The Bulb of Hope and Prayer – the Delhi Diaries begin here!

"Outside Nizamuddin Dargah"

The Bulb for Hope and Prayer!   

One picture.

Multiple stories.

A few steps outside Nizamuddin Dargah.

Where millions of devotees throng to buy offerings and make a wish for their lives in Delhi to be made easier. In the dark alleys, there is a tiny light bulb that always shines. The flame of Hope and Prayer that keeps dreams of a thousands of migrants coming to India’s capital in search of opportunity, a new lease to life.

Well, everyone has aspirations and everyone is desirous to be part of the great Indian Story of a burgeoning economy, middle class – possibly a nation awakening. And yet, a simple picture like this reminds me  – We are nothing, if we do not have that little thing – called FAITH!



About Chiteisri: The Gypsy Diaries

Its a Fair Warning to all =) While there may be some things about me that everyone knows ... There will always be something about me which nobody can or ever will, figure out! But for a typical introduction - I am a former Law student from India, who is a writer and traveler at heart. I am 27 and have been to 28 countries (and counting) and this blog is a humble attempt at taking a part of my life, experiences, holidays, learnings and dreams to another world of imagination in cyber-space. I know that the world has its fair share of problems, and there is plenty to despair about out there. But I truly believe that this world can be diverse, plural and inclusive and yet one entity - humanity. I am the Dreamer, a lost soul - slowly finding her way back home i.e. to herself! I write. I read. I paint. I dream. I learn. I listen. I empathize. I travel, and no matter who or what I become - these I shall always do!
