My Delhi

An enormous fort of red sandstone in the background and a veritable sea of humanity in the foreground. Wires snaking everywhere, cycle rickshaws darting through the smallest gap in traffic. Internet cafes and curry westerns, shining satin saris and big blue turbans. Rickety three wheelers lugging more than the biggest pickup America can build tower over a friendly gang of smokers. This is Delhi my friend and Shah Jehan's Delhi has just been invaded by the Golden Arches.

Viva la Chandni Chowk !!
