Don't ask me any more clue than the car, the crowd and the woman clicking the picture.

Ok - seems to be a classic car rally somewhere in Europe. We know you were in Austria recently. Put the two together, and Google comes up with The 21st Classic Marathon. But the car does not bear a competitor number.

Please confirm.

Hmm.. this time google Uncle didn't give you correct info. It is not a competition.

Car - German Polizei (A new Mini - not a usual police car!), So it is in Germany. Polizei uncle is just showing off.
Woman - in traditional attire.
Lot of people.. so it is some kind of festival?

If you put it all together,
The obvious guess will be Oktoberfest in Munich...
Yes it is and this was taken during the famous beer festival.. Been there twice.
The shot is from the parade of Beer carts from various Breweries:

No wonder I was confused! A cop car without cops in uniform in it, and a nicely rally-prepped classic cop car with snazzy wheels at that! Deutschland uber alles!

That's the Badi Degh at the Ajmer Sharif dargah. But I thought cameras are off-limits there?

Right on sir , I guess you're living by you're handle. I also have my picture at the same place. Noone stopped us while taking these pictures so i guess they were not banned.

I'm soon going to post one more picture to guess.

Is this AJC Bose Road Flyover in Kolkata? If it is, I'd like to know which building you perched on to get this POV?

I thought you'll get it! Good. Now walk that road and identify the building!

Yeah right! Walk along a flyover looking up, while whizzing cars flashing by ensure your imminent obliteration! All for the sake of identifying one building.

Anyway, here's putting my sleuth skills to work. The ground on the right appears to be the La Martiniere school (Girls) ground. One can make out the shed of the Ballygunge Circular Road petrol pump in the near left, flanked by the building containing the Honda and Bajaj showroom.

So here's the guess. Has this been taken from top of the Krishna building? Or the building immediately next to it (Balaka, I think)?

The landmarks are correct, but even I don't remember the name of the building - AFAIK it's Balaka.

Good going, PW. Here's a pic that you would identify in one instant - so just enjoy it! Don't intend it to be a part of the series.

But no one got Pic#31 yet, despite the hints. Technocrat, you don't want to have another go at it with the hint?

Pic #31 continues to be unanswered. Will answer by tomorrow if no attempts are made till then.

Here's Pic #35. A chicken dish, very typical of this particular area. (And yes, those are flames!)

Name the dish and/or name the place.

Absolutely correct. That is the Shesh Saya, a 35 foot (11 meter) monolithic statue of Lord Vishnu, at Bandhavgarh National Park.
