    What you don’t see here is that the beast was wading through a chest-high feral sea of scooters, three wheeled auto-rickshaws, pushcarts, small cars, bicycles, pedestrians, small cars, buses, and lorries. All darting across lanes, beeping, yelling, and screeching their brakes. Traffic parted for the elephant like a school of fish flowing around a shark. It never slowed, flinched, or turned aside. Instead it moved steadily forward with ponderous dignity.

    Elephants always have the right of way…. what a wonderful saying to whip out at parties! Especially since you’ve seen it in action. I my own timid way, I respect big trucks, 18 wheelers, etc. They are bigger than my car is.
