I have always been curious about the various forms of artefacts displayed to ward off the evil eye (Drishti). I have been capturing some of them and presenting here.

This house which commemorates the staunch communist members of the family has images of Ganesha as well as other drishti artefacts.

Broken Bridge

Broken Bridge across Adyar

The original bridge was built in the 1960/70’s for use mainly by the fishermen for moving between Uroor and San Thome. It was destroyed in the high tides in the ’70s and was not rebuilt. Today, it is a haven for photographers, adventurous youth, clandestine lovers and antisocial.

The bridge has been photographed a million times, but I thought this angle from the Leela Palace was not so common.
