The road that led away from everything
There was a road that led to the forest reserve at Kaziranga. And there was a non descript road that led away from everything.
Ofcourse George and Sanah set off away from everything.
Just around ther corner, they emerged, five of them and their mahouts.
They were there to cool off and get scrubbed down. Five elephants chortling in pure joy, that is possibly the image that will stay with her for a long long time.
The smallest, cuddliest one of them reared its trunk to say hello to the little girl who was watching eagerly. I think she swooned.
We just sat around and watched them leave.
The road could not go back to being non-descript.
And we did spot a mother and child pair in the forest reserve the next morning. Wild elephants in the forest.
