STRIKES TERROR IN ENEMIES' HEARTS
The eale or yale lived in South India. It was said
to have two horns facing in opposite directions so that it could attack
and protect itself better when fighting in differnet directions. The Indians
are supposed to have kept it as a guardian against evil spirits.
In Persia a single horn was the symbol for highest
cruelty and danger and therefore the shadhahvar was regarded as a dangerous
beast. It was described as a creature that looked somewhat like an antelope
yet with a single horn on its forehead. This horn hat hollow ends which
created the most beautiful and tempting melodies when the wind blew trough
them. Other animals who heard these melodies were lured out of their hiding
places by the sound and killed by the shadhahvar at the very moment they
had come too near to it.
