Chandni Chowk tou nahi Chawri Bazaar; which is one stop before Chandni on the Metro. I am on my way to the Urdu Bazaar to get some books for a friend. Aap bhi aaye? I have to warn you that I was only carrying my phone so the photo quality is not that great.
|...and amongst all the angst and chaos and filth, the Jamia Masjid rose regal. Much like Tabu in a very bad film. In the pic you can catch a little bit of the moon. Tabu is surrounded by her own luminous aura.|
|...and I paid my obeisance to Karim's and admired the beautiful entrance. The one in Nizamuddin is Dastarkhwan-e-Karim. The others are just pretenders to the crown.|
|..and walking in the alleys I admired some beautiful balustrades , and doorways , and windows to another world. And after a while I could imagine what the place would have looked like even a decade ago. And like many before me was lost in the dream of what was and what was yet to come.|
So in conclusion. Will I go again? Maybe. But I think for now I am Team Yash Raichand. Dear Mr. Bachchan in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham , I understand your pain man. And two daughter-in-laws from the Chowk, Nandini? Wow.
