Due to the baby elephant’s joyful play, the traffic in Assam halted for atleast 30 minutes and a few vehicles had to change their route to reach on time. Meanwhile, others had to face inconvenience for a while in their cars until he finished his game. Despite all these difficulties, few passers-by spent their time watching this exuberant and sprightly elephant cub.

The video was captured by Akshoi Gogoi while on his way back from a road trip to home with his friends. Shared by Caters TV on YouTube, it has amassed over 60,000 views so far.
