DELHI ...a city , an adventure :-D

Yep , as I leave Dilli darling this time …I fell in love with it all over again .This city’s got IT ..don’t ask me to explain what that “it” is ..coz I can’t ! You know despite the sweltering heat , the bheed-bhaad , the pot bellies and melting make-ups …people are happy …there is a lightness in the air which makes you immediately welcome . So much for praises , before you think I have gone off balance ..lemme get back on my usual ‘stuff’

1.Dilli di crowd – oye hoye ! ok... The girls ( *sigh* ) ..only 2 sizes available . XS or XXL .. nothing in between . The XS ones looked bleached ( dunno if it’s the make-up or the original skin tone ) . The xxl ones…yaar ! ya toh kamar andar kar lo , ya skirt lambi kar lo ( either put the tummy in ..or wear longer skirts ) . The aunties …uff ! the  glittering make-up ( dood …in Delhi , it’s omnipresent ) …the vadde-vadde purses , the dyed hair , the head-to-toe matching salwar suits . Oh ! that was our “desi” aunties..the “angreji” ones … aunty !!! you know you get clothes in your size , right ? no need to borrow your daughter’s ;-)

2.Dilli da khana – [ CAUTION : do not read this if you are in some north-indian food deprived place ] . wait …lemme clean my keyboard . My saliva dripped down again . Paranthe…bhature…chaat…sohan halwa …kulche…God ! I menna say you must have eaten this food everywhere …but they do SOMETHING to the food here . And there is no need to tell you dat my jeans just got an inch tighter ..

3.Dilli di language – Dood …I just love the hinjabi ( hindi+Punjabi ) that they speak here . It’s so hearty lovable ( ummm…once you take your respected mothers and sisters out of it ) . it makes you connect instantly . Although not like our Lucknow’s tahzeeb waali hindi ( yeah  right …shoot me ! I am biased ) . Par ji …koi gal nahi …tvadi language bhi best hai ji :-P

4.Dilli di metro – Three cheers to Sheila Dikshit ! now I know why has she been choosen thrice ! dude …the metro rocks looks sexy ..and so totally convenient . And it’s been like many ? 3-4 years and almost the entire Dilli is now connected with it .bravo ! now it looks like our country’s capital . Ummm..although if you think traffic jams would have lessened ..he he he …go out on the streets and you’ll think twice before taking your gaddi out again ;-)

So much for Delhi … I go back to my dear old Lucknow … I daresay I have not even touched the surface in this article …this was just an observation of a few days . Love ya dilli …..can’t wait to explore more in the future ;-)
