“The life of our city is rich in poetic and marvelous subjects.
We are enveloped and steeped as though in an atmosphere of the marvelous; but we do not notice it.”
(Charles Baudelaire – French Poet, 1821-1867)

No other place in the world compares to this.
I wish Baudelaire came there, his poetry would have been such a masterpiece…
Those buildings standing at Lal ghat are remains of the rich culture of the eternal city and inside each door must open to wonderful dreams…
