Quote: I would much rather have men ask why I have no statue, than why I have one.

Yet another statue!!! I can see you folks grumbling down there but isn't (wasn't) India a land of statues, saints and snake charmers?
I have always wondered whether the statues have any significance except for acting as a circular median in a junction. Eventhough it may not have significance to those who pass by it everyday, for visitors/tourist its a great way showcasing our history - atleast pointers to them.
If only we took better care for our statues/monuments. Though please dont judge based on this photograph. This was shot while trying to utilise the few seconds which I was stuck in the middle of a road in Hyderabad (where else). I seem to have a great ability to devalue whatever I see through my cam. My colleague for whom I shot some "proposal" portraits, might readily attest this :-).
