Into the jungle we went. Our jeep bounded over the bumpy dirt road, the driver in search of one of Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary’s wild elephants. We came to a halt a few hundred metres from this female. She didn’t like us at all, and decided to charge. I’ve never driven in reverse so fast in my life.
She chased us far enough to let us know her displeasure at being disturbed, thew some dirt on her head, then faded back into the jungle.
The jungle returned to its foggy quiet as if she had never been there.
Elsewhere, the deer were happily munching on the grass.
