WINTER MAGIC IN DELHI & VARANASI!

See how winter makes our cOUNTRY’s numerous heritage, cultural and eccentric flavours into an even more attractive avaTAAR!!!

“Shahjahanabad @ Dawn” 

If it were the 17th century, Shahjahanabad would have been the place where all the glitterati of the world would have been found. Be it a trade summit, a fashion preview or a peace accord signing, the erstwhile capital city of the grand Mughal empire, Shahjahanabad or as we call it Old Delhi today would have been the place to be seen in!

Not only was it richly landscaped, its residents were old-world nobility, whose ‘Tehzeeb & Adab’ (roughly translated as etiquette) left people in awe, the financial strength of the empire was at its peak and the most skilled artisans & crafts-persons from around the world made a beeline to attract the rich & famous of Shahjahanabad!

Today three and a half centuries later Chandni Chowk, Jama Masjid, and the hustling-bustling markets still make for striking Instagram posts; hands-down beating the posts from London’s Bond Street, or New York’s Fifth Avenue, making these look common-place!
All because the sights, smells, colour, chaos and craziness of Old Delhi is incomparable!

From being the most prosperous city of the world 350 yrs back, to a desolate place after the 1857 uprising, Shahjahanabad has seen many ups and downs, refusing to let go of its legacy, despite being bestowed a dull name of Old Delhi by her snobbish younger sister New Delhi!

Join us on Sunday for a distinct glimpse of Shahjahanabad, beyond the well-documented *Jama Masjid-Chandni Chowk circuit*, deeper into its heart, which hides in its folds fascinating ‘TALES’ in its numerous maze of ‘TRAILS’ (which even the most advanced GPS can’t navigate!!) and are home for ‘TRADES’ which surprise you !!!

HIGHLIGHTS:
Begin the day at one of the OLDEST SCHOOLS of the country (we promise we will not attend classes!!); chomp your way through DELISH local breakfast; hear the shrieking calls & loud whistles of the KABOOTARBAAZ break the morning calm; close your eyes & focus instead on smells and sounds of a city WAKING UP; or act as SHERLOCK HOLMES to unravel the mysteries of places with names like ‘Namak Fatak’ or ‘Galli Chowkidaar Wali’, sprinkled generously with forgotten stories of people, long gone!

This and much more await you | There is a story at every step of this 360 yr old city | Immerse yourself in this experience led by DBF’s chief resident Shahjahanabadi, Mehtab.
The presentation will be done in a mix of English and Urdu/Hindi.

DAY, DATE & TIME: Sunday, 16th Feb, 2020, 8:30AM-12:00PM [Please reach by/before 8:20AM, as we will not be able to pick your calls after 8:40AM.]
CHARGES: Rs.700/person*
*These charges cover all costs for the story gupshup & our guidance through the maze of Old Delhi… sumptuous traditional breakfast & tea/cold beverage we will eat & drink. Excluding bottled water and rickshaw commuting costs, if any.
*Children aged below age 8yrs go free and ages 09 till 12yrs and Sr Citizens are @ Rs 350.00!

DBF GOES TO KASHI!
बनारसी ताना बाना : Mystical. Musical. Mesmerising

The history of a country is at times epitomised in the history of few of its principal cities. The city of Benaras perhaps indisputably seems to represents India – ancient, intellectual, spiritual, secular, a cultural and musical treasure trove!!!

There are few cities in the world of greater antiquity than Banaras, truly reflecting the Indian ethos of “Atithi Devo Bhava,” after all this ancient city, has always embraced a culture of intellectual debate, embraced the diversity of Hinduism, Islam, Bhakti and Sufism. It has welcomed with open arms mystics, artisans, musicians and people of all colour and race. And through this warm embrace, has also imbibed a diverse array of culture, music and cuisines.

DelhiByFoot & Parwaz invite you to the 3rd edition of our immersive, experiential and culturally-vibrant expedition to that great city of “Kashi”, a city located on the northern shores of the Holy Ganga, bounded by the streams of Varna and Asi, two Ganga tributaries forming the city’s borders…Full of stories, insightful walking explorations, photography opportunities and of course lip-smacking foodie delights!

We will experience the touch of craftsmen working on their art, or meet at the crack of dawn wrestlers as they hone their skills, all the while as they dole out worldly-wise gems of life philosophy; see how & where Tulsidas imagined & wrote down his epic ‘Ramcharitmanas’; immerse in royal history as we enjoy rambling around the Ramnagar Palace/Fort. Glide on the grand river of India on our exclusive boat and feel the energy of Kashi permeating every cell of your body as the sun rises on the edge of the water; enjoy an exclusively designed evening on a royal-style ‘Bajda’ listening to the soothing strains of ‘Kabir’s Dohas’ as we row past the famed ghats of Banaras at sunset.

We will “lose” ourselves in the warp & weft of the world-famous silk weavers of Banaras and encounter myriad anecdotes and an enchanting world of lost tales as we venture into serpentine alleys, bazars and famed ghats of Varanasi. We shall “find” ourselves in the tranquility of Sarnath at the spot where Gautama Buddha first taught the ‘Dhamma’, after his enlightenment. And, most definitely, we will enjoy the culinary experiences of the Delhi By Foot kind!

A kaleidoscopic journey into the many layers of Varanasi awaits you!
ARE YOU GAME FOR AN EXPERIENCE TO TREASURE FOREVER?

DATES: Thursday, 9 Apr till Sunday, 12 Apr

Limited seats, so shoot out a mail to get all details: explore@delhibyfoot.in

  3. Hi Guys, just came across your site… and realised that i’ve missed the walk for the 21st… can you let me know of future walks please… i just love history…

    1. Hi Ayushi,
      Thanks for writing in with your concerns. We do not charge money for providing any travel mode to any participant.
      First let me explain what happens in a typical walk event we organise. People meet at a given point and then guided by us they embark on a short walking tour experience of 2-3 hours which covers a small specific theme/monument/cultural aspect of our city of Delhi. During this walk we share the historical facts of the monuments, then we recount interesting anecdotes about the people, both present and past and share our learnings about the cultural aspects of the city. Contsantly our team update ourselves with interesting trivia, stories and to do all this regularly, safely while maintaining a certain level of quantity is the reason why the money charged is for. I now hope it is clear to you and we will wish to see you, very soon on our walks…
      Thanks
