The Delhi Christian Chorus in Concert

Yipppeee.....heres the concert picture at last! I love the architecture of this church, its all gothic and really ancient. I think I enjoyed singing better because of the beautiful interior! I love the background of the picture with the huge columns and intricate work on the stone. This is place is the Cathedral Church of Redemption in New Delhi. I have been attending sunday Service here since 1995. I haev so many pleasant memories attached with this place-my confirmation, weddings, choir practices, baptisims, sunday school, carolling during Christmas as well as crushes ;-)
By the bye, can anybody take a random guess of where I am in the picture? :-) (not for people who have seen me!)

Lovely picture. I was waiting for this. The church look beautiful from inside and out (I googled it). I have a church right beside my house too (Anglican) but sometimes feel intimated to go inside.

The choir looks great with beautiful sarees worn by all girls/ladies. Ummmm, I have not seen you, so this is the wildest guess but are you the first one on the left in second row??

Anyways, I found this really wonderful article by Khushwant Singh about a story related to this church...
