My basic knowledge of the Hindu pantheon of gods is that Vishnu is the one who carries a conch shell (along with an ax, mace and a spinning disc in his other three hands). But this figure is clearly not Vishnu, so I'm stumped. If anyone can enlighten me, please do. . . :-)
If you are expecting someone at chennai airport.no need to rush headlong into parking lots.they charge you and there is no shade.
i will suggest you an alternative.just outside the airport is the airport road with lots of shade due to trees and a small hillock overlooking the airport.
some local trains pass by so that you can while away your time in comfort.when your arrival comes you can see the plane taxiing in to the parking bay.in a few moments your loved ones can call u on your cell. ask them to wait at arrivals. drive down in your car and pick them up.
at no other airport i have this convenience. thats why i love chennai airport.
especially useful to people expecting their bosses by the incoming flight.
you can get a good view of takeoffs from this point too.

Southern India - Chennai.
This was the first scene that I captured as I left the airport... I took Air India this time around.. and the airport authorities were pretty slack as when we tried to open the door to enter the airport... it was locked!! And here we were at the tarmac banging at the door trying to get someone's attention .. *well... some of the other passengers at least*.. we got an officials attention 10 mins later and got thru.. quite funny actually...
Had this shot from the cab... rows and rows of pots up on sale...
