The beautiful Delhi instant.

One evening The Delhi Walla saw bougainvillea vines on Lodhi Road. The pink flowers were falling down on the pavement. Underneath, a man was performing his prayers. His coloured costume consisted of various pieces of different clothes sewn together.
One papery bougainvillea settled on the man’s cap.
After finishing his prayers, the man sat cross-legged on the pavement. He picked a bougainvillea from the ground and ate it. He picked another bougainvillea, and another. It was a beautiful moment.
