Selvi’s elves

Selvi looks like a normal person. She works as a domestic help in India leading a rather humble life, perhaps earning around $70 a month. But Selvi is no ordinary person. She has a remarkable crew of elves – her streeties.

Kam Raghavan, the person who happened to spot Selvi’s elves, had this to report: “She started working a couple of years ago in one of the apartments in the building you see. There was only one dog on the premises then. She started feeding that dog. Over the last couple of years the brood has become larger. She no longer works at the building. But travels to it every morning with food for her beloved pooches. ”

P.S. We are still get get reports on what the elves are up to. If you are around MRC Nagar, Chennai and spot Selvi, do say a “Hi” and ask her about her elves. We might get some clues. If she permits sharing a picture of her elves, do upload and hashtag it with #selviselves #bombatdawgz.

If you think Selvi’s elves are up to something super cool and want to support her feeding program, give her a buzz. She apparently is open to investors in her project. Leave a comment if you’d like to reach her.

    I have a streetie and I named it hachiko. I was scared a bit initially if my neighbours of the community I live in will object having hachiko roam free in our community as they have kids and pedegree dog pets. To my pleasant surprise every one living in this community started loving him and giving food and vaccination. He is an intelligent fella who managed to win our hearts. I’ve some amazing stories, videos of pics of this handsome hunk and will be glad to share.
