THE HOLY ELEPHANT

This image is a part of my Travel Journal of Sonepur Fair,2014 - Bihar, India. It is a largest Cattle Fair of Asia. While visiting over there I have found out this interesting moment like a woman is presenting her worship & respect to a Big Elephant. This was such a rare moment & the contrast of the red woman respect to the back ground with the ray of lights seems quite catchy to me & I have got a feel of lucky to capture this shot.
