Best Buddy!
Canon EOS 5D Mark III with Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM

He was brought home when he was about 1 month old and as soon as he met Udayans 1 year old Daschund, Tobo, he chased after him. Thus he was named Gunda, the bossy ringmaster to the entire household. Gunda finds it hard to keep still, more so when there is food around. He is Udayans shadow, following him all day long or should we say Udayan is Gundas shadow? They are like two sides of the same coin. Inseparable best buddies.

Udayan’s three year old son decided it was time to sneakily service the cycle that held his fascination for so long without his fathers knowledge just before bath time so he could wash away any grease later. Just as he climbed his cycle to service daddy’s cycle, little Ujan realized that he had left the spanner and degreaser spray behind. Udayan got this candid shot of his in-house mechanic in action.
