A different color of life

Posted by
Chetan (Gurgaon, India) on 15 May 2018 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Taken at Khari Baoli, Old Delhi. Its asia's largest spice market and dates back to Mughal age. The moment you are in its vicinity, the aroma changes . As you move from shop to shop, you can smell mild fragrance of Almonds and other dry-fruits, to something as strong as chilli - which in my case resulted in endless sneezing :)
Captured here is a colonial building - a shopkeeper was kind enough to share its history and calls it possibly the oldest mall. The lower floors still serve as shops, and higher ones were once used by traders and their families to stay.

Life is so full of happenings, that we hardly notice as worthy.
Here is my attempt to share those moments.
