Man sings elephant to sleep with lullaby

This is the adorable moment an elephant rider or mahout sings a lullaby to lull an elephant to sleep.

The elephant named Bastian Vinaysundar, who lives near Thrissur in Kerala, was finding it difficult to take a nap on October 15.

Mahut Sree Kumar helped the Bastian to get the rest it needed.

He hugged the elephant, which had laid down, and sung a lullaby in Malayalam language to it.

Listening to the melodious song the elephant went to sleep.

Sree Kumar is a well-known amateur singer and mimicry artist who has appeared in several TV shows.
