Exploring the Tughluqabad Fort

Here’s our latest Heritage Walk film 🙂 It’s the mammoth TUGHLUQABAD FORT this time that we visited in Dec 2012. The film showcases in detail most of structures, ruins, etc that lie behind the gigantic walls of this fort and also the walk-leader discusses, in detail, the stories and history associated with the same.

Tughluqabad is a 14th century capital of Delhi (India). The remains of this massive complex stretch as far as the eye can see. It includes a royal tomb which once stood in a lake, palace buildings, dungeons and a secret escape route !

BON VOYAGE !! 🙂

Delhi Winters

A composition specially dedicated to the winters of Delhi 🙂

This track offers a fusion of Indian and Western folk sounds and rhythms.  The composition attempts to depict a typical winter-day in Delhi,  the National Capital of India.  From ambient pads and percussion to the beautiful sounds of Santoor and Sitar and the Punjabi Dholak beats, the track offers a wholesome experience of a New Age fusion of traditional and urban Indian music.
