The other side of Delhi

402

[D]illi/Delhi/Dehli call it by any name and what comes to mind is a salad bowl of cultures, religions, languages and people. The capital of India famous for Mughal architecture, Mosques, Markets and the best it has, the diversity is not just a city but an experience. People from across India and the world come here, some visit the city and some stay here. Once you are here, you can’t miss famous ruins, tombs and qilas spread in the length and breadth of the city.

Ghalib’s tomb, Jama Masjid, Sishganj Gurudwara and Sunday book-bazaar in Old Delhi take you to another world of history, books and poetry. Dargah of Khawaja Nizamuddin attracts almost everyone. And who can miss to visit Hauz Khas, Chandni Chowk, Khan Market, Sarojini Nagar, and Karol Bagh for amazing food and shooping. Sprawling malls and shopping complexes adorn the city.

[I]n between all this glitz and glamour, we have a class of people, who come here from the underbelly of this nation to make a living in the capital. Work the whole day and then sleep on the streets-that’s the life mantra or say the only option for them. These are the people who often get mowed down by SUV’s or Porsche’s. The night life of this city has two faces. Two faces of this city do meet often, but they never join each other. The divide is wide, much wider that the glittering lights of the city make a huge population to vanish into the thin air, the air of live-and-let-live. Muhabit-ul-Haq catches some of the frames of the thin air and the moments in between.


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
