Take it easy mate. Perhaps, they may not aware this photo was yours. Once you share the photos in social networks, it may shared endlessly in different communities.

However, Shoot a mail to them. They sure going to tell you apology with due respect/credit.

P.S. That's a wonderful photography.

You do know that whatever you post or share on facebook, actually gets owned by facebook for all practical purposes?

Moreover, you shared that photo is Public. So anybody can access/use your images/info.

So, someone would have saved your photo and shared it with another site/social media, which India Times may never know the source.

Read it mate, makes me sad. But then why use the image by cropping the watermark, they might keep it as well.
Some credits to the photographer.

Heck!! Its not even the mahad marve road, its the Mumbai Agra highway.
Again, that cropping work may not be by India Times. The one who may reshared in the first place may have cut it down. Just a thought.

BTW, they may thought that picture fits perfect for the situation. i.e. The Paranormal.

However, You can still sue them if you want. You have enough evidences already.

Probably to prevent you from asking for more than a credit

This is the height of it!! Perhaps you can sue them for giving wrong information Typically Times!!

But once you have decided to load your photo on the net you can pretty much forget about the ownership of the same

There are thousands of such compilations these days. They cannot prepare such articles with photographs by themselves visiting such places.
If you are concerned about the copy rights I suggest you upload only low resolution photos to facebook etc so they don't make any money out of it.
It is better not to share in social networking sites if you do not want anyone using them for any purpose.

Emailing them is useless - you won't get a response.

If you really want to pursue this, send them a legal notice. You will need to hire a lawyer and file a case. This is the only way.
