Paharganj is Falling Down . . .

. . . or being knocked down, to be more accurate.

7th June 2010

Delhi's popular "backpacker ghetto", Paharganj, is currently unrecognizable as it undergoes drastic remodeling in preparation for the Commonwealth Games which will be held in India in September 2010.

I was only here five weeks ago, and it resembled a building site then - now it's more like a war zone. The street has been widened by demolishing the buildings fronting it.

I can't quite see the work being completed in time somehow!
