Photo Essay – Delhi@Night

City Lite

It’s dangerous, but beautiful.

[Text and pictures by Mayank Austen Soofi]

Delhi is considered an unsafe city at night. They say that the instant the sun sets in Janakpuri, Connaught Place’s Outer Circle starts getting crowded with sex workers. While in the Mohan Nagar-Anand Vihar stretch, commuters become easy prey to bike-riding mobile-phone snatchers. In Basant Lok car parking area, the possibility of molestation gets real. And, of course, we all know that if an unsuspecting girl decides to walk down on the Ring Road from Medical to South Extension, she might be mistakened for a call girl.

Yes readers, the Capital is dangerous after 9pm. Yet, can you deny that the city becomes more beautiful then? Check out these pictures.
