Faces of india 270

Belavadi village kids having a great time playing with a baby elephant! It is sculpted out of sandstone and is centuries old, but that hardly matters to them. I watched them play, climb up and down the little elephant, laughing and giggling away. It seemed much better than the plastic toy elephants kids of cities play with. The 3 of them in the front were posing for another tourist. The pic was taken in Sri Veeranarayana Temple complex.

  1. Nice picture. They seem to be so happy.

  2. Beautiful image of children playing naturally, Indrani. Much better than playing with technological toys: cell phones, i pads, etc. We see that too often here in South Africa. Thanks for sharing. Greetings Jo

    Very nice, refreshing pic! 🙂

  13. This click brings back memories from childhood. We had a installation near our home back in Bidar. It was a plaything for all the kids in neighborhood. Dadima told us it was part of the fort once.

    It is good to see ASI actively rescuing and reclaming all structures with historical significance now. At least in Delhi NCR it is visible..the renovations carried out on a large scale. But it has yet to reach remote places I feel.
