A few days of bliss is what all of us wish for and this time it was my trip to the holy city Amritsar that I was looking forward to. Well, I have been to Amritsar before but this time it was special because I was staying at Ranjit’s SVAASA, a Heritage Boutique Spa Haveli. The 250-year-old British Colonial Haveli of the Rai Bahadur Rattan Chand family has housed royalty and eminent personalities of all lineages.
It was a real sunny day when I decided to wear my spun kurta in blue & pink with white ribbons to walk through the narrow lanes of Old Delhi. We boarded the metro from INA and after 7-8 stops, reached Chawri Bazar and took a rickshaw ride full of the hustle bustle and the food making activities on the way which were happening- kulfi, tikki, fruit chaat, garam dudh in kulhad & fruit chaat. It was amazing to see the food flavours of Old Delhi. I just kept gazing till we reached the Police Chowk and went to Gali Gulliyan there to reach our destination HAVELI DHARAMPURA amidst the small shops stocking necessities & the lane full of people. We were greeted by Vidyun Goel, daughter of Vijay Goel, the restorer of Haveli Dharampura who ensured that our experience was wonderful.
