To go the whole nine yards, you need to go there on Sunday. This is when all the workers have a day off and everybody is on the streets. And I mean, literally, on the streets. Sitting on the ground, the streets, standing in huge crowds. Discussion, chatting, enjoying the weekend. This is also, when you will find a huge line in front of the Western Union money transfer office. You can see this on two of the shots below. The line was a couple of hundred meters long.
As you can see on the map below Little India is located right on the NE line, one of the major metro lines, not so far off the “center” and one would not expect such an enormous shift in atmosphere.
It really feels as if you are in a different country. I took a couple of shots while walking around that you can find below.
