A quick fix or a cry for help? For the people of Parvathipuram, wild elephants are a common sight. Coexisting with them for about a decade, the villagers have come up with their own systems to not get in the way of the gentle giants. There are hundreds of houses in the region and no street lights, which makes it difficult to navigate the landscape especially at night time. To avoid encounters they use fire torches to signal their presence. The image represents how we often overlook the importance of infrastructure in conflict-prone areas.
