Anant Ambani's Vantara team, associated with the Reliance Foundation, sprang into action to assist an elephant and its calf after they received an email about the animals' being in distress. The Vantara team within 24 hours, travelled over 3,500 kilometres from Jamnagar to Tripura to provide assistance.

On Saturday, promptly responding to the call for help, a team of dedicated doctors was dispatched from Jamnagar to the Unakoti district in Kailasahar, Tripura. Upon reaching the location, the team wasted no time and provided immediate care and support to the distressed elephant and its calf. The swift intervention of the Vantara team was captured in a video that has been widely circulated on social media, showcasing the team's commendable efforts in rescuing the ailing animals.

In the video, a woman claiming to have sent the email for assistance extended gratitude to Anant Ambani and the entire Vantara team for their rapid response in saving the elephants. She appreciated how, within just 24 hours of her initial email seeking aid, the Vantara team arrived at the scene in Tripura.

"I want to thank Anant Ambani, who swiftly mobilized the Vantara team to rescue the ailing elephant and its calf in Tripura's Unakoti district without any delay. I reached out to them via email just one day ago, and the very next day, the Vantara team was here," she expressed, while also extending gratitude to all those who supported and contributed to the successful rescue mission. The video is being widely shared with the hashtag #AnantBhai.
