Sadak Minar

I found this while driving on a road that runs parallel to the Noida Expressway. It's a brick kiln chimney left untouched on the divider. It seems as if the road builders had a sense of history or irony or humour or all of them together when they decided to leave this thing untouched right in the middle of the road. Maybe it was meant to be a reminder to the commuters of this expanding metropolis that all of man's building ambitions from Indus Valley to the present BHK Boom have had their beginnings in the humble brick baker.
