Rahul Choudhary and his elephant worked at the Amber Palace ferrying tourists up and down the winding road, day in & out. Every day, passengers asked curious questions about elephants to him. He answered each question with an unbelievably heart-melting answer and didn't let his lack of formal education ever stop him pursue a start-up dream. In 2012 Rahul founded Elefantastic as a sanctuary for a domestic breed of Indian elephant. Now home to over 50 elephants, some rescued from circuses and others born into the sanctuary. Unlike the elephants at Amber Palace, Rahul's elephants don't work. Each elephant has their own keeper whom they live with in a comfy dwelling next to their homes on the farm. Guests can visit to take part in the daily rituals of caring for these fantastic beasts.

I am delighted to have come across this. I had been on an elephant from age six weeks born and brought up in India and I love the Asian Elephant. It has grieved me to see them exploited, abused, ill treated. My third book is called India: The Elephant’s Blessing about southern India. I look forward to bringing my family to visit next year in July; our grandchildren would adore the experience.

Make the Nice List this Christmas by Choosing Sustainable Gift Wrapping
The festive season is meant for spending time with loved ones, which can include the exchanging of gifts. Amidst the excitement, we often neglect to consider what happens to all that gift wrap and packaging after we’re through with it. According to the GWP Group, a UK packaging company, consumers in the UK use approximately 227,000 miles of wrapping paper each year, with over 83km2 heading directly to the bin. Many local authorities don’t accept wrapping paper for recycling due to the additives included, such as dye, lamination, and glitter. This abundance of gift wrapping can’t be fixed in place without loads of non recyclable sticky tape - 40 million rolls to be exact. Luckily, having a sustainable Christmas morning is easier to achieve than you might think.
