Date with Delhi is one year old today- all thanks to you dear readers (and thanks to WordPress for diligently reminding me). The experience has been rewarding, exciting and exasperating all at once… but more than anything, it has been a constant reminder of a side of Delhi I’d otherwise forget. A Delhi that lies buried under the swanky malls and traffic-clogged roads, that cowers behind the ugly corruption and the hopeless insecurity of the times.
This ephemeral Delhi is a centuries-old megacity, rich with beauty and heritage, art and culture, resplendent with stories of magnificent monarchs and Sufi saints. It is a Delhi I wish I knew more closely, for it’s as fascinating as an epic of mammoth proportions with innumerable twists in the tale. And this is the city I wish to bring to you.
By the way friends, I’m toying with the idea of collating some of my favorite moments over the last year and creating a picture collage for you….let’s see if committing it here keeps the motivation going 🙂
