One last #tbt before the day ends. From my @sneakerpimps #sneakerpimpsindia trip a few weeks ago. Hanging with my home girl rangamala the elephant. A long standing tradition for these packyderms and their humans in Jaipur india is to get decorated, originating back in the day for ceremonies for royalty. Usually they paint these ornate beautifully symmetric geometric patterns on their trunk area and body. I obviously have no skills in that area, so rangamala helped me get a message back home to my newborn daughter @babylilisworld and wife @goumada . Thank you rangamala for helping me send some love back home!
Now many of you may be worried about the well being of these elephants. The coloring used is 100 percent made out of vegetables, and definitely causes them no harm. Do they enjoy it though? Well that is certainly debatable. However, before feeling some type of way about this practice, think about a dog or pet who has had tight ass t-shirt put on them, or the time you made your kid and husband wear matching Hawaiian shirts when you went on vacation in honolulu. Does your dog really like wearing that cute HOODIE?? Like I said... Debatable... However, rangamala DEFINITELY Loved the cleanup afterwards, which you can see by swiping left. We gave her a quick rub down and shiatsu, and a nice cold shower to cool off in. Reminded me of washing my Honda crv but I had to scrub behind her ears. There was the option for me to bath her In a pool, and I think we could have even took a trip to the river to be even more in the moment... But time was not on my side. Maybe next time rangamala. I hear elephants have really good memories, so I'll look for you the next time I'm in town.
