Seeped in history and years of political conflict, Ayodhya is a small town that carries big dreams. That the dreams stem from religious upheavals is no surprise. That sentiments have been hurt of Hindus and Muslims is cause for fear. Ayodhya is not just a town, it is a card in the hands of various political parties and religious organizations. For those of you who are a little hazy on the story of the Ram Mandir and Babri Masjid, let me take you for a little walk down memory lane.

Centrally located in Delhi, Lodi Garden is one of the most beautiful parks in Delhi and the medieval monuments in its compound have been landscaped to stand out impressively. The garden is a creation of the British. When they decided to build a new capital at Delhi, the Lodi tombs at the village of Khairpur became part of the New Delhi area. This is when a garden was planned around these tombs and the Lady Willingdon Park was created. Lodi Garden is a post-Independence name
