How did you find it?
A lot of tedious scrolling through "India insects" and "India grasshoppers" on Google Images. As I recall, it didn't show up till far far down the grasshopper page, but that gave enough info to allow for Googling the rest of it. I learned more than I'd intended, but it's all for the good.

What is this - A beetle or some bug?

This usually seen in SGNP, Mumbai sometime before the monsoon starts. They are seen crawling near the dried up water sources or under the trees beneath thick foliage.

Posting 2 photos of the same bug, different angles!

You're welcome. Don't know if it's the same as Naveena's bug, though. This critter apparently comes in an amazing variety of color schemes, but haven't seen precisely the one Naveena posted. distaff wonders whether I'm right but then that's not news.

This critter landed on my bino bag as we were hanging around outside Crawford market early in the morning in 2007.

What is it?

That's right, I think! It should be a 'Red Cotton Bug'. I now remember that I took the above posted photos under a big 'Silk Cotton tree'!! The place has these bugs crawling all over!

Thanks for the ID.

Yes, Dave. Even I feel it is the same bug in the post #13.

Hi distaff,

in the photograph above is The Lemon Pansy (Junonia lemonias).

I did not ID the butterfly but one of my friend ID-ed it. He is not on IM, though.

A Chocolate Pansy, my click.

Thanks for the ID, naveena.

My Lemon Pansy certainly shows signs of having led a rough life.
He (?) stayed on my bag for at least 5 minutes while sperehealfe took the photo.

Well, even I felt that he/she resembled a war veteran but when I looked at it keenly, I felt somebody must have intentionally cut it's wings - I mean some kid playfully? There's a bit of symmetry in the tear, don't you think?

Maybe. But if the poor thing had the rotten fortune to get attacked twice by birds while its wings were folded, it might produce the same effect.
