    How did those kabootars allow you to come so close to them ? Some photographs are very good !

      These were pets, so, I guess, they were used to being close to humans.

    I am sure that would be an obsession. You have done a marvelous job of capturing both still and video, not to talk of all those stairs you climbed, plus the wooden ladder. Out here in Mumbai, we can enjoy kabootarbazi without a master, and I have done that on occasions. However, I hate the goo they keep dropping.

      Thanks Umashankarji. Thankfully, they were holding off while they were flying or dropping on non-humans. The title of the post would have been a little different had they pooped.
