About Me

Who am I?

Ex-journalist, Law student who loves to explore the myriad hues of my Delhi.

Why me?

Exploring my city, especially heritage, culture and food, has always been my foremost hobby. I have been associated with informal heritage and food groups in the city, with whom I go to such walks every weekend. I have been wandering around the streets of Chandni Chowk and Chawri Bazaar for the past many years. The medieval era heritage and a variety of lip-smacking Mughlai and other Indian food items always keep me attached to this place, which I would like to show the people coming to Delhi.
