The Olympic Torch in Delhi: Rajpath to Rajghat

Olympic Torch 2008After traveling through America, Africa and Europe, the much hyped Olympic Torch is finally in Delhi (India)! While a few last minute announced names will be running with the torch at Rajpath, an alternative, non-confrontational Olympic Torch christened Tibetan-Indian Freedom and Peace Torch will be relayed at Rajghat. While the former has almost similar (a lot more, according to media reports) security arrangements as during the Republic Day Parade, the latter is a march open to all citizens who stand for Peace and Freedom.
