New Delhi forms last imperial of India. It was set up as a new capital of the British empire in the early decades of the 20th century. The area still continues to remain the power corridor.

We start from our office at 7 am, and walk till Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium, crossing the historic Jantar Mantar, Hotel Imperial ( on Janpath, earlier known as the Queen’s Way) that define this part of Delhi, then leading to India Gate upto Rashtrapati Bhawan walking through Rajpath ( known earlier as the King’s way) .
This iconic route has wide lawns on both sides with boating avenues and the entire Indian Government machinery operating from Buildings situated on both sides.
We will be supporting our new charity partner, IRMET. The primary activity of the Trust is to provide free remedial education to children from extremely poor families. The Trust helps these children excel at school as well as empower them through theatre, music and art. They also offer modest financial assistance to a small number of students depending on their need and potential to do well. The majority of the children targeted by IRMET are officially enrolled in state run schools, which is the only education option available for the urban poor. Currently, there are 120 children in the care of the Trust. The Center occupies 1400 sq. ft. of space in the Hari Nagar locality of West Delhi. It employs eight teachers and three volunteers. The Center has a nascent library with about 3000 books as well as the means for indoor recreation.
