It was cool and rainy on my first day in Delhi. The morning mist lent an air of atmosphere to India Gate.
Like L’Arc de Triomphe in Paris, India Gate is a landmark and a tourist attraction as well as a symbol of national pride. It commemorates the death of Indian soldiers who died in World War I and the Afghan wars.
I bought a snack from one of them so I’d have an excuse to chat with him and get a photo.
