    Anti burglar device would be my first guess .. some sort of anti-lightning contraption would be the second (although its doesn’t appear to be earthed) …

    If it’s your neighbor, why don’t you just go, knock on the door and ask them? Its not considered out of the ordinary in India!!

    Dont know whatever it is..but the guy at the local store who sold it went like this..”dada, apnaar ei a/c tar sathe eta jodi kene, ekkkebarre life ta double hoe jabe, ar apnake konno chinta korte hobe na” the salesman most certainly looks like the Bengali comedian Chinmoy, and chews a lot of paan-jorda..

    Rajib, I believe this is to protect the A/C from damage caused by street kids either playing cricket or stone pelting. PS: It is very common playing cricket in streets in India đŸ™‚

    Rajiv, on which floor is this AC installed? If it is on the 1st or 2nd floor, i definitely support the cricket ball idea. From the picture the AC seems a new installation, so wait and watch for the plastic canopy to come up on top, to protect it from rain splash.
    Btw, as for AC vs DC, I don’t feel AC is cheaper, it us easier to transmit AC to a longer distance.
