That elephant's destiny is to travel the beaches of the world, brining joy to every man, woman, and child it comes across.
Beach blanket Babar.

judging by the handler walking the waving baby elephant off at the end, it is my expert opinion as a pessimistic asshole that this 'cute' behavior has only been trained into the elephant through repeated beatings, whippings, and having its mother shot in front of it.
You can train animals, especially ones that are as intelligent as elephants, without all of that. I'd hate to see how you personally train a dog.
The Thais have a spiritual bond with elephants and they are heavily protected under Thai law. Chances are this dude is being taken care of okay.

Pay the fuck attention when Mommy is talking to you, Ella May!
I think the man is just concerned that the baby elephant will go on a baby rampage and kill white babies! Wouldn't you be worried about that?
Especially if you were only gettin 12 rupees an hour?
Yeha, I'd be pretty pissed if I were a Thai elephant being paid in Indian currency.
The realities of a global marketplace and migrant labor.
