Mohideen Ishaq Baig, son of Mohideen Baig (1919-1991)

I spent an hour chatting with Ishaq, without knowing who he was, talking about matters in general. He and I were early for the musical, I as an invitee to light the lamp, in this case candle and he had to wait at least 3 hours for his performance to start. That was rather unkind for a former well known singer in his own right, but sadly on the wane needing to make a living to feel somewhat wanted! Confident and dignified, but a forlorn gentleman

Elephants - singles/ doubles (male) small herds up to 20 animals - everywhere you go - Wasgamuwa National Park last week of November 2017

The elephant charged, though we were stopped and kept silent, and he went round the cab sized us before simply joining the large herd that was grazing just to the right of the picture.
