This door is a Tibetan flag. It looks a bit dusty, but it serves its purpose. I like the scooter parked outside, next to the crutch against the wall. The only rule to be aware of when driving 2, 3 or 4 wheeled vehicles in Delhi is that there are no rules. Motorbike and scooter accidents are very common. I wonder if that is why there is a well-worn crutch outside.
These are the doors to a telephone exchange in Chandni Chowk, Old Delhi. I’d guess that all this wiring will become obsolete soon, with digital exchanges. Even the spectator on the right (who is collecting recycling rubbish) finds it amusing.
Next, a gateway to a haveli, or town mansion. You get two photos of this, one with a cyclo-rickshaw carrying bottles of propane gas for cooking.
Another magnificent entrance in the back alleys of Old Delhi. Like layers of onionskin, the outer scalloped arch, then smooth arch, square blue lintel and doorway, with massive doors held with chains, finally leading to an unassuming, bolted brownish grey door. Who knows what lies beyond it?
And finally, the doorway to a Hindu temple. Ring the bell to attract the god’s attention.
