The Things We Click

At Nehru Place, while the flooring was being redone. ‘Rejuvenation’ work has been completed

Excellent advice at a Mojari shop in Jaipur.

Menu’s Menus are often a great source of entertainment at Dinner, when conversation is slow. When I go out, I rarely order for myself, but am the first to pick up the menu to look for something that amuses me. This was taken at a brief stopover for a quick junk food lunch that lasted less than a seemingly long 10 min.

Obviously for storing water, but Fire Tank?

Hot wheels. Clicked at the NDPL station near home.

Taken at the Jaipur Literary Fest. Dalrymple’s been indianised.

Now one photograph that I could not click was while driving near the old fort (after Pragati Maidan and before the Zoo) in Delhi. There was a red Maruti 800 on which was a sticker – ‘Narayan Karthikien ka baap’.

(There’s more, but I’ll have to search for it. Watch this space… No, no revealing “MMS'”. Down boys.)

    I too love camphone pics. Here’s what I consider to be one of my best:

    Besides, the great debate is on here:

    What do you think?

  4. all tanks that hold water are called water tanks, right? the correct term is fire-fighting water tanks/reservoirs. thats a shorter name for the same, i guess.
