I have been in love with, infatuated by and fascinated with animals my entire life. Especially elephants. Having spent time in Sri Lanka living with and observing elephants both in conservation and in the wild, I want to try and do what I can to help protect them. Instead of just dragging myself through mud for the fun of it, I figured I would do it for a cause close to my heart. Elephants love mud, so I am going to learn to love mud just as much on my way to my November 3rd Race Day (on top of train and be ready to avoid humiliating myself). Here to make Pooja proud.
