Lodhi Garden, New Delhi’s most scenic historic park, is visited by a diverse group of people every day: politicians, businessmen, doctors, and also the occasional celebrity. And of course, me!

In the midst of hectic examinations or on quiet breezy days, I frequently visit the park for a leisurely jog. Hanging out with the fitness freaks or eating ice-cream over by the lake, I am often observed in my “natural habitat.”

I have formed many interesting associations and have had many exciting chats and discussions at Lodhi over the years. From discussing the medical aspects of mobile phone radiations while strolling with the Head of Pharmacology of a famous medical college in Delhi to exchanging recipes with a famous celebrity chef on the jogging track, I have been exposed to new ideas and fresh perspectives on a variety of topics.

I look forward to my next visit to Lodhi – it’s now more than just a walk in the park!
