Search ‘Sanjay Van’ on Google and you get endless stories that put the sprawling forest in the list of Delhi’s ‘most haunted’ places.

But visit the forest – spread over 784 acres along the picturesque Aravalli hills in south Delhi – and you will find the stories are misleading and how.

The forest is all set to become a vibrant lush green urban landscape with newly formed water bodies attracting an abundance of birds.
