At The India Gate;

No! These are not graffiti flags. These are the three “pillars” of India- army, navy and airforce. They have literally walked us through the yellowed pages of history for decades. Salaam!

I will burn for my country even if the night comes to claim your life. Burn, Amar Jyoti Jawan. Let this be the epicenter of ambition, brotherhood and peace!

They have faced the horrors of darkness and blood with a smile. As the sunshine falls on his face like a chiaroscuro, they give us a reason to live and prosper. Meet the soldiers of our nation… “Son after son – never to return from the night of torture”. We salute you!

Jama Masjid entrance: A door that is perfectly anachronistic. Standing against the sands of time, Jama Masjid is dilli ki shaan and echoes the bygone Mughal empire. This monument is beyond religion and time.

Jama Masjid: Grand, authoritative and stupefying architecture- Jama Masjid will compel every tourist for a visit.

Jama Masjid’s Ceiling. This is just like what it was thousands of years ago. This ceiling has heard the silent prayers of many.

Isa Khan Niyazi's mausoleum. A noble in the court of Sher Shah Suri who was known for fighting the Mughal empire, this tomb is an architectural marvel. Notice the mehrabs in the mosque that is built along with the tomb!

It is the magic of Jama Masjid that still electrifies the spirit of Delhi. Here is an aerial view of Jama Masjid!

Bangles! Colourful ones. Mix and match it with jeans and dressy tops and “chutney-fy” your look. You can find tonnes of them in local street shops or farris as the dilliwallahs call them!

The bustling Dilli shahar welcomes you to the ultimate shopper’s paradise! Shop till you drop, bargain your heart out and feel richer even if you did not shell out more bucks. Dilli aane ka toh Sarojini jaane ka.

Wooden bangles can complete an earthy ethnic look this summer. Team it up with cotton handloom saris or printed skirts. This is totally countryside yet it makes you feel urban and chic!

This Handle supports an individual from falling on others. If you do not get a seat, cling on to one of these for a comfortable Metro journey.

Ah! “Dilli Metro me photo kheenchna ek dandniya apraadh hai” Still. We had to do this. We boast of it and we know Delhi Metro is the best thing Delhi could have. By the way, are these people trying to figure out what station are they in???

Aaaamm!! Squeeze it out, have it as a shake or simply have it chilled.. Mangoes is what sustains Delhiwallahs in this terrible heat. By the way, did you know mangoes turn sweeter in Delhi heat?

This is every girl’s must-have. Every girl does turn her head at least once while walking on the street and stop to check these latest accessories! So, do what the dilliwallahs do to sink into the city!

An inside view of Gurdwara Bangla Sahib. The sobriety and the meditative minds add a unique aura to the place.

Gurdwara Bangla Sahib is a must visit even if you are an atheist. The gurbanis can melt every heart and tread you towards meditation. This holds the peace of the city together.

Ear cleaning? Believe it. The city does offer endless possibilities of “luxury” services that can even help you get rid of that extra wax formed in your ear! So, feeling lazy to bud your ear? You know what to do.
