Photographer's Note

In India, mostly, people train elephants and use them for begging, they walk on the roads with their owner. As they said, this elephant belongs to Hindu temple, and the picture “Om” on his trunk is the symbol of Hinduism which means God. Whoever, like me, wants to take a photo of him, can take and pay rupees to him, he takes the money by the help of his trunk and gives it to his owner who is sitting on him. However, using elephants as a begging tool is prohibited in many states of India.
