Accordingly in Odisha's Kusumita village, the sight of wooden platforms atop trees has nothing to do with recreation or 'being one with nature', it's actually the only option for villagers to escape the menace of elephants. As per report, one man from the village has been forced to live in a tree house with his son after his home was damaged by wild elephants three days ago.

Reportedly "Three days back, wild elephants destroyed my home. My son and I are living atop a tree on a temporary house to save our lives from the wild elephants as they frequently come here. A herd of wild elephants has been giving us sleepless nights". Furthermore according to Keonjhar Forest officials, the wooden platform serves as safe option because they can neither climb nor uproot trees. Further reports state that a herd comprising 10 elephants has been roaming the locality, creating ruckus and giving the locals sleepless nights and the man living atop the tree has allegedly requested the state government to provide him a house as compensation.

Sadar Range officer, Sushanta Kumar Pradhan said "We are trying our best to compensate him, paperwork has been done. We also talked to him and made him understand. He has now returned to the village. A squad has been formed by the forest department to track the movement of elephants".
