COB: Off Beat Clicks

It’s time for Cee’s odd ball challenge – with full license (well more than usual [if that is possible]) to play as we like, with whatever we like, no questions asked. So here are a bunch of odd photos that I hope will enjoy browsing.


Caught this one showing off her (his?) lip job 😀

Girl WindowI was trying to capture the window when this girl came by – I thought it looked cool. Do you think so too?

Pose odd

This has to be my favorite COB shot 😀 All those people posing to catch the tip of the Vijay Stambh  which if you remember I had showcased in an earlier post. The contortionist photographers were also quite a sight to behold. No wonder all those langurs were out in hordes. 😀

Thanks for stopping by – any personal favorites? Do tell.

Hello Anyone There?

Words 150


“Dad please!” They gheraoed him.


Why ever not?”

“Because it’s my house and I say so.”

“But Dad,” said the eldest with a quelling glance at his sibling, “think of the advantages.”

“Over my dead body.”

“Daddy,” his daughter too chipped in, “selling the house would sort all our financial troubles.” She sniffled. “Ma would have also liked you to…”

“If she were alive, I would’ve shifted.”

“But Daddy, the house is falling to bits and it’s old fashioned, inconvenient for you…”

“I don’t care. I’m not selling.” He was adamant.

“Don’t be such a stick in the mud Shankar!” Exhorted his friend. “Sell off this prime property and buy a sprawling bungalow with a marvelous view of the lake, sunset…”

“I don’t want a big house.”

“Why not? Isn’t it cramped and inconvenient here?”

“Perhaps.” Shankar said in low voice, “But at least I get to see them.”
