HOLD WHILE THE GIANT PASSES . . .
ಆನೆ ನಡೆದಿದ್ದೇ ದಾರಿ is a very famous saying in Kannada which shows the deep respect and influence of elephants in our minds. Elephants are the largest land animals in the world and are incredibly social.
There are two messages I wanted to convey through this image.
The first message is that elephants are loved by everyone and it’s an exciting thing to see one in the wild. The forest department safari vehicle came in at the perfect time so I could get a picture of how happy and curious people are to see an elephant in the wild.
With that being one message I wanted to convey, the other message is that of linear projects running amidst the forests intervening in the lives of a lot of animals seeking shelter in forests. Roads and railway tracks are some of the major reasons for wild animal deaths. People should educate themselves about speed limits and maintain the sanctity of the place. We have to remember that we are entering their territory and we should respect that.
