Glimpses of Delhi

Lovely storytelling doc. I had been to that nai sarak, couple of times to buy some old books. The prices weren't as great as what was fabled.
I recollect my tryst with CC once where a friend of mine was duped while he bought a calculator. It happened in a matter of minutes. He was having a look at a small calculator and all of a sudden was surrounded by four goons who forced him to buy that piece of trash for 100 Rs.
Thanks for looking, Nischaya.
You are right about the prices at NS. Once upon a time they were always south of the more happening locales. Not any longer.
And 'fleecers' are always round the corner, waiting to make a quick buck.

Doc Pushpinder, Awesome vignettes from Old Delhi. As AnupJi said, the filth and jostling crowds do repel, but Old Delhi is still charming to me. Any time of the day, it is a photographer's dream come true. You have captured some very typical scenes of my favourite city!
Thanks Koshy sir.
Love photographing there.
The vendors and the like are so tuned to photogs that it is easy to shoot them. No one creates a brouhaha.

Let me Introduce to you all a very Old friend of mine, Old very old.
He lives at Karol bagh in corner house, at one of the most sort after (now) commercial location in Delhi.
'Karol Bagh' Metro Station is overhead, Ajmal Khan Road Market, meets Pusa road where he stands.

Year after year, I pay visit to grand old gentleman, He never fails me, always greets with blossoms.


has survived such commercialisation till date.


Salute owners of his place for keeping the area Green till now, otherwise a primmest of prime location for Mall or a Big Hotel.

This year, was tempted to take a Photo of This Mango Man.

I just caught up with this thread! Excellent pics.

Pushpinder, your Safdarjang's tomb series is brilliant.


May I add some from last year's visit to the Qutb Minar ?

Our stay in New Delhi in April 2013 was very short. The main destination which I had in my mind like a mantra was the Qutb Minar. Mr EnglishAugust had visited this place back in the early eighties when it was still possible to embrace the pillar and make a wish to return to India. He had done so; he had returned on multiple occasions, but never to the Qutb Minar until now.

EA, those are wonderful images....
You need really long arms to embrace that pillar now. :)
Only the Law ( read authorities) with their proverbial long arms can do so now ( they have the keys to the fenced off enclosure ;) )
