"The whole concept of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is, at last, to set foot on one's own country as a foreign land."
Spending 18 years of my life in Agra, I seemed to have imagined a different side to it. The daily chaotic mixture of traffic, bumpy roads and a population of 10 lakh with no road etiquette made me wonder 'Why would anybody from a foreign land want to visit this city of Agra?', more often than one might think. I never thought the city had so much to offer through the eyes of a nonnative.
