Saturday morning sight-seeing

Being a tourist in one’s own city is an underrated pastime, I think. With three sleepy teenagers in tow,  I went to watch the changing of the guard at  Rashtrapati Bhavan early this morning. The roads were blissfully empty – I suppose being a long weekend helps – and one could actually appreciate the beauty and design of Lutyens Delhi.  The changing of the guard was a fabulous spectacle, with all the pageantry and precision which India does so well. Last time I saw the ceremony, the President’s Bodyguard was resplendent in red. Now they have changed to their summer kit, and are now equally resplendent in white.
