By the time we started for Delhi Darshan, it was already noon. The sun was shining bright and it was becoming unbearably hot. We decided to start from what was near gradually moving to more far away places
The first stop was India Gate and the Parliament.
India Gate is a war memorial built to honor more than 90,000 Indian soldiers who fought with the British Army during the First World war. I had first visited India Gate in 2006.
What more could I click in the spot when I had already clicked in my two trips. My first trip to India Gate was in a foggy Wintery Delhi. The second trip was a very sunny and hot Delhi. This time too it was not that different.
