Default I believe this is an Indian Lapwing

... very different from the Carribean Lapwing I used to see:

Lapwings are in the Plover family (Charadriidae) This is a Thick-knee (Burhinidae), probably the Great Thick-knee, and a great shot, too:

You may want to use this site for identifying your Indian birds:
