This Mother and new new baby were located a few villages away from where I lived in Southern Kerala, India. It was beautiful to witness the deep bond between them. In a short time, I became a recognizable friend to Lekshmi the mother. She would welcome me by throwing her trunk up in the air and swinging it to and fro and young Sivan would race towards me in glee rolling on his back like a little puppy dog expecting a tummy rub! Truly precious!
