Beasts of India by Abbas

2013From the smallest, the rat, to the biggest, the elephant, Indians have a special relationship with their animals. In the West, most of these animals can be seen only in the farm or in the zoo. Not in India! There, they cohabit with homo sapiens, they roam the street and dirty them with their droippings, they are fed every day, pampered in Hindu temples,

Some of these beasts are also considered gods by Hindus. Two of the best known are Hanuman, a monkey or Ganesh, an elephant.
