In this Wednesday, June 5, 2013 photo, Indian laborers work to renovate a Mughal-era lotus pond at Sunder Nursery, a 100 acre field founded by British colonists to grow experimental plants, in New Delhi, India. The renovation is intended to serve as the catalyst for an even more ambitious project: the creation of a mammoth, iconic park that would rival New York's Central Park as a refuge from urban chaos. 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.
