Elephant in the street (India)
The elephant passes money donations do his Mahout.
Given the size of his tusks (which have been sawed off, presumably for the ivory), this looks like an old elephant.
The mahout is the person that drives the elephant. For more information, read en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahout
