If you zoom in, you can see that they are obviously Tylenol farms.
From: pete592This is driving me nuts. I searched and searched for info on what these things are, but I couldn't find anything.

My best guess is that they have something to do with the cows that they love so much in India. Every one of them is located right next to an array of small buildings. Maybe these are stables of some kind and the ovals are elaborate corrals for the blessed sacred cows?
Here's an even more wild guess: Maybe these are places where they produce cow dung as a cash crop. After all, the Indians have found 1001 different uses for cow patties.
From: ddtjmcdThey're brick kilns.

I was afraid that my cow dung theory was going to be way out there. Glad I didn't disappoint! LMAO.
From: pete592Eureka! Mark's link states that fuels used to stoke the kilns often includes agricultural waste! There may well be a connection to cow patties after all! LOL.
