Rising above modernity


You have to look pretty high in Delhi to find a view that showcases India’s illustrious past while also obscuring her modern rise.

But Qutub Minar is tall enough. When jumbo jets aren’t cruising in and out of the nearby international airport.

Not that I’m a primitivist or a return-to-times-gone-by wallah, but it certainly is pleasant to see visions of history: an ancient tower and a blue summer sky.
