While the author has taken every effort to place the Agra town in High esteem and its image to the world, he has forgotten two things to mention here. The Agra peda is very famous and cannot be missed. While we travel from South towards Delhi, there is station called Raja ki Mandi, there the train used to stop for two minutes. It is good to sip tea on a mud pot. For the first time in my life I have tasted tea in mud pot. And that was quite tasty and refreshing. Like wise the Agra Peda is also very tasty and eatable to those does not have teeth. So next time when you go Agra, taste these things.
