festivals and elephants...

In Kerala, elephant is an inevitable part of the festivals.  Great festivals like Trichur Pooram is famous all over the world.  Lakhs of people attend these festivals.  Now and then these festivals are disrupted by these poor animals.  Especially when they are not properly cared or when people disturb them.  The mahouts have a tough time in controlling the elephants when people around are too curious.  These never affect people in coming in large volume to attend festivals where these royal animals are also participating...
Preparing elephants for the festivals...

the preparation is also very interesting to watch...

Dearest Jyothisethu,

Elephants are such intelligent animals and they deserve to be treated fairly. We did enjoy an encounter with some baby elephants while working in India. You can read it here: http://bit.ly/Nbkaii
Love to you,
