This old monument in Hauz Khas, New Delhi, is the perfect foil for the freshness of newly blooming crimson poppies. Then again, a thought comes.. Which is older? The ancient monument or the plants that keep growing season after season… Year after year… Replenished, vibrant and rejuvenated..

I often stroll to work, taking different routes at times.  What surprises me are the ancient monuments that reside within the vicinity of housing colonies.  In fact, Delhi is full of such jewels.  Now, thanks to the archaeological society taking great interest in preserving them, most of them are well restored and the lawns surrounding them, quite well maintained 🙂
