• In this Friday, June 7, 2013 photo, Indian laborers work to renovate the Neela Gumbad, or Blue Tomb, as part of a project for the creation of a mammoth, iconic park that would rival New York's Central Park as a refuge from urban chaos, in New Delhi, India. To create that park would require the merger of a string of adjoining gardens, heritage areas and a zoo administered by different government agencies, an incredibly complicated task in a land where bureaucratic turfs are fiercely protected. It would be 1,200 acres, considerably larger than Central Park. It would encompass one of the most impressive collections of medieval Islamic monuments, anchored by the grandiose tomb of Emperor Humayun, a 16th Century prototype for the Taj Mahal.
