa berbicara dengan gajah. Keahlian Nirmala terlihat saat ia mengusir kawanan gajah yang mengamuk di kota industri Rourkela, India beberapa waktu lalu.

Believe it or not, this 14-year-old teen girl says she can speak with elephants. Nirmala’s ability was seen as she steered away a hoard of elephants on a rampage in the industrial city of Rourkela, India a while ago.

Kala itu, Nirmala Tapno muncul sendirian mendekati kawanan gajah. Warga terkejut sekaligus panik jika terjadi sesuatu yang buruk terhadap Nirmala. Setelah ia berbicara dengan logat daerah setempat, tiba-tiba, sekumpulan gajah tersebut berbalik arah dan kembali ke hutan.

Back then, Nirmala Tapno showed up alone and walked toward the hoard. The locals were in shock and panic, fearing the worst to happen to Nirmala. After she spoke with the local accent, suddenly, the hoard of elephants turned around and marched back into the forest.

Nirmala pun ikut berjalan belasan kilometer untuk membimbing kawanan gajah pulang ke hutan. Akibatnya, kaki Nirmala mengalami lecet. “Infeksi ini akan segera hilang dan mengering,” ujar Nirmala kepada BBC, saat mendapatkan perawatan di rumah sakit.

Nirmala then followed suit for tens of kilometers to escort the hoard of elephants back to the forest. As a result, Nirmala had blisters in her feet. “The infection will dry away,” Nirmala told BBC as she was treated in a hospital.

Nirmala mengaku mendapatkan keahlian berbicara kepada gajah sejak ibunya tewas beberapa tahun lalu. Saat itu, sang ibu tewas karena amukan gajah yang menyerang kampungnya. Sejak itulah, ia belajar untuk berkomunikasi dengan gajah agar bisa dikendalikan.

Nirmala admits to have acquired the ability to speak with elephants since her mother died several years ago. Back then, her mother died on an elephant stampede in her home village. Since then, she learned to communicate with the elephants so she could control them.
