“What do we have to lose?” asked Athadassi, “I tell you, she carries the first one in her heart. The dream has revealed a way forward. Let her speak with soma and let us hear her first story.”
No-one would ordinarily disagree with Athadassi, the most sagacious Seer, but the stakes were high. Paradise itself may be at risk. They had not heard the voice in Padma. To them, she sounded and acted like any young elephant in her situation, frightened and confused. What finally persuaded them was the ringing quality of truth which chimed in their ears with the words, ‘what do we have to lose’. They had no desire to sacrifice another elephant in a seemingly hopeless quest, but urgency demanded action.
