The Irony Of This CITY!

Our old city, and the so called ‘modern’ city has vast differences in them. But now, the old city has it’s new modern touch! I explored alone , and captured what my eyes found. This photo walk was organized by the group meet me at Khadia and Alliance francaise’d of Ahmedabad. Judge for yourself whether you like this modern old city or not! Feel the real touch of heritage, and see the beauty this city holds.
