Have you watched a game of hockey being played in your neighbourhood park in the recent or distant past? I doubt it. For a city of more than 20 million people, Delhi has a troubling dearth of decent parks. In fact, there may not be more than a handful. The neighbourhood parks enjoy some bustle in the mornings when people can be seen going about their morning walks, quite a few still attached to their smartphones. The pace is leisurely, few break a sweat, and the parks are deserted for the rest of the day.
