Coming across another blatant example of cruelty to animals in the name of human culture when leg-shackled elephants with visible chafe marks on their legs are forced to trudge through Colombo’s crowded and noisy roads during the annual Nawam Maha Perahera, an orchestrated and uber-patriotic, all-pomp-and-pageantry procession of traditional dancers and musicians, (i) tightly controlled by a parade of the state’s all-present obnoxious police, (ii) loudly applauded by a grovelling entourage of Western bigots in politically correct white robes, and (iii) zealously blessed by the orange-clad hard-line weasels of the omnipresent Theravada Buddhist clergy, the vanguard of Sinhalese nationalism.
