Elephant In Thailand

To be oriented in cross-cultural issues is imperative in someones life when planning to go abroad. There are a lot of issues culturally in every country. If not to be aware of it, you will end up to be racial. We will never closed our minds and emotions to learn others cultures and their belief. 
I learned here in Thailand that Elephant has a significant in the life of Thai people. They worship it. Some people go from town to town, village to village, house to house with their elephant and asked people to buy their sugarcane and feed the elephant. I am not pretty well inclined of their beliefs about this. I am still wondering where did this credence come from that they give a higher regard to elephant.

We saw them near our village.

My wife is giving sugarcane stick to the elephant... 20 baht for 6 small stick of sugarcane
