    In the days of proper Dasara, that was in 1950s, the tall beautiful elephant nick named Biligiri, because it had a beautiful white patch running from his head down on the trunk and was as an young elephant captured in the forest nestling the Biligiri mountains, carried HH Jayachamaraja Wadiyar on the mounted Golden Howdah through the Jambusavari route. Those days in the grand Ane Karoti, almost a mini forest on Ramanuja Road, Biligiri and other captured elephants trained the freshly captured wild elephants, when not participating in Dasara,
    School children witnessed the training and feeding of the elephants through arranged trips. They learned about elephants.
    What a waste it became when this beutiful patch of nature, was bought by the Suttur Mutt, by coaxing HH Wadiyar to donate it for free, to concretise the whole place to construct a college, which was no good as an education institution. From then on, the Suttur seer became the defacto king of Mysuru, wielding more political influence.
