Qutub Minar, New Delhi, India on a cloudy spring day ~ What do you do when visiting a monument or place (a beautiful one nonetheless) for the 100th time ? When you are already familiar with the layout, the structure, the gardens of the destination ? Well, I tend to look and re-look into the details and manage to find something new in a familiar place. 

Qutub Minar – A perspective

I have grown up with Qutub Minar, literally, having visited it first time as a toddler from Playschool and then coming here many times during school years, college time and with the visiting family members (like today). While I have aged, this beautiful monument looks the same, reminding me of my own fragility as a human.
