The verdict was out, and we heard people bursting fire crackers while we had some extra heavy breakfast from Rattilal's which was so good that it turned out to be our brunch. We called Sikandarji, as he was the only person we knew around, and we thought we could rely on (intuitions). He offered to take us around to the new lucknow side, as old lucknow was fairly prone to uncertain mishaps because of which everything was shut there.
We finally set out to explore at 2:00pm, after contemplating over it the entire morning.
We visited Dilkusha Gardens first, followed by the Le Marinerie college. We love to see places, irrespective of how famous/relevant they are on a tourist guides map. Dilkusha is a fairly magnificent lakhauri brick structure that housed soldiers back then, where as Le Marinerie left us awestruck by the detailed, intricate hand painted ceilings and interiors.
Next was Dr. Ambedkar Memorial Park, which was majestic yet quite a massive waste of monetary resources. It's nicely executed no doubt, preferably visit this at sunset time.
Our driver drove us around to show us the Sahara India owners property, and the area's that houses huge mansions that belong to the ministers. Also visited 'Sheroes', it's a cafe that is run by acid attack victims.
Dinner was ordered viaSwiggy, from Dastwarkhaan, which is also a must visit. It was surely an eventful day, irrespective of every uncertain event that couldve just taken place.
