How I found this Place?

I was just wandering nearby Connaught Place and saw that Hunar Haat was going to happen for some days in Delhi. So, I thought I must pay my visit there with my camera. Hunar Haat was itself full of different state cuisines and what we can call in our Hindi Language as “Hunar dur se hi Jhalak Raha tha”.

When I reached at the ending side of Hunar Haat, there were this basement describing “Nomadic Haat”. Initially I thought as it must be a part of Hunar Haat. But later on, I got to know as this Nomadic Haat is been in Delhi for about 2.5 Years long time and it’s operated by NDMC. And more importantly, I had no single clue about its existence. Felt so dumb to call myself a Traveler! 😛
