A man in Raghamohan village of West Bengal has installed early warning system to alert villagers ahead of elephant attacks in villages near forest areas. The village lying near the Indo-Nepal border faces frequent attacks by pachyderms which not only destroy paddy and maize fields, but cause human injuries and deaths as well. A local, Bishnu Tamang, has made an alarm bell so that villagers can be alerted about the presence of elephants. When Tamang went to Karnataka for a special training program, under the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), he learnt several ways to tackle with elephants. After completion of the program, he installed Early Warning System (EWS) in his paddy field. It uses two switches, a nylon rope, a doorbell and two batteries to protect his fields. The unique concept has met with good response and villagers have adopted it in their fields too. Many villagers visit Tamang and ask him about the alarm system as it has been a huge success. Hundreds of people are killed every year by the attacks caused by elephants.
