  1. Hello Rakmoddin!
    Walking through those marbled corridors and peaceful memorials would have been more like strolling down the historic episodes of Indian Independence. Remembering The Father Of Our Nation and his struggle in such close quarters is really amazing. Good photography and if I may ask, which camera do you use to capture your delights?
