With this picture of a gate leading to the Masjid-i Jahān-Numā, commonly known as the Jama Masjid, in Old Delhi I would like to wish “Ramzan Mubarak” to all my Muslim friends, colleagues and members of my team.
And of course to all of you, Muslims and non-Muslims, who are following my work on internet.

“May this Ramzan bring you the utmost in peace & prosperity.
May lights triumph over darkness.
May peace transcend the earth.
May the spirit of light illuminate the world…”

“What is not in the open street is false, derived, that is to say, literature.”
(Henry Miller – American writer, 1891-1980)

This was shot in Old Delhi a few weeks ago, early in the morning.
There was already some heavy traffic in front of gate number three of Jama Masjid, the largest and best-known mosque in India.
This amazing and vibrant part of the city managed to keep a timeless atmosphere.
The footpath to Kinari Bazaar will make anyone fall in love with the soul of the city…

“O you who believe! when the call is made for prayer on Friday, then hasten to the remembrance of Allah and leave off trading; that is better for you, if you know.”
(The Quran – The Congregation, 62.9)

This is picture of Jama Masjid, the largest and best-known mosque in India, which is in in Old Delhi.
It was a Friday morning at the time of the call for prayer when many people gather in front of gate number two in the amazing market which goes to the main gate of the Red Fort.
This is the place where I always buy a few red apples from Cashmere which might be the tastiest I ever had.
