Walk Liked and Disliked
What we liked was the security keeping watch on those statues and prints on footpath. Proper lights falling on those homage, Its publicly opened and people were enjoying taking photographs with those Legends. What we didn’t liked was the concept of keeping it wide open without any borders or special effects so walkers don’t over go the same by mistake, also the quality of that stones on which fine prints and signatures are available are fading.
