It is a hot summer day and passengers inside a bus on its way to Old Delhi are sweating. The bust pulls outside a mosque at ITO and passengers and bus drivers and conductors get down to quench their thirst. The driver and conductors are seen filling their bottles with cold water that comes out from a water kiosk parked just outside the mosque.
This is a daily routine, according to some people who are regular at the mosque. Moreover, many office goers have been noticing this for long and appreciate the step taken by the mosque committee. A few months ago the mosque that is just a few metres from the new ITO metro and opposite the newspaper office was a dilapidated one. However, work has been started and mosque is getting a facelift. It is understood that the mosque also runs a religious school. During Ramzan, the mosque used to have good delicacies for the people who used to turn to break their fast.
Besides, on hot summer days the mosque is a place where commuters stop to quench their thirst. One regular visitor to ITO said it is a good thing that mosque is quenching thirst of passers-by when the temperature is increasing.
