Once upon a time
Once upon a time there was an ancient Indian village, all of whose inhabitants were blind. One day the residents heard that a large elephant was about to visit their village. They have heard about the elephant so far only from stories, they heard that this is a huge, beautiful and noble animal. It was a great opportunity to try to understand what this animal was all about. They may not be able to see it, but there is no doubt that touching can help to understand what it is.
