Early in the morning after her passing, lasts respects were organized for Lakhi. People who worked with her lit incense, and laid flowers. Each keeper had the chance to approach her and say goodbye.

Lakhi had been blinded in both eyes by her former mahouts in order to keep her under control. By the time she was rescued from the streets she was an old elephant and lived only for a brief time at Wildlife SOS's Elephant Conservation and Care Center in Mathura India. But as soon as she was there, free from any future abuse, she became inseparable with two other females, Suzy and Asha, and had a caretaker who loved her like his own family.
