I have been photographing Harley Davidson bikes and HOGs when I travel abroad.    Then it dawned on me, why not photograph Royal Enfield, a brand  from Madras which has been resurrected from near oblivion and now attaining a cult status.

This image is from a showroom in Adyar. Elsewhere, I have images of the bike in Himachal Pradesh, (Dalhousie and McLeod Ganj), Mussoorie and other locales.

Still on the subject of autorickshaws. This is Vijayakumar, an autorickshaw driver from Harrington Road.

A smile and a ‘Swami saranam’ established the rapport and he willingly posed and said that he was going to ‘malai’ next month.
