    Seems to be an ordinary picture. Without the associated text, it just looks like another mammoth strolling on the road.

    I don’t recognize the road. Someone help?

    Congratulations to Nagesh Panathale!

    I agree. What is so special about this picture? It appears photographer was just lucky to be in that place. To be honest it is a horrible composition for a “staff photographer”!!

    I am proud of our Kannadiga commuters. This is proof that nothing ever bothers us.

    agree with jitendra pawar

    I am glad that the pachyderm was shot with a camera and not with a gun. Excellent phogograph. It is not every day that we see an elephant on the road, without its mohut.

    An excellent photograph! Here wee see the lord ganesh quelling all obstacles to clear the road to a better life. He is followed by his many worshippers. He cares little for the man-made chaos behind him. Move forward he says with giagantic steps towards tomorrow.
