A few months ago, I was invited to be a judge at the Nature in Focus Wildlife Festival held in Bengaluru. Along with other judges, we chose a powerful, evocative photograph of a mother and baby elephant crossing a road with fires under their feet. A mob can be seen beyond them. It’s a searing picture of the Human-Elephant encounter gone wrong and captured at its most heart-rending moment. The fear and pain on the faces of the elephants, especially the calf, is heartbreaking.
