Elephants in my frontyard! These are the Mysore Prince's 'pets. They go for a walk in the morning in front of our house. Tradition has it that it is good (for both parties) if they are fed with coconuts and rice. The elephant is actually worshipped. These are trained to "hand over" the coin placed at the tip of its trunk to the mahout on top. We invited them in for one such visit at the behest of our children.
