Photo Essay – Delhi@Night
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.

It is certainly not safe to be out after 8 P.M., except at India Gate lawns perhaps which has family crowds.
I wish I could cherish the beauty of Delhi at night beyond these photographs…but sadly the ‘unsafe’ tag doesn’t allow me to be out beyond 7 p.m.
gud gud gud,nice pics.
bahut mehnat ki hai bhaiiiii
No, it is not pretty. And it is not safe. And it is not worth it to venture out at all. Just the usual drive to the usual pub to forget the Delhiness of Delhi and back home is much better. And to hell with your wannabe sham-glam photos of dead people in a dead city.
Doesn’t look unsafe at all. Fear is in for yuppies who think they have things to lose. Beautiful pictures!
