Elephants for Sale at The Sonpur Mela

Down near the train tracks and river there where a few more elephants for sale. This place was off the beaten path and a little more peaceful than the main elephant area.

    Is this something to be proud of? Shame on you 360cities. Elephants are just another living beings like humans. People have no rights to sell them. It is a shame that a media like you is encouraging them. Please have a hate button instead of your like button. Stop animal abuse. I wish Mr. Narendra Modi should take some immediate action to rescue the animals and sell these poachers instead. Wildlife SOS please do inspect these gatherings too! Grow up 360cities. Freedom is for everyone not just for you to post some random stuffs! -Responsible Indian

    Mer om Asia

    Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
