Bholu the Elephant is the mascot for the Indian Railways. Ironically, the very creature that is endorsing this mode of transport is getting violated by it frequently. Train tracks criss-cross prime elephant habitats across India and extremely gory deaths from train collisions are getting frequent. This is definitely not the way the National Heritage Animal deserves to be treated.
Here's a cartoon I did for The Elephant Family's campaign to protect the Indian Elephant from speeding trains, called 'Blood on the Tracks'.
