What better way to spend the Eid morning than to wander in the lanes of Chandani Chowk !!

It all started when I saw this photo walk event on Facebook. I wasn’t sure of going as it was all about photography and I am obviously not a photographer. But then I saw some ace bloggers accepting the invite and then I thought if not for the photos I have to be there to meet these great people. I have seen their posts, I follow them on every social media and here was a chance to meet them in person. I didn’t wanna give it a miss.

Saturday mornings are a bit difficult for me but the dedication got me going and finally I reached Chandani Chowk, I was in constant touch with Tarun who was one of the organizers. He is also an avid blogger and writes at My Greedy BackPack.He introduced me to the group and then we started with the walk.

After a while everyone wanted to have breakfast, and when in Chandani Chowk how can you eat anything else other than parathas. We made our way to the famous Parathe Wali Gali and treated ourselves with stuffed parathas.

Look at the dog, how comfortable he is.

Making our way ahead we reached a sweet shop which had variety of sweets and everyone tried some or the other items.

Happy to see so many customers early in the morning.

Below are some random shots that I took during the walk.

Har fikr ko dhue mein udata chala gaya..
Because it was a Saturday morning, this was a compulsory spotting.

This has to have some auspicious significance as It was hanging in front of ever shop.

The most obvious conversation could be “Bhaijan Eid Mubarak”. He handled the shutterbugs every well.

We then reached to a “Kachauri” shop which was flooded with customer even at that hour of the morning. I am sure it tastes as heaven but I couldn’t try as I was full with the parathas.

This is quite a rush considering the morning hours.

I am a little tea pot, short and stout.

Another star of the day who enjoyed multiple clicks and lived the celebrity moment.

We also went to Mirza Ghalib ki Haweli and I will be floating another blog on that very soon. The weather starting showing signs which wasn’t appropriate for the high end cameras that everyone was carrying, so we decided to head back home.

It was  fun to discover the narrow lanes of Chandani Chowk. I have never seen Chandani Chowk so sparse, it always brings that boisterous picture in my head. But this time it was different. The roads were empty and there was no one pushing and brushing you.

This is how I spent my Eid morning in Chandni Chowk doing a Photo Walk with #DelhiDarter I hope you liked it too.
