SONEPUR, INDIA - NOVEMBER 14: A mahut sits on his elephant as it drinks water from the Ganges river during the the Sonepur Mela on November 14, 2011 in Sonepur near Patna, India. The cattle fair, held in the Indian state of Bihar, has its origins during ancient times, when people traded elephants and horses across the auspicious river Ganges. The mela used to attract traders from places as distant as Central Asia. It is one of Asia's largest cattle fairs and lasts for a fortnight. (Photo by Daniel Berehulak/Getty Images) less
