Arow of steadily rising greenery enfolds you as you walk towards the central circular structure. The atmosphere is quiet and strangely still, lending the setting an air of tranquility. As you circumambulate the building - first going up, then coming down - a screen on the roof casts changing shadows around. On this same screen you spot names of martyrs like Delhi Police officer Mohan Chand Sharma, who died in the Batla House encounter three years ago... This is the winning design for the new National Police Memorial that will be constructed at the head of the Shantipath Vista.
