My Caption: "Gather the troops, prepare for battle, we need to take over the world."

Previous Caption This photo was shot in Mysore Zoo. The Guy in the blue T-shirt is the elephants care taker, This guy was on the other side of the trench and wanted to cross it. He jumped into the trench and called out a name.  Herd of elephants were grazing few yards away and one of the elephant from the herd turned and started walking slowly towards this guy, when it came near the trench, it knelt down offered its tusk and lifted this guy from the trench and placed him on the ground gently and walked away and joined the herd.  It was amazing to see the relationship this gentle gaint and its care taker had.
