Spiral Staircase


The Tamil Nadu Police Museum. The old heritage building of the Police Commissioner in Egmore has been tastefully restored and converted into a police museum. A laudable initiative. The curator and staff were very enthusiastic and took us around and explained the various exhibits and the background.

Just before Navaratri, the streets around the Kapaliswarar Temple are filled with shops selling Golu dolls made of Papier mache, terra cotta, POP, wood metal etc.

The shops are usually set and up and managed by families including women and children. It is not uncommon to see mothers taking care of infants while transacting business, as in this frame.
