And why is this here?

I like this photo. Without meaning to, I seem to have got a picture that shows stillness - and quiet - in the middle of one of the more crowded parts of Chennai. I hadn't seen this statue (it does seem too small to be called one, doesn't it?) at the Gemini Circle earlier. I'm fairly sure it was added on sometime at the end of May.

As with some of the other statues around the city, this one too does not seem to have any particular significance and looks to be a random act on the part of some authority. Having first noticed it from the rear, I just had to go around and take pictures from the other side also. Apart from the work itself looking much better from the rear, the other pictures did not convey the feeling of serenity in this one. If you've passed through Gemini Circle during peak hour traffic, you'll surely know we could do with a lot of calm at that spot!
