A photograph of an elephant and her calf fleeing a mob, fire bombs at their feet, has sparked a debate in India about the rising conflict between humans and animals for land.

The picture won Biplab Hazra, the award for wildlife photographer of the year from one of India's Sanctuary Nature Foundation. One of the judges said the picture "conveys today's reality, where animals that we once prayed to as gods, we are now throwing fireballs at."
