Age is just a number when it comes to Old  Delhi. Yes! it is old in terms of tradition, diversification, it's vivid culture but when it comes to heart, it can beat any of the place under New Delhi. No matters WALMART, STARBUCKS etc may flourish and help swelling the INDIAN ECONOMY but tradition is a thing which no INDIAN will ever leave behind. We might have developed or modernized with time but the smell of jalebis, imartis, samosas, 
pani puri still water our mouths. From busy streets of Chandni Chowk to book market Nai Sarak, from electronics market Bhagirath Palace to Street of spices Khari Baoli, one can feel the rush inside which can't be felt anywhere else in the capital. The place is not only famous for it'd culture and tradition but also it possess heredity and history of this great nation. Red Fort stands tall and bold speaking and telling loud the history. Other historic or the places that must be visited are Jama Maszid, Gauri Shankar Mandir, Sheeshganj Gurudwara, Town Hall etc. To wonder a few I would like to tell that GALIB belonged to Old Delhi. It is one of the biggest business hub. The food here is just unbeatable and incomparable. Every place has it's own story to tell you.
While purchasing books for the last semester I discovered a new place, a very narrow road, PATLI GALI, book market. It is so narrow that one can't even peep through :P

But old Delhi is a place worth dating, seriously I said dating because after that you'll fall in love with it. 

If you ever get a chance to visit Delhi, India. Please do visit OLD DELHI. :)

Hi readers,
I know I am posting after a long time. Well today I have a different as well as a same topic to discuss here. I know my points may contradict ones beliefs so please I'm saying sorry for that in advance itself. 

Yesterday I had a chance, one I always dreamed of, to talk to a family member of an acid attack victim TUBA TUBASSUM, a 15 year old girl from Siwan, Bihar, India. She wanted to be a doctor but now she is an acid attack victim and getting her treatment. Acid was splashed on her by predators while she was going to attend her tuition classes which left her with burnt face, one eye blinded & other complication and she needs multiple surgeries. You may refer to the link that follows to know more about TUBA.


Yesterday while talking to her maternal uncle I felt the pain of the family undergoing these changes. It must be a really hard time for them. But, the thing I liked most about the family of these victims' is their positivism, a hope which is alive deep in their heart. I inquired about well being of TUBA to which his uncle said Thank you! I asked him not to say thank you as humanity is the only thing which asked me to support her. Although from different religion, different regions we all are humans with same red fluid flowing through our blood vessels so why to take religion as a barrier. Religion is to believe and follow. A very line in national song of INDIA teach us "MAZHAB NHI SIKHATA AAPAS MEIN BER RAKHNA" ( religion does not teach us to envy each other). There is no use of barricading in name of religion.
Tuba is someone I am very close to now. She is like a sister. I wish I could pay her a visit and tell her personally that I'M THERE WITH HER. SHE IS NOT ALONE.
She will be here next month, in Delhi as she has to see her doctors. If possible, I'll go and meet her.

It is not just Tuba who is waiting for justice to come her way.
Let's see what Indian judiciary and Politics do to help them all.
Till then we can just pray. It is my request, no matter what part of world you belong to, no matter if you know both of us ( tuba and me) pray for Tuba to get well soon.
