Into The Heartland Of India With Museums In Delhi!

Hi all of you, I am Gayatri Chopra, a fashion designer. I am someone who deals with the profession of fashion designing by taking on the cues from nature. The camera which is my constant companion is always used by me, to take candid shots of nature and surroundings which i later use for my work.

Being a real shopaholic I happened to go to Delhi and guess what I discovered-The Best Museums In Delhi. Delhi being a perfect blend of modern and traditional, the first place where one must go is Air Force Museum. It has the best display of planes armory, from Indian air force. It is closed on Monday, Tuesday and the timings are from 10.00 am to 5 PM.
