Elephants have a retirement age now!

The Tamil Nadu forest department framed rules for elephants recently. Elephants in the state will work only five days a week and will retire at the age of 60! They will be given a three-hour bath every day and an annual vacation during the monsoon!

Further, during their last tenure, the Jayalalithaa government had organized an annual health camp for elephants where they were given herbal bath, oil massage and medicinal food!

Isn't this a bit over-enthusiastic and impractical?
