A Very Happy Diwali, Indeed:
My Report on the Status of Magic in India and Nepal
Yes, on our second morning in Chitwan National Park we were a mere 75 feet from an immense female and her equally immense baby feeding under the trees. Their attention was riveted on us as they made their own shuffling and snorting noises to let our elephant know we had intruded into her personal space. The communication was clear, we had better not move any closer or there would be trouble. Instead, we took a good look at our quarry, snapped a few pictures, and let our mahout know that it was OK to move on.
Our mahout seated on Kanti Kali just before we climbed aboard for a
fine stroll through the Nepalese jungle.
