Exposure: Caught on camera

A regular one photo story from streets and public spaces across India

The peacock was recently seen trying to enter the well-secured Mausam Bhawan, or the India Meteorological Department office, on Lodhi Road in central Delhi. The blue-uniformed security guard did not object to the intrusion even though the transgressor had no I-card to flaunt. The sprawling greens of Mausam Bhawan are home to about a dozen peacocks, which often fly to the rooftops of houses in nearby Jor Bagh. Some of the other places in Delhi where you can look out for peacocks are Deer Park, Nehru Park, Asiad Village, Jahanpanah City Forest and Lodhi Gardens. Protective enclosures were built in Lodhi Gardens in 2009 to house baby peacocks until they learnt to fly.
