If a person dies in an accident on the road, that person is entitled to get claim money from the Insurance Company, who has done the insurance of the vehicle by which that person is hit. But what if the same claim amount is given when an elephant dies in an accident. In a historical judgment, the Rajasthan High Court in India has ordered the New India Assurance Company to pay a sum of Indian Rupees 599,440 ( US $ 13,320 ) to the owner of the elephant. In the judgment, court has equated the elephants in the same category as that of human beings.

Earlier, New India Insurance Company had suggested to give Indian Rupees 2,000 ( US $ 45 ) only for the dead animal. Now after the judgment, New India Assurance Company, which had done the insurance of the jeep by which elephant was hit has to pay the sum of Indian Rupees 599,440 ( US $ 13,320 ) to the owner.

Now what shall be the equality of a dog to the human being, as hundreds of dogs are also killed by the vehicles on the Indian highways. May be, as these are stray dogs, there is nobody to put the claim, but what if someone's pet dog is killed on the road & then, in what proportion pet dog shall be equal to the human being!!!!!!!!!!!!!! May be one day such case too shall come to the court & court has to ponder over that question..............
