Last afternoon, as we sat working in office on the 17th floor of Mittal Towers, smoke in the air, followed by chaos on the street caught our attention. The view wasn’t all that clear as a result of tall buildings in the vicinity. But we did manage to get a glimpse of the fire that broke out at the Mantralaya, which went on till the top of the building. In fact, we could still see smoke being released from the burnt windows of the Mantralaya this morning as well.
Unlike my other posts, this is not at all a happy article. Do take a look at these images I managed to capture from my office window.

This is how beautiful Mantralaya looked on the eve of Republic Day.
