Another shot from Lutyen’s Delhi. This is the Vijay Chowk (Victory Path) and Rajpath (King’s Road) leading to the Rashtrapathi Bhavan (Presidents Palace) on Raisina Hills. The Buildings to the left are called rather imaginatively the North Block and the ones to the right the South Block. North Block and South Block, also called the Secretariat Building. North Block houses the offices of Finance and Home ministries. South Block hosts External affairs and Defense ministries. Other important offices like some of the Prime Ministers Offices are also in the Secretariat Buildings. So essentially this cluster of buildings control the world’s largest democracy.
I got this shot just before the sun was setting and as government employees were pouring out of these buildings at the end of a shift. The security and police presence in this area is beyond imaginable and I was questioned twice for photographing but once I explained what I was doing they were pretty cool about it and offered me suggestion some nice locations.
