About your host

I started my career in the travel industry at the Taj Group of hotels. I left my job to start the first shopping tour of Delhi. Since then I have written two books & have the only podcast on Delhi. Needless to say, I love Delhi. I believe that markets are the best way to experience life in a city. Delhi has fascinating stories hidden in its 100 year old markets. I want to share these with you.
