Meena Bazaar

Bazaars in 17th century India were normally in the open air. A covered bazaar although of a design common to West Asia, was an innovation in India. Shah Jahan had heard about the arcade in Isfahan, and it seems that the notion of a covered bazaar, stimulated to him by the one he saw in Peshawar in 1646

A Sari Shop at Meena Bazaar: He instructed Mukarmat Khan who was supervising the construction of the Red Fort, to build a similar covered market there. Shah Jahan was greatly impressed as its design was suitable for the hot climate of Delhi.
Chatta Chowk (Covered Bazaar). True to the name, this is a covered bazaar between the gate and the fort itself, now filled with souvenir hawkers.

The power of two

Two to Tango: When the time comes, I hope we'll be able to meet. It takes two to tango. I am ready, the arena is ready

Two hands to greet: There is no friend like an old friend who has shared our morning days, no greeting like his welcome, no homage like his praise.
Two for Love: In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything, and two minus one equals nothing. Two wings to fly: You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair.
