Well I want to be Marco Polo in my own city of Delhi: I believe that my feet are meant to travel and staying at one place is only meant for trees. I love to explore new cultures, places and of course new types of cuisines. Recently with the help my Muslim friend whose relatives stay at old Delhi, I tried to explore the old city. Shahjahanabad (Old Delhi) is the 7th city of Delhi built by Mughal Emperor Shahjahan. It is also known as walled city, it took mughal emperor to 15 years to build this city. It holds history in every brick, its culture is intact among locals, food and cuisines are still having generations old recipes. I still have that old Delhi hangover and the hunger of knowing my own city. I want to live more of my own Old Delhi.
