Project Idea: Elephants

Elephants are one of the most distinctive animals of India, and you will find many elephant tales in the Indian storytelling tradition, starting with Ganesha and his elephant head.

Research Tip: Start with the Wikipedia article about the Indian elephant, and also the article on cultural depictions of elephants. You will find articles about the Indra's elephant Airavata, and also Gajendra, the elephant devoted to Vishnu. There are many Jataka tales about elephants too!
