Cannons as bollards


These are Cannons inverted and buried to act as bollards or markers between Zaoba wadi and  Navi wadi in Girgaon. But the local story is that they symbolise the end of strife and beginning of peace.

  3. A very good use for cannons. Now, if we could get all the cannons in the world...aw, crap, people would just figure out other ways to kill each other!
