Mind the Gap

Delhi, like India, is full ofcontradictions and history. Here empires were built, buried and rebuilt, asmany as fourteen times. The present is crowded, modern, ambitious – a potpourriof cultures and conflicts, where swanky cars dodge carefree bovines on roadslit with neon signs. The Metro has brought a ray of hope for those who want tosee Delhi up-and-close on foot.
