Like all things in India, this too is a half hearted attempt to creating a village within the urban environs. It succeeds to a large extent with winding pedestrian only lanes and small mom / pop type shops and cafes. However, like the rest of India, there is no heed paid to cleanliness, hygiene, maintenance and the usual culprits that separate India from the rest of the world barring Africa. If the authorities cannot do their job, what stops the shopkeepers who have a vested interest in this place to get together and clean up the place? Lack of will and a stingy attitude that is common among Indians.
Walk the lanes, and you will be rewared with some of the best enterprising restaurants (Tattva, Naivedyam, Pizza Rossa) in all of Delhi.
