Of course, we can’t talk about how Mara has changed in the past month (see yesterday’s post) without talking about how Rana has evolved during this time. Like Mara, Rana has also gained a best friend.
After Ramba passed, Rana reverted to her people-oriented self. That has completely changed in the past few weeks. She is still sweet and affectionate with those she loves, yet her humans now seem to be in the periphery of her life. Mara is the center of her universe. As it should be.
Their relationship is beautiful and, no matter what is going on, she is always aware of where Mara is and what Mara is doing. She is continuously checking in with Mara. Their bond is incredibly deep and moving to witness.
As we often say, elephants mean more to each other than any human ever could. When an elephant finds another elephant that resonates with them, nothing else seems to matter. That’s where Rana is right now, with a very cheesy grin.
They are providing for each other in a way that no human possibly can, and Rana couldn’t be happier.
