The Incredible Delhi: Space to Hear

The team mNAP had an absolutely amazing two weeks in Delhi with traffic jammed roads, wedding celebrations, meeting interesting folks from varied backgrounds, trying authentic cuisines, sourcing material, getting a workspace, explaining drawings, getting people to participate, booking cabs, looking for auto rickshaws to run on meters, checking out the pubs & grubs, following our ears to experience sonic landscape of the city called DELHiiiii……!!

Here is a picture story of the two weeks well spent & invested to raise awareness about noise pollution through our project “mNAP- Space to hear”.

Agrasen ki Baoli (stepwell)

Agrasen ki Baoli is a stepwell situated in the heart of the city on the Hailey road near Connaught place. Definitely one my favourite places explored during the two weeks. Away from teh buzz of central delhi & located just off the main road and there is a very narrow lane that leads one to it’s entrance. Although the zen space gets invaded by a lot of college going student groups & lovers. It has become a selfie spot with everyone saying cheese for the smart phone cameras. It’s amazing how we forget or rather choose to ignore and disrespect other people’s presence in a public space. There are many more such monuments of historical importance in the city which I would love to visit again & share the sounds of the space here at mNAP blog.
