Delhi - Beneath the veneer of the hustle-bustle, the politicos and the beaurocracy, and our 'in-famous' rash behavior lies a city built and used as a capital by different empires, each leaving an enduring mark. This photoblog is my humble effort to unearth the beauty that we often cant see or simply choose to ignore while allowing me to explore my hobby for photography in greater detail.

Suraj Kund Mela

Instead of the early morning sojourn to some monument, we decided to soak in the sights and sounds of SurajKund Crafts Mela this week. It is not easy to describe the atmosphere as one finds it there. People dressed in costumes, candy floss makers, chat stalls, tight-rope walkers, kaliedescopes, stalls from all across the country and even abroad, it is a colorful, cheerful affair. Oh and the crowd.. 50000 people reportedly went to the mela on Saturday, so i'm guessing it would've been more on Sunday.

Enough said.. I'm not good with words, nor with people photography. All images have been shot by Abhinav :)
