Amritsar -> Delhi

Yesterday was basically a travel day to get to Delhi. (Why the English spelling/pronunciation is "Delhi" rather than the Hindi "Dilly" I can't explain.)
We made one stop at the Maharaja Ranjit Singh Panorama. The Maharaja was the king who united the Punjab under one ruler. His former palace and grounds are now a "museum" that is basically just paintings and dioramas of his life.

In the Punjab water tanks are sometimes turned into sculptures. Eagles and soccer balls are the most popular.
As we approached Delhi the famously polluted was apparent. Today's paper said that the air quality was "Good". Really???
