Ramlila Maidan: A witness to many battles

All eyes are on Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is scheduled to address a rally on Sunday at Delhi's historic Ramlila Maidan, which has a history of more than 125 years and has seen it all during different times. As history tells us, in 1883 the British started using this deserted place as a shelter for their troops for a long time. The troops set up tents where they could rest after long duty hours. Later after the British grip on power loosened, children used this place (the area between Turkman and Ajmeri gates) for their recreational activities. However, the troops shelter remained side by side.
