Delhi's forests have, over the years, acquired a reputation for the illicit, from drug peddling and prostitution to drunk stag parties and embarrassingly amorous couplings. It's a shame, really, as these forests offer a much needed slice of nature to the thirty million odd residents of the city. However, change seems to be afoot with the recent re-opening of the restored Sunder Nursery. The vast parkland not only does a fabulous job of showcasing it's many 16th century tombs and pavillions, but also introduces a novel ecological park to the city, complete with a gurgling stream and a respectable array of resident fauna. The entry ticket and policing ensure that nothing more criminal than a bad kiss can be found behind the bushes, and most other visitors are glad to finally be able to focus on the real bird and bees instead.
