Homing pigeons of Chennai

We met Balan in a narrow lane off Harrington Road. He proudly showed us his homing pigeons. He reminded us that these are local varieties and are not racing pigeons. Racing  pigeons are different and he said there were quite a few enthusiasts in Chennai. While his  pigeons do not go beyond the city,  racing pigeons can fly hundreds of kilometers.
